Quick Meal Ideas

Posted on 21 October, 2013 at 12:04 Comments comments (0)








Weeknights got you in a bind?  Need some really super quick dinner ideas?  Here is a go to list when you don't have time to cook:

Quick meal ideas:   

  •  Rotisserie chicken from grocery store,  10 minute brown rice bag, frozen vegetables, salad
  • Veggie pizza (no thick crust, no extra cheese) and salad
  • Make your own whole wheat subs using whole wheat roll, turkey,  1 slice reduced fat cheese, 1 tsp. mayo or mustard (can use more mustard).  Add lettuce and tomato, can even add red pepper strips, grated carrots.
  •  Salad with grilled chicken, turkey or beans on top, whole wheat roll.  Can add a small amount of shredded reduced fat cheese (1/4 cup per serving).    
  •  Eggs for dinner!  Scrambled egg or omelette, whole wheat toast.  Be sure to add veggies to eggs or omelette (spinach, broccoli, mushrooms).  If you use cheese use the reduced fat kind.
  • Frozen Mini cheese ravioli (like Celentano’s) or whole wheat cheese tortellini (in refrigerated section).  Be sure to follow the serving size on label and have with a salad.
  •  Grilled reduced fat cheese on whole wheat bread.  Use cooking spray to cook the grilled cheese.  If you add sliced tomato, even better!  Have with fruit and salad
  •  English muffin pizzas:  toast a whole wheat English muffin.  Add spaghetti sauce, ¼ cup shredded part skim mozzarella cheese, steamed broccoli or peppers or any vegetables (fresh or frozen- just be sure to cook first).  Microwave for 25 seconds.  

Enjoy!
