Life can be stressful at the best of times. Trying to hold down a career, raise children, have a social life and live healthily, all at the same time, can be challenging.
As they say in the computing world…
People can go for an average of 30 days without food!
If you can’t have a delicious healthy meal right now, just wait a bit longer! By waiting you will cherish the taste and fulfilment of a delicious, fresh meal even more!
But you still don’t have time?… Well now there is no excuse because below are some recipes that are healthy, full of vitamins, extremely quick to cook, easy to prepare and just what you need!
We know… Sometimes after a hard day’s work the last thing you want to do is to worry about what you’re going to eat without diving into the fridge and grabbing a quick snack.
But train yourself to be better, to be more disciplined, to achieve your goals…
Feta and Tomato Omelette
This feta and tomato omelette is a perfect meal to start our quick healthy snacks!
With only 355 calories per serving and 6 grams of carbohydrates, this meal can be great for two people and only takes 10 minutes to prepare and cook.
This is a great dish full of flavour and is guaranteed to fill the hole in your stomach.
Thai Coconut Pumpkin Soup
Coconut and pumpkin soup is a great for a healthy starter or a quick meal.
This dish has only 170 calories, is low in carbohydrates and is guaranteed to tickle your taste buds.
Often referred to by the MHV team as “the perfect winter meal,” you can experiment with all kinds of different ingredients. In this recipe we have included chillies to give it that extra kick and flavour.
And if you cannot get your hands on pumpkin why not try butternut squash? It has exactly the same nutritional value and provides another great Mediterranean taste.
Craving a quick snack? Falafels are the way forward.
Although not usually a main dish and more of a starter, falafels are a quick way of easing your hunger when you just don’t have time to prepare a three-course meal.
Originating from Egypt, falafels are extremely quick to prepare, high in protein, fibre and complex carbohydrates.
The good thing about falafels is you can prepare as many as you like, creating a healthy snack for the whole week if you wish! Why not add some pita bread and salad to create a healthy lunchbox filler.
Honey Glazed Salmon
Another fantastic meal with only 5 ingredients!
Honey glazed salmon is best served with vegetables or rice and only takes 30 minutes to prepare and cook.
If you’re looking for more protein in your diet then look no further as one serving can pack around 20-30 grams of protein.
It is low in fat, carbohydrates and only contains 330 calories.
Again, like other recipes in this article there are various ways you could experiment with your ingredients; for example, if honey doesn’t tickle your taste buds, why not try maple syrup, or add a mix of salad instead of vegetables.
Last in our quick, healthy meal menu is broccoli pasta.
Although the dish includes a completely different set of ingredients it has a very similar nutritional value to our honey glazed salmon recipe – it’s low in fat, low in carbohydrates and has more or less the same in protein content.
Broccoli pasta is super healthy and extremely easy to prepare.
Again like the other recipes in this article, this meal gives you the opportunity to change the ingredients if you wish to do so.
