Does anyone have any recipes that are super quick yet healthy for when one is really in a bind for time? I am particularly interested in unprocessed food recipes.
Anyhow, here are some of my quick recipes as examples of what I am looking for. This is about all I have, hence the request for suggestions. 🙂 Thanks in advance.
Zucchini & Sardines with Hotsauce (dinner)
-Chop up 2 whole zucchinis. Open a can of sardines. Dump all of this into a bowl with some hotsauce and mix. Eat (this is like, half a dinner… have a piece of fruit if still hungry). Time to prepare: 1 minute.
Cottage Cheese with Apples (breakfast)
-Pour 8 oz of cottage cheese into a bowl. Chop up an apple and put in the cottage cheese. Sprinkle a bunch of cinnamon on this mixture. Eat as a quick breakfast (is surprisingly filling). Time to prepare: 1 minute.
Pear Smoothies (breakfast)
-In a blender, put in 6 ice cubes. Chop up a pear into 6 or so pieces and throw into the blender along with 1 scoop of protein powder (I use vanilla Designer Whey), and half a cup of water. (Additional things one can throw in there: a raw organic egg, slivered almonds, and/or half a cup of milk…) Blend and drink. Makes about 2 glasses (drink both) for breakfast. Time to prepare: 3 minutesAnonymousMay 1, 2007 at 10:54 pmPost count: 0
With warm weather and summer around the corner, try the following:
In your food processor or blender, toss in 6 large, cut up ripe tomatoes, a couple of stalks of celery, small orange, red and green sweet peppers, clove of garlic, juice from a lemon, a ripe avocado (optional), and a few drops of hot sauce (optional & to taste). Blend until smooth, then chill in the fridge. Serve & eat chilled; serves 4. This goes really well with garlic bread.imported_sandy613MemberAugust 16, 2008 at 2:31 amPost count: 1
A great breakfast, believe it or not, is two handfuls of spinach in a blender with 2 cups of water and fruit of your choice. I like bananas (1 1/2 usually) or frozen berries or a combination (some frozen fruit is good for the recipe or add ice cubes). Blend and drink. A healthy dish for any meal or a snack. Add cinnamon if you like. Sometimes I add cocoa powder if I am really in the mood for a chocolate snack. YOU DO NOT taste the spinach. It's called a green smoothie.imported_refuge821MemberAugust 20, 2008 at 2:26 amPost count: 183
I've tossed a variety of frozen veggies into the crockpot, added some vegetarian beef broth powder, and enough water to cook as many noodles as you want to put in. (you could use brown rice instead) Wallah! Soup when you return for lunch or dinner. Get out some really great bread or crackers to go with it. You'll have enough leftovers to make a few more minute meals.
