The 3 Best Meats To Cook With From Someone Who Hates Cooking Meat

If there is one thing that I have learned during my time in college, it is that I HATE cooking meat.

That being said, here are the top three meats that I cook on the regular, all without the nausea that comes with cooking meat.

1. Ground Turkey 

Ground turkey is probably the easiest meat to cook, just throw it in a pan and chuck some taco seasoning on it. I usually purchase the all white 97% fat free kind, just because *shocker* I also hate draining the fat from the pan after cooking high-fat meats.

Ground turkey is also super cheap, coming in at around $2.99/lb. Perfect for a low-budget college student!

2. Thinly-Sliced Chicken Breast

Chicken breast is so versatile, you can put it in almost anything. It is also really easy to season up or down depending on the flavor you are going for. I purchase the thinly-sliced chicken breast from my grocery store's meat counter, and it usually fares well when I freeze some of it during the week. Also, since it is thinly-sliced, it cooks way faster, and you do not have the constant fear of eating thick, undercooked chicken (ew).

Chicken breast is not as cheap as ground turkey, but it still rings up at around $3.99/lb.

3. Spicy Italian Sausage 

Spicy Italian Sausage is a treat for me. It is already in a held shape, meaning you don't have to handle raw meat at any point which I love. It is also already seasoned AND cheap. I cook it in a pan, cut it up, and eat it with sauerkraut, but that's just me. It's super versatile!

Spicy Italian sausage is also pretty cheap, I usually get mine for $1/piece or less!

These three mess-free staples will not gross you out, and they are full of protein needed to sustain a late-night study session or a long workout. They are also wallet-friendly for the average penniless college student.

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy
https://www.pexels.com/photo/shallow-focus-photography-of-yellow-sunflower-field-under-sunny-sky-1169084/

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
