So, basically, my dad just had a heart attack. This is on top of him having managed to kill his pancreas over the last decade or so. He's OK now, but it raises the point to me that I'm 30 years old, I've inherited his constitution, and my self-preservational skills suck.
I've been telling myself to eat better (he's like me, he lives off junk food). The problem is, as I've tried being aware of what I eat, I've discovered that I'm either eating something that's likely to kill my pancreas, or something that's clogging my arteries.
Like Oatmeal is good for your heart, right? But I have to put so much sugar on it to make it palatable that it's like instant diabetes. Or I'll get vegetables, but then they fry them with so much oil that it moots the point. Or I'll eat meat instead. It's like there are no healthy alternatives.
Part of my problem is that I live in a country where fresh food = diarrhea, so everything is fried. Part of the problem also is that I suck at cooking, hate doing it, and realistically speaking I am unlikely to move beyond making rice and Ramen (both of which discourage me from doing it at all). I will NEVER prepare 3 healthy meals per day, that's simply the way it's always going to be.
So my question is, what can I eat that won't ultimately destroy me, that's relatively simple to make (as in, a 5-year old can do it), that doesn't involve an oven, or that I can buy with relative ease?
I'm self-preservationally challenged, so don't hesitate to condescend when educating me. Also, offer suggestions. I just need some ideas.
