Trying to prepare quick healthy meals isn’t always easy, if it was fast food restaurants would be in trouble. Unlike what many people many think and say, you don’t have to spend a lot of time and money in order to prepare healthy meals. On this blog page I will share recipes that have few ingredients, are quick, and of course are delicious!
Turkey Egg Cups
PAM olive oil spray
12 slices of Lunch Meat (turkey, chicken, or ham)
6 medium eggs
1/4 cup of shredded cheese
Preheat oven for 350 degrees. Spray each part of the muffin pan with the PAM spray. Place lunch meat slices into a muffin pan so they form a cup. At the bottom of the cups place small amounts of cheese. In a bowel whisk the six eggs (I add garlic powder, onion powder, and pepper for flavor). Fill each cup with the whisked eggs. Then bake for 15 minutes. Remove cups from the pan and place on separate plate to cool down. Then enjoy!

This would be a good reciepe to use for leftover salmon. Make a couple extra pieces of salmon at dinner time and put it into wraps for the next day.
Chipotle Fish Tacos
I love tacos, so more ways to make them is AMAZING!
Tuna, Avocado, and Pickled Onion Sandwich
I like the idea of this sandwich because I love tuna! To make a little bit better I would use whole grain not whole wheat and I might sauté the onion instead of pickle them.
Salmon With Mango
Rotisserie Chicken Cobb Salad
To lower fat take out or use less bacon and blue cheese
Buffalo Chicken Cobb Salad
This recipe is low in calories and carbs so it would be a option for lunch if you are having a cheat meal or pasta for dinner
This recipe has chicken, asparagus, and rice. To help make this recipe healthier I would use light mayo and riced cauliflower instead of brown rice.
Pork Chops with Strawberries
This is one of my favorite recipes!!!
Pico De Gallo Quesadilla
This recipe is similar to the salsa chicken recipe and it is yummy!
2 lb of boneless/skinless chicken tenders
2 cups of Pico De Gallo
1 cup of low moisture part skin mozzarella cheese
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
.5 tablespoon of olive oil
6 tortilla shells
6 tablespoons of light ranch
Preheat the oven for 375 degrees. Place chicken in a glass pan and season it with the cumin, black pepper, and garlic powder. Spread the Pico De Gallo over the chicken and cover it with the cheese. Bake in the oven for 35 to 45 minutes. After baking you can either eat it as is or continue to make it a quesadilla.
Spread olive oil on each side of the tortilla shell. Place chicken on half of the tortilla shell and pour 1 tablespoon of ranch over top. Fold the other half of the quesadilla over top of the chicken. Bake for 5 minutes or until tortilla shell is crunchy.
Additional notes: If you want to cut out some of the fat use olive oil spray instead of olive oil and use half the amount of ranch. You can also use low carb tortillas shells to help cut carbs.
