No One is Too Busy for These Recipes!


We’ve all been there…maybe some of us are there literally every night. You leave work – starving – only to come to the terrible realization that there is nothing, absolutely nothing waiting for you at home. Except maybe an equally starving family. Frozen pizza, boxed dinners loaded with preservatives and unsavory ingredients, take out – all these choices not only thrash your health and fitness goals, but your wallet! These super simple, few-ingredient recipes will save you time and money while satisfying your tastebuds – you might want to bookmark this one.

Black Bean Soup

• 2 cans black beans (rinsed)
• 1 cup chicken broth
• 1 can diced tomatoes

Combine all ingredients in a pot, bring to a boil, simmer for 10 minutes. Blend in a blender and serve. Maybe add some protein by tossing in some shredded chicken!

Freezer Fajitas

Literally just combine chicken breasts, peppers, onion, garlic, lime, honey and some seasonings into a bag. Freeze until you need it! When ready to cook, thaw overnight in the refrigerator and cook in a pan on the stovetop for 10-15 minutes until chicken is cooked through.

Stuffed Mushroom Caps

Scrape the gills out of 2 portabella mushroom caps. Fill the cap with salsa. Lightly sprinkle pine nuts and parmesan cheese over the top. Bake at 400 for 10-12 minutes or until mushrooms are warmed through and pine nuts are toasted.

Foil Packet Dinner

This one is so easy to customize and make your own, but here’s a good start:
On a sheet of foil, top some asparagus with cod or salmon, sprinkle with your favorite seasonings, top with mushrooms, diced onions, and a squeeze of lemon. Wrap up the foil packet and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

Cauliflower Fried Rice

This is all the rage right now! And it’s even easier now that stores sell “Riced Cauliflower” (even at Costco!) and all kinds of prepped-for-you fresh vegetables. Grab some riced cauliflower, cut up broccoli florets, grated carrots, and frozen peas and corn! Voila. Dinner in minutes.

Rancher’s Omelet

Sauté some onions and diced red peppers until lightly browned. Add 3 oz cooked/chopped turkey sausage, a little diced tomato, and garlic. Sauté 1 minute. Use this is the filling for a regular omelet (from eggs or egg beaters) with a slice of Havarti cheese. Top omelet with salsa. YUM!
