You already know that preparing meals at home is good for your health and your wallet. But let’s face it — you have other priorities and minimal free time. So, spending a lot of time in the kitchen isn’t always at the top of your to-do list.
So, we have compiled a list of recipes that are easy and healthy — and ready in 10 minutes.
1. Peach Cobbler Oatmeal
Forget flavoured oatmeal packets and go au naturel with this oatmeal. With chopped pecans fresh peaches, nuts of your choice, and cinnamon, it will satisfy your sweet tooth so well that you may find yourself making it for dessert.
2. Simple Poached Egg and Avocado Toast
Avocado toast is all the rage, but adding a poached egg just takes it to a new level and completes the trifecta of nutrition: fats, protein, and carbs. Fresh herbs and parmesan cheese sprinkled on top make it look and taste fancy.
3. Oatmeal Blueberry Yogurt Pancakes
A stack of homemade flapjacks doesn’t take that long to make. These are gluten-free and high-protein, but they still taste amazing and fluffy, thanks to oats, bananas, vanilla, and of course blueberries.
4. Cheddar-Garlic Grits with Fried Eggs
A Southern classic, cheesy grits don’t have to be a complete fat and calorie bomb. Cook them in water rather than milk and omit the butter. Keep the cheddar: The 2 tablespoons per serving here keep the dish gooey and rich and provides almost 10% of your daily calcium.
Then add eggs for, chopped chives for their slightly oniony flavour, and garlic, which makes everything taste better.
5. Hot Quinoa Cereal
Quinoa takes some time to cook. While some people have said it can be nuked, that takes more than 10 minutes in most microwaves. But quinoa flakes can be ready in a flash.
Cook them with dried berries in your preferred milk, and then top away with nuts, nut butter, seeds, and fresh fruit.
