Quick and easy
These days everyone is in a hurry; food has become a "git'r done" sort of event. But; busy doesn't mean that you need to skimp on nutrition. Fresh can be very quick and easy. I just about live on salads; I'm obsessed with Arugula so that is the base for most of them. To the wonderful mound of Arugula I add; chopped cabbage, cheese, nuts, tomatoes, carrot or whatever else strikes me. I often pile leftover pasta on top of my salad; love it. This let's me eat a substantial amount of food; so I don't feel ripped off and I feel really healthy. It takes all of 2 minutes to throw together; helps keep you out of the fast food lines and you can't eat this and not feel good about it.
Ahi Tuna sandwiches. Talk about fast and easy. I had a loaf of Rosemary and Olive Oil bread in the freezer; got that out. Threw the ahi in a container with some Goddess dressing for the afternoon and head out for some more Arugula. Making this really great sandwich was again fast and easy. Baked one potato; then tossed the fish into the oven, sliced the bread and mixed some spicey mustard with mayo. When the fish was done I toasted the bread just for a second and put the sandwiches together. They were a big hit and very simple.
One tip for ease of meal preparation and saving money is to plan. If I don't plan a meal, we often eat out due to a lack of planning. So a bit of planning can save you money in the long run.
