If you have a crock pot, you can literally throw the frozen things in there and set it to cook and come back, stir and eat.

Great tips, Ivory. I like utilizing frozen veggies.

But I don't want to do any chopping myself, and don't really want to have to brown ground beef or turkey either. It doesn't take very long, I know, but I don't even want to spend 10 minutes cooking meat, then a couple more putting a casserole or something together before cooking/baking it. Then the time to clean up.

I will have just a granola bar or something before I do that. I'm looking for "pull it out of the fridge, throw it together and eat it" kind of ideas!

I like to try and plan things ahead, like chop and freeze meat so I can defrost and cook, and pre-chop veggies or use frozen. I can pretty much throw ground beef/turkey, pre-chopped peppers and onions, and frozen broccoli and cauliflower together with a can of crushed tomatoes and some Italian seasoning and let it cook for dinner. I usually have frozen rice and beans to add to things as well.

I've heard great things about almond butter too. A lttle less fat & cals & a lot less sodium but more expensive. For dinner tonight I'm having baby carrots dipped in fat free italian dressing. 4 ounces turkey breast & my kids green beans if they don't finish them(baked w/pam spray & a little salt. A glass of milk & a nectarine. Thinking about trying House Foods Tofu Shiritaki tonight. Supposedly guilt free pasta. Have you tried them? How about you any suggestions? I'm always looking for a quick healthy meal :)

Seems like whenever I have peanut butter, I end up going over on fat for the day. Otherwise, I love pb on toast for breakfast!

Sounds yummy and versatile, too. But since I'm someone who doesn't cook, (cuz I hate it), I don't keep chopped anything in the fridge LOL!

So...I think I would microwave an egg, use pre-cut or bagged veggies bought at the store, add toppings and wrap. emoticon

I actually like cooking, but not under a deadline - which I always am.

my super quick go-to meal for me? Egg & veggie burrito. Scramble an egg (or eggbeaters), put it on a small flour or whole grain tortilla with some low fat cheese and the veggies of your choice (I like baby spinach leaves and/or bell peppers - I try to keep some chopped up in the fridge for quick work like this) - wrap it up, and there you go. Easy-peasy - and good for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Hahaha, that is awesome. We are so busy these days with jobs, kids, and games that this is a much needed topic. I'll have to try that recipe, thanks for sharing. More time for Kinect games is always a good thing!

I hate cooking. I like to just pull something out of the fridge or cupboard, maybe heat in the microwave or oven, and eat it. That has led to lots of bad meals (ever had just french fries for dinner?).

So let's share our EXTREMELY quick and HEALTHY recipes or ways to have good things to eat!

It's got to be something that takes, like, 5 minutes or less to prepare, including any chopping, peeling, mixing, measuring, etc. (Except for microwave or baking time - although the quicker, the better!)

Here's a start, one of my fav dinners. Microwave a Morningstar Farms veggie patty, put on one piece of toast if you want (or not), top with canned pineapple or pickles. Add microwave veggies for a side. Eat!

Share your extremely quick meals here, and then we can all get back to playing Kinect games!
