Chicken/beef/lamb stir fry, 30 mins in prep and cooking. Easiest meal in the world to cook and very healthy.

Omlettes. Really healthy, really quick.

Pasta is the winner here.

For breakfast I do something basic with beans - Beans are rich in fibre.

Stir fry is by far the quickest.

Boil the kettle and put on wok on full heat.

Chop, chilli, garlic and ginger, chicken\beef\port , onion, carrot strips, bell peppers, courgette and green beans, mangetoute or whatever you want.

Oil on pan - add chilli, garlic and ginger, meat and onion quickly and then add the rest.

Add in some chicken stock too and then finish with soy sauce.

Serve with rice or noodles. Noodles takes about 5 mins to cook.

You can mix it up a bit too by adding bean sprouts, broccoli, cashew nuts, pretty much anything.

Fajitas or any other mexican dish takes minutes.

Anything with potatoes will take a long time to cook unless you pre cook them.

Stick salmon, asparagus and big Mushrooms in the oven, only takes 20mins! Can have wholegrain rice with it. Tasty as f**k when you add a bit of teriyaki sauce. Often have a poached egg with it too Thumbs Up

Spaghetti, prawns, rocket and cherry tomatoes.

Cook the spaghetti, throw a handful of prawns on the pan with some garlic and chilli and then mix with the spaghetti along with some rocket, parmasan cheese and cherry tomatoes.

Bit of pepper and some lemon juice if you have it handy - prep and cook 15 mins.

Steak is the tastiest healthy option imo and veryquick. Can buy it in bulk and keep in the freezer, just take one out each morning to defrost. Have sweet potato with it instead of normal spuds. Steam a bit of veg and you have yourself a tasty healthy meal in under 15 mins.

Another one of my favourites is chilli. Get some 95% lean beef/turkey mince fry it up with some kidney beans, tomato passata, onions, chilli powder and some fresh chillis. Boil some wholegrain brown rice and theres another good meal in well under 1/2 an hour.

As mentioned before, stir fry is by far the easiest and if you mix it up with the meat/fish you use it doesn't get too repetitive.

Do this all the time and it's helped me lose 3st in less than a year. I normally add a heap of curry powder in to the chicken stock too, give it a nice singapore noodle like taste.
 
I use frylight spray instead of oil as it's v low in cals and much less waste.
 
 
Thse websites are great for recipes
