Tips for Easy and Healthy Meals

This is how i start many meals on Delicious & Nutritious My Prep Delivery. Saute diced onion, bell pepper in oil until tender. Turn heat down and add the crushed or diced garlic. Continue to saute for three more minutes.

It’s possible to make many different pasta dishes, rice pilafs, soups, chilies, eggplant marinara and other recipes. These flavors are so versatile that you can’t go wrong with them. Even better, you can simply cook pasta, salt and pepper to your liking, and then add a simple green vegetable salad. You can also make rice pilaf by adding rice, water, salt, and pepper to the saute pan.

This is a great method to start a pork or chicken dish. When I cook meat, either lemon juice oder wine is what I use. You can cook this on the stovetop. For example, heat 1 lemon juice and chicken breast tenders (salted with pepper, salt, and sprinkled oregano, rosemary, or both) to a pan. Cover the pan and turn heat up until bubbling. Reduce heat to simmer for 5-10minutes. Cover the pan and heat up to brown. Tip – Make sure you have plenty of liquid to start with. The oil doesn’t need be excessive, but it is important to not skimp on the quality. This is where the wine and lemon help, as well as adding a lot more flavor. Pour the juice over the chicken, and you are ready to serve.

These are just a couple of examples of a half-hour dinner. For the main course, I almost always prepare a simple, fresh green salad. It takes about 5-10 minutes to make and can be done while your pasta or rice is cooking. You can make a simple dressing with olive oil or red wine vinegar and a small amount of mustard.

I have onions, bells peppers (with garlic bulbs), fresh carrots (with fresh vegetables), pasta, rice and beans, olive oil, cheaper cooking oils, red wine vinegar or balsamic vinegar, frozen vegetables (spinach, broccoli, and other herbs and spices) and some dried herbs. These foods have a wonderful shelf-life and can make delicious meals by themselves.

Herbs & Spices that I can’t live with: basil, oregano. rosemary, bay leaves. tarragon. parsley. sage. thyme. celery. seed. paprika. cayenne. red pepper flakes. There are many more, but I get a lot of mileage out of these.
