Non-nutritive Food Hacks
  • ~Cake Mix
  • When baking box cake, substitute coffee for water in chocolate cake mix. You can also add a few spoonfuls of coffee grounds too.
  • ~Cake Mix Cookies
  • You can make cookies instead of cake by changing the proportions of the called for ingredients. For one box of cake mix, add ½ cup – 105 grams of melted coconut oil or butter and one egg. Combine ingredients, and spoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet and cook for 9-12 minutes at 350 degrees. Try adding some chocolate-y candy pieces: (yolo anyone?)
  • ~Cake and Ice Cream Cones
  • Making cupcakes? Try baking them in premade ice cream cones.
  • The flat bottomed Styrofoam-esque ones are the easiest to start with.
  • If you construct a holder, you can use the coveted sugar cones.
  • Keep in mind, the flat bottomed ones are easier to hand out or display for group events.
  • I recommend skipping frosting. Fill the cones half way with the batter; there will be a little room to balance a scoop of ice cream perfectly.
  • ~Top Ramen Scramble
  • Crumble 2 packages of Ramen, brown in a skillet
  • Throw away the MSG flavor packets
  • Add 1 to 1 ½ cups of water (375 mL), stir to absorb
  • Add chopped rosemary, oregano, sage, etc.
  • Swirl some soy sauce on top
  • Add 2-4 eggs, beaten
  • Chopped green onion
  • Stir and enjoy

~Spam Masubi This is the 'gateway sushi'. It is definitely junk food. Start with a can of Spam, sliced, then fry in teriyaki sauce. Place this atop a small egg sized ball of vinegar sushi rice. Encircle with a strip of Nori paper and moisten to secure.
