Healthy Recipes That Are Easy To Make

Today I want to share with you some of my best Healthy Recipes That Are Easy To Make. Hopefully you’ll be able to enjoy these healthy meals and encourage others to do the same. The recipes listed below have been enjoyed by my family and friends dozens of times, and are so easy that even a kid can make them.

Healthy Meals in 12 Minutes or Less

Being hungry sucks (it’s a scientific fact). So why spend hours cooking a gourmet feast when a nutritious meal could be only 12 minutes away from getting from the kitchen to your plate? Skip the grumbling tummy, the hangriness, and the cranky guests, and serve up any one of these 52 healthy meals that are so quick and easy, you’ll wonder why you ever ordered takeout.

Fast and Easy Breakfasts

1. Cacao and Blueberry Smoothie

cacao and blueberry smoothie

Um, YUM. This smoothie is full of amazing flavors from blueberry, vanilla, coconut milk, and of course, cacao powder. You can whip this up in under five minutes, but if you’re especially lazy in the morning, just make at night to take on the go the next day.

2. Honey Lemon Ricotta Breakfast Toast

Say goodbye to boring toast. This version dresses up a piece of bread with ricotta, lemon, figs, honey, and pistachios for a fancy (but super fast) breakfast treat. Pro tip: these guys work great as apps if you put them on crostinis instead.

3. Poached Egg and Avocado Breakfast Salad

You can have salad for breakfast, too. Just whip up a poached egg (or any other style you love) and toss it in a bowl with some tomatoes, lettuce, cooked quinoa, avo, and pistachios for an added crunch. Just cook the quinoa the night before if you want it truly under 12 minutes.

4. Healthy Single Serving Blueberry Muffin

single serve healthy muffin

This healthy breakfast is a little more of a healthy dessert, but we’ll let it slide. Made from healthier subs like sorghum flour, applesauce, almond milk, and flaxseed, this quick microwavable muffin is a guilt-free way to start your morning.

5. Pina Colada Yogurt Parfaits

Take a trip to the tropics with this pineapple and coconut flavored breakfast. We love pairing these sweet fruits with the bitterness of Greek yogurt to balance out the flavors.

6. Blue Corn Breakfast Tacos With Scrambled Eggs

It doesn’t get much better (or easier!) than breakfast tacos. This version stuffs eggs, avocado, and smoked salmon inside of blue corn tortillas for a rainbow colored breakfast. Feel free to switch up the recipe with some of your favorite fix-ins, too.

7. Homemade Flavored Instant Oatmeal

This blogger has recipes for four different flavors of awesome instant oats: blueberry vanilla, chocolate banana, walnut and date, and strawberries and cream. You can store them in the fridge for up to five days and make them in minutes whenever you’re ready!

8. Peanut Butter Breakfast Toast Four Ways

Peanut butter toast might be a classic, but that doesn’t mean it has to be boring! These four variations are awesome for breakfast, or a post workout snack. If you’re gluten-free swap out regular toast for a rice cake or a gluten-free bread.

9. Egg Breakfast Wraps with Bacon, Avocado, and Tomato

breakfast wraps with eggs

These “wraps” are a creative and gluten-free way to hold your B.A.T. (bacon, avo, tomato) combo. Instead of using a wrap, the blogger uses an egg “tortilla,” which is essentially an egg-only omelet that you wrap up. This one will make you feel very fancy.

10. Turmeric Tofu Scramble

This vegan scramble is perfect for rushed mornings or lazy-night dinners. Just combine tofu with lots of yummy spices and veggies and eat it ontop of some avo-toast. If you’re vegetarian, not vegan, feel free to throw some scrambled eggs in, too.

Healthy Meals You Can Make in 10 Minutes or Less

Quick and nutritious

You know the facts: Preparing meals at home is good for your health and your wallet. But let’s face it — you have other priorities taking up space in your schedule and minimal free time, so spending hours or even minutes in the kitchen isn’t always at the top of your to-do list.

So many things can crowd out meal prep (think: long hours at work, significant others, keeping in touch with family, maybe even a workout here and there).YOU MIGHT LIKE24 Healthy and Portable Mason Jar Meals

11. Mediterranean Panzanella

17. Mediterranean Panzanella

Rather than top a salad with bagged croutons, whip up this Tuscan version with toasted pita bread.

There’s the usual good-alone-but-better-together suspects expected in something called “Mediterranean”: tomatoes, cucumbers, feta, and olives. The olives are key since the fats in them help your body absorb the nutrients in the veggies.

12. Crunchy Asian Ramen Noodle Salad

15. Crunchy Asian Ramen Noodle Salad

This colorful, crunchy salad is just what the doctor ordered when leafy-greens-based varieties are boring you.

Crunchy coleslaw mix and dried ramen noodles (swap in crunchy rice noodles for a less-processed option) are tossed with avocado for healthy fat, edamame for protein, and mango for vision-protecting beta-carotene.

13. Quick and Easy Chicken Burrito

14. Quick & Easy Chicken Burrito

Leftover chicken finds a new home in this quick burrito. Mix it with avocado and cheese before wrapping it up in a tortilla and cooking it. We’d take it one step further and add some peppers, onions, and maybe some greens to the filling. Bonus: Make a few at once and freeze the extras for an even faster lunch next time.

14. Salmon and Herbed Bean Salad

13. Salmon and Herbed Bean Salad

Bored with tuna salad? Try canned salmon mixed with creamy cannellini beans, veggies, and fresh herbs for a super easy meal that’s as delicious on its own as it is in a pita or with whole-grain crackers.

15. Creamy Buffalo Chicken and Black Bean Quesadillas

16. Creamy Buffalo Chicken Black Bean Quesadillas

If you always reach for the wings on game day, this is the lunch quesadilla for you. It’s spicy, creamy, and loaded with flavor. Black beans bump up the fiber and protein, and green onions add a little extra zing. Feel free to scale back on the sour cream or use Greek yogurt instead.

16. Tomato Salad–Stuffed Avocados

12. Tomato-Stuffed Avocados

Not only good for guacamole, moist desserts, and rich smoothies, avocados are designed to be stuffed!

Remove the pit and fill the center with a mixture of tomato, feta, onion, and herbs for a filling meal that’s pretty enough to serve at a brunch. After all, not every breakfast-meets-lunch recipe should take hours to prepare.

17. Caprese Quesadilla

19. Caprese Quesadilla

Italian and Mexican favorites team up for a mashup that’s better than anything mixed by a DJ. The how-to is pretty obvious: Fill a tortilla with tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil; cook until the cheese is melted; and drizzle with balsamic glaze for a flavor-packed final touch.

18. Herb and Onion Frittata

18. Herb Onion Frittata

While this recipe uses liquid eggs, you can substitute two whole eggs since the cholesterol and fat in the real thing are nothing to worry about. Add whatever herbs — fresh or dried — appeal to you, since they all have different flavors and health benefits.

Like pizza and mashed potatoes, frittata tastes just as good cold as it does hot, so go ahead and double the recipe and eat the other half for breakfast tomorrow.

19. Turkey-Provolone Wrap with Avocado Mayo

20. Turkey Provolone Wrap with Avocado Mayo

This isn’t just another turkey sandwich. Smear mayo and heart-healthy avocado on a tortilla and roll it up with lettuce, provolone, and tomato. This recipe is soft, creamy, and crunchy, but view it as a starting place and play with other fillings.
