Life is fast-paced, and you must eat. There is a healthier, and less expensive, choice if you're weary of feeling lethargic from an unhealthy diet. Here are seven simple meals:
The deli counter at your local supermarket is brimming with ready-to-eat meals. In ten minutes, you can grab a box of kebabs, slap them on the grill, and have dinner. Kebabs are fantastic because they combine vegetables and meat into a single meal. All you need now is one more vegetable or carbohydrate to make a complete dinner.
#2 Roasted Chicken
Whole roasted chickens are also likely to be available in your grocer's deli. Grab a bagged salad and you've got a complete, healthy meal on the table in less than five minutes. And if your family doesn't finish the chicken at dinner, you'll have leftovers that you can turn into chicken salad for lunch or dinner the next day. Two meals for the price of one.
Italian cuisine is always welcome, and pasta does not need to be topped with tomato sauce. For a quick and healthful lunch, use spaghetti squash, a sliced onion, and a few sautéed vegetables with some pre-shredded parmesan cheese for a low-carb meal.
Sardines include a lot of protein and are delicious. Sardines are good if you enjoy tuna seafood. Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, sardines are an excellent choice for those who want a low-cost, high quality source of protein.
#5 Healthy Shake
A healthy shake is an easy and tasty way to get in your daily servings of fruits, vegetables, protein, and other nutrients. With the right ingredients, you can make a healthy shake at home with little time or effort.
#6 Turkey Breast
Preparing a turkey breast for a quick healthy meal is an easy process. It is often the most affordable option for dinner, too. It's juicy, flavorful, and it goes well with just about any side dish you can imagine.
Ham can be prepared in a number of ways. One easy way to prepare it is by chopping it up and adding it to an omelet or frittata; another option is to simply heat up the slices with some eggs and toast on the side for breakfast or brunch. Ham can also be prepared with other ingredients such as pineapple, onions, green beans and rice to make a complete meal that is ready in 20 minutes or less.
A key to preparing these quick healthy meals is planning ahead. You can prepare the ingredients in advance and then just mix them together when you're ready to eat. This way, you'll have everything on hand and won't be tempted by junk food because it's too much of a hassle to make anything fresh!
