If you’ve had a long day, sometimes the simplest foods make for the best comforts. That’s why quick meals are some of our favorites.
Cooking on a budget with simple meals is also a big consideration during these economic times. However, we should neither compromise the taste of the food nor the fact that we need to eat healthy. How do you balance it all? Let’s take a look at a few quick ideas.
Noodles are inexpensive and easy to prepare. As a powerhouse of carbs, noodles also give you a considerable amount of energy. Freshen up your favorite noodles by adding sauteed zucchini and some sun-dried tomatoes to give the meal a whole new taste
It is important to consider some protein in a meal. Low-calorie fish dressed with some red pepper works well. Do you like chicken? Topping off a chicken breast with some glazed pecans and adding some mango juice proves to be another irresistible meal that won’t break the bank. Roasting some pork with some sliced apples gives an aromatic taste to the meat. Preparation of this meal is very easy and the fact that the impressive flavor brought about by simmered apples gives us a good reason to try it out.
Another fish favorite is salmon and fruit salsa. When mixed with a little vinegar, fresh raspberries and roasted peaches with salmon give us yet another mouth-watering meal.
One of the best things about these easy and healthy meals is that they take just 10 to 15 minutes to prepare. Break out your favorite Flirty Apron and whip together some yummy and simple comfort food! Enjoy.
