Eating Well When You Feel Lazy

Penne Aglio-olio-Anything

Put down the mac and cheese, and back away from that can opener. I know the terrifying depths laziness can take a person, but don’t take it out on your stomach. A Doritos panino topped with Brie cheese and pickles isn’t creative — it’s a cry for help. Here are some foods that taste awesome and don’t require much effort.

Penne Aglio-olio-Anything

No excuse, folks. Pasta practically cooks itself. And this recipe doesn’t call for a trip to the store or to your neighbor’s house to ask for missing ingredients. Just throw in whatever you’ve got and it’s totally good enough.

Corn Chowder With Chili Powder and Crumbled Cotija Cheese

Corn Chowder With Chili Powder and Crumbled Cotija Cheese

I’d be willing to do horrible, horrible things to get my hands on some bacon chocolate right about now. So you should be able to get that lazy butt off the couch for this chowder (that totally has bacon in it). Plus, you’ll get about four to six servings out of it, so this recipe will actually allow you to be lazy for a few extra days.

Honey-Infused Mediterranean Yoghurt Parfait With Stewed Plums and Peaches

Yogurt Parfait

You should be thankful this recipe doesn’t include instructions on how to make yoghurt. You don’t even have to pick your own fruit. Yes, it takes a bit of stewing, but this is dessert: the only course we’re never too lazy to skip!

Buddy, you know that a second bag of chips probably isn’t a good idea. Get up, make something, and it might just inspire you to tackle other things. Or order takeout — at least you’d be making the effort to pick up the phone. Baby steps.
