I think when it comes to healthy eating, quite often people go for the easy quick take out option as they assume it is too hard to make a fast, easy and healthy meal.
Let me tell you this is not true.
The majority of my meals take 30 mins to prepare and cook (unless I get sidetracked listening to music and dancing around while I cook – which does happen often)
*Side note – dancing around while you cook is a great way to burn some extra calories and is oh so much fun 🙂
The key to quick and easy healthy meals is not to complicate it.
Chop up veggies and add fresh herbs and garlic for flavour.
If I am chopping veggies – I always chop extra so I can use them for lunch and or dinner the next day (depending on how hungry my husband is and how many left overs I can keep).
Cooking meat and veggies separately allows you to only have to cook fresh meat for the 2nd night.
Some easy meat ideas:
Fry chicken with garlic, lemon and honey.
Bake salmon just with lemon and pepper.
Fry meatballs with cumin and or cinnamon.
Fresh herbs, turmeric, cumin, garlic, pepper go a long way to making things absolutely easy, and tasty.
Here’s an easy lunch bowl I made up over the weekend (not going to lie was pretty proud of this one)
Cook quinoa as per instructions on packet.
Fry asparagus, tomatoes, kale with a dash of balsamic vinegar & half a small garlic cube.
Mash up 1 x avo add lemon, pepper and other half of garlic cube.
Add a bit of salmon, a few nuts
Arrange nicely for a photo then moosh it all together and eat 🙂
