Quick Healthy Meals Made Simple

Cooking nutritious meals are easier than you think. The first step in preparing quick healthy meals is to make sure your pantry, refrigerator, and freezer are well-stocked. It also speeds meal preparation to do a quick inventory of the food you have on hand. Realize even the best cooks do not make every meal from scratch. Food items like frozen chicken breasts and pre-cut frozen vegetables and fruit can easily be put together for a quick healthy meal.

For a quick pasta dish try adding sautéed or frozen vegetables into tomato sauce and serve it over whole grain pasta. You may choose to purchase healthy foods that are ready to serve. Go to your local grocery store and buy a rotisserie chicken. Remove the skin and add a large garden or fruit salad to complete your meal. Today's leftover chicken, rice and veggies becomes tomorrow's chicken stir fry. Here are some additional quick healthy meal ideas.

  • Frozen whole-grain waffles or pancakes topped with low-fat yogurt and fruit
  • Cheese and vegetable omelets using egg substitute; fruit cup; whole-grain toast with butter substitute such as Molly McButter
  • Veggie pizza topped with low-fat cheese; garden salad with low-fat dressing or salsa
  • Rotisserie chicken; fresh or frozen vegetables; small baked or sweet potato with butter substitute
  • Veggie or garden burger on a whole-wheat bun loaded with lettuce, tomato, pickles, and/or onion; steamed or grilled veggies; sugar free jello with fruit
  • Whole wheat pasta with prepared tomato sauce and leftover grilled chicken; garden salad
