5 Easy Meals In Under 30 Minutes
Not so hypothetical situation: You want to get a little healthier and lose a few LBS before the summer - simple, right? Then quarantine happens, gyms are closed, you're home all day with the kids, and it's just easier to make nuggets and KD than an elaborate 3-course meal that they won't even eat! Super relatable situation, and we’ve ALL been there!
So to help you out a bit, we took our most favorited recipes ready in under 35 minutes, and narrowed them down to our TOP 5! Read on for the full breakdown!
PARMESAN CHICKEN TENDERS!
Diet Type: Keto
This recipe has been at the top of our list for a while, it’s a GREAT alternative to your fav fast food chicken nuggets, it’s ready in 30 minutes, it’s KETO friendly, and kids looove it. We seriously enjoy this recipe because it’s a fun activity to get the whole family involved, and it’s only 6 ingredients- what’s not to love here?!
HIGH PROTEIN CHOCOLATE CHIP PANCAKES!
Diet Type: Vegan
Yep, we totally get that you can buy dry pancake mix at any grocery store for a few dollars, so what makes ours different? First off, you know exactly what ingredients are going in, and where they’re coming from. Secondly, depending on your Ultimate Fitness Goal, this recipe is tailored to you, whether you’re looking to lose weight, gain weight, or maintain your weight! And lastly, this delicious treat is high in protein, so it’s great for repairing and rebuilding muscles after working out!
HEALTHY CHICKEN ALFREDO!
Diet Type: Standard
Eating healthy doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice the foods that you love! Eating healthy means making compromises and substitutions in order to fuel your mind, body, and soul. Our HEALTHY Chicken Alfredo is exactly that- A healthy spin on everyone’s favorite pasta dish! Chicken Alfredo has a bad rep for being high in saturated fats (the bad kind), so with our minor modifications, you can enjoy this restaurant quality recipe at home, and skip the guilt. The best part? Substituting 1-2 items can take this meal from the standard meal plan, to the vegetarian & vegan meal plans!
EGG, TOFURKEY AND CHEESE MUFFINS!
Diet Type: Vegetarian
Move over toast, a new breakfast item is in town- and it’s here to stay. Whether you’re working from home or still heading out the door on the daily, this recipe is PERFECT for busy women on the go. You can make the egg muffins in bulk, freeze them, and have them for breakfast or snacks in between meals. They’ve got protein, fibre, good fats, and everything you need to smash through your day! The recipe is easily adaptable to your fav veggies or cheeses, if you want to mix things up, and only takes 30 mins to make!
NO-BAKE MINT CHOCOLATE PROTEIN BARS!
Diet Type: Standard
Though this is more of a snack than a meal, our Mint Chocolate Bars are definitely a showstopper. We’re not sure which part we like more, the fact that you don’t need an oven to make them, that they’re high in protein, or that the recipe is only 7 ingredients?! Obviously we’re joking, our fav part is mostly that they’re chocolate, and guilt-free. These make a great snack for moms who need a little spoiling, and would go great with that glass of wine waiting to be poured!
