I know I should stay away from whey and soy proteins, but what about hemp? I was thinking of using it to help me bulk. So, I can have something quick to consume between meals. It would be better than eating raw eggs, which I have been doing.

Why raw, because I can't cook and using the gas stove in my house makes me want to gag.

My daughter cooks her eggs in the microwave, there is a trick but once you know how it's easy. Let me know if you are interested.

Why does cooking with the gas stove make you want to gag? Is it a smell from the gas? Do you use teflon pans? I found that I can't tolerate the outgassing from teflon pans now even though I never noticed it before. I am also super sensitive to smells...for instance, I make homemade breakfast sausage, cook it and freeze it. My kids love it but I can't stand the smell of it reheated and they even have to eat it in another room.

You can just scramble the eggs in the microwave if you don't have any alternative but you need to be able to cook....You could buy an electric skillet like this: (http://www.amazon.com/Presto-06852-16-Inch-Electric-Skillet/dp/B0007XRTDG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1250545829&sr=8-1) or even an electric burner like this: (http://www.amazon.com/Proctor-Silex-34101-Proctor-Silex-Burner/dp/B000690WNU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1250545745&sr=8-1). The electric burner would allow you to cook brown rice whereas the electric skillet would be good for sauteing or frying things. How do you get by without brown rice? I always have brown rice in the freezer in baggies (using Deb's instructions) so that I can just scramble hamburger with garlic and serve with rice if I don't know what else to cook. Do you know what I am talking about? Do you need help with cooking?

To scramble eggs: Put a pat of butter (organic) in the bottom of a ceramic or stoneware bowl (no plastic). put in a few eggs, sea salt, pepper, etc. Stir the eggs and put in the microwave (don't worry about the butter being a lump - it will all work out). Now microwave for 30 seconds. Stir again, microwave a short while, stir, microwave, and so on until done. Once you do it you will get a routine going and know exactly how long to let the microwave run before stirring. Err on the side of caution at first (stir too much rather than too little) and add more butter at the end to keep them moist. Just be careful not to let them cook too long or they will be tough (still edible but not as enjoyable). My little brother used to do this when he was too young to be allowed to use the stove unsupervised.

BTW, please pick a username so we can "get to know you" and your general circumstances. It can be anything - it doesn't have to be your name. It will also help you later by allowing you to search for your former posts. I refer back to answers I have been given on here all the time. Doing a search for posts by "Anonymous" would be an exercise in frustration. :^)

Thanks kristy for the instructions on scrambled eggs. My daughter doesn't actually scramble them, just sort of turn them over. The trick, like you say, is to get to know your own microwave and its power, and know when to stir or turn the eggs, being careful not to cook too long. It only takes about ten seconds more once they are getting done. Trial and error in the beginning - but well worth it when you are in a hurry or don't cook.

I want to register, but I can't figure out how. THere is now "register now" link. Also, I can't stand the gas smell and just the fact that I don't want to breath that gas in. My friend has a new electric stove the kind that has a surface that heats up rather than having burners. I live in a townhouse and thus have a crappy stove.

I don't know if there is any way to register. Just put your chosen username in the username box below your post and then hit the preview/post message and it will be remembered and inserted in the username box for you every time you open the message board (at least mine is in firefox browser). That's the only way to "register" that I know of.
