3 Easy and Healthy Recipes for Busy People

Avocado Toast

easy and healthy recipes

All you need for this delicious breakfast — which is chock-full of Vitamin C and Vitamin B-6 — is whole grain bread, a ripe avocado and a bit of seasoning. You could also get fancy and top it with an over-easy egg, some chopped up tomatoes or toasted pine nuts, but let’s not get crazy. These are healthy recipes for busy people who don’t exactly have a ton of time on their hands, after all.

Put it on the counter:

  • 2 pieces of whole grain bread
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Make it: Cut the avocado into two halves. Using a spoon, scoop half of it into a small bowl. Mash the avocado with a fork, adding salt and pepper to taste. Mash harder if you have a case of the Mondays. Put two pieces of whole grain bread in the toaster. Once toasted to your liking, top with your avocado spread and enjoy!

Tip: To keep the other half of the avocado fresh, return the pit to the center, cover with saran wrap, and store in the fridge.

A Simple Wrap

easy and healthy recipes

Let’s face it, we’ve all had those days where we get so wrapped up in our busy schedules that we forget to eat. We know skipping meals can zap us of energy and wreak havoc on our metabolism, but we shrug it off and say we’ll do better tomorrow. Whether it takes a Google reminder, a post-it note or a daily alarm on your phone, try to remind yourself every day of the week to take a few minutes off to enjoy an easy healthy meal. This wrap is great for an afternoon pick-me-up or a light lunch.

Put it on the counter:

  • Tortilla
  • Deli Turkey
  • Romaine Lettuce
  • Cheddar Cheese

Make It: Rinse the lettuce under the kitchen faucet. Shake any excess water and pat down with a paper towel. Chop the lettuce lengthwise and place it on top of the tortilla with a few slices of deli turkey and cheddar cheese. Salt and pepper to taste. Roll and enjoy!
