Broke My Elbow...

chartreauxx | Aug 14, 201310:00 PM

Soooo, yesterday I took a bit of a tumble off my bike (long story short, a car turned right in front of me around a corner in the parking lot, I braked hard, wheels skittered out, girl down).

This morning I finally got talked into going to the doctor, and the result is a broken elbow.

So, I live (mostly) alone. My boyfriend is staying with me for about a week before he returns to Minneapolis (I live in Seattle).

My orthopedist wants me eating a LOT of protein, and a LOT of calcium. Specifically, red meat (beef), oily fish, eggs, and full-fat dairy.

Any suggestions for easy (my arm doesn't move so hot, and lifting things like my cast iron skillet won't work - way too heavy) meals that are calorie, protein, and nutrition-packed (and meet the above guidelines) to speed me back on my way to health? Ideally, things I'll be able to prepare with relative ease once my darling helper here flies home, or things he could cook ahead of time and leave me with for easy reheating.

Thanks in advance for the advice!
