Healthy Meals Ready in Under 30 minutes

Eating healthy and eating fast doesn’t always go together. But with a bit of foresight and some simple kitchen prep, it’s easy to whip up a delicious and nutritious meal. I usually come out of my dancing class around 10pm, too late to have dinner but still nice to have a Strawberry Yogurt Parfait or an Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal, delicious and ready in 5 - 10 minutes.

 BREAKFASTBreakfast is said to be the most important meal of the day, fueling our bodies for work, play and productivity. Be careful about skipping breakfast - as this can put a damper on your day and lead to unhealthy weight gain.

1. Poached Eggs with roasted Tomatoes.
Why: Eggs are chock full of protein, which our bodies need to build new cells and maintain tissues.  
Meal is ready in: 25 minutes
Improvise: Don’t be constrained to adding roasted tomatoes - sauté some spinach and garlic to give your poached eggs a kick.

2. Strawberry Yogurt Parfait
Why: Yogurt contains probiotics – a good bacteria that can help with digestion  in addition to calcium which strengthens bones.
Meal is ready in: 10 minutes
Improvise: There are tons of variations on the yogurt parfait, and the tasty concoction can contain whatever you like. Make sure to keep it on the healthy side with fat-free yogurt, low-in-sugar toppings and healthy grains or nuts. Be sure to try the blueberry quinoa parfait or a mango avocado breakfast.



3. Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Why: This heart-healthy classic is known to lower cholesterol and even boost your immune system.
Meal is ready in: 5-15 minutes
Improvise: Oatmeal can be prepared in a stove top. To maximize the health benefits, cook oats in water instead of milk.

Combine the water, apple juice, and apples in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, and stir in the rolled oats and cinnamon. Return to a boil, then reduce heat to low, and simmer until thick, about 3 minutes. Spoon into serving bowls, and pour milk over the servings.


Bon Appétit!
