"Go-To" Quick Meals for Fast, Healthy Dinners

Once again, the meeting ran long. Everything was crazy all day long. At this point you are so exhausted and there is really no time to prepare a good healthy meal anymore. Drive through or pizza tonight. No choice. Or is there?

One reader sent in a great idea, asking that we share some ideas for healthy meals that we can throw together in under 10 minutes. This is the ultimate challenge! We need some protein, fruits/veggies, whole grains, and maybe a little healthy fat to round out our meal. Are you ready?

Question: What is your "go to" meal when you have to make dinner in a flash and you still want it to be healthy?

Reader krispy kreme's 5-minute meal:
  • rotisserie chicken
  • bag of steam in the bag frozen veggies
  • Uncle Ben's 90 second brown rice
Dinner done!

Loaded Bean Burritos are a quick meal for us:
  • whole grain soft tortillas
  • canned fat-free refried beans, zapped in microwave until hot
  • low fat shredded cheddar cheese
  • salsa
  • shredded dark leafy lettuce
  • sliced olives or tomatoes, if I have them
  • plain Greek yogurt or low fat sour cream
Roll it up & eat!
