Cooking huuge batches - Is this ok?

Hey there,

I havent the time to cook a good nutritious meal everyday as well as train and work.

What I do like most friends at my gym, is make a huge amount of a meal. To give an expample we'll sat Bolognese. This isn't dolmio and is made from scratch with quality ingredients. No salt or sugar etc. Made with lean beef or turkey mice or chicken peices etc.

This lasts me 3 days. It sits on the wok with the lid on and when I fancy some I make some Pasta fresh and put a scoop of Bolognese from the wok in the microwave so its hot enough to kill any bacteria. ( I dont reheat it in the wok I just store it there)

Is this OK to do? Sorry, cooking isnt my strong point.

    if you want you could freeze it as well if you want to store it longer. Make sure you store itin the fridge though and not out as you will risk getting e.coli!

    Thanks - Wouldn't freezing it bugger its nutritional values etc?

    Is it better kept in the fridge then than just left in the Wok with lid on etc?

    freezing wont hurt it at all, you can keep it in the fridge just dont keep it out at room temp as you will get food poisoning this way

    Freezing is fine!

    Infact i would freeze it over leaving it out tbh...reduces chances of getting some filthy food poisioning!

    Every morning at 5.30am I get a giant wok out and fry up a big-arse load of beef and chicken and put it in a tub to take to work. I take my scales and weigh up 150g of it every 2 hours, lovely!!

    I'm on a keto diet at the mo so no carbs for me, just veg which I do the same (though cold veg is rank!)
    When I'm bulking I do the same with carbs, boil up a pan full of rice and take that with me too.

    Before that I used to rely on scrambled eggs in the microwave and tinned tuna, but I got really sick of it so I started making the effort!

    Green beans and asparagus aren too bad cold. In the hot weather I just prefer salad.

    I like cucumbers, I can happily eat a full one 3 times a day no problem. Cold spinach is gross but I can handle green beans, broccolli and peas so long as I've kept them 'snappy'!!

    mixed peppers are ok cold too and you can cook them with your meat.

    I wouldn't eat spinach cold unless it was raw.

    Fair play. Red onions too! For cooking and raw, great for flavanoids

    Save yourself getting up so early. Put the correct amount of Rolled oats and chocolate Whey in a small bag or tub the night before.

    Blend or whisk at work with water when required.

    Same nutrient dense food as Chicken, Tuna or Beef with Rice or Pasta but so much easier as you just drink it down AND it tastes of chocolate so its as if you cheating all day

    No, leave it in the fridge between meals. Taking a scoop and micing it is fine though. At this time of year with the hot weather, it's a bad idea to leave food out for that long, especially meat. In the fridge it will be fine for up to 5 days.

    Almost tropical here in London

    It's still a good idea to keep stuff in the fridge though. I'm guessing it's not very far from the cooker to the fridge?
