5 Healthy Meals in 5 Minutes or Less

image Yesterday I gave a cooking demonstration to a group of seniors in Sacramento called Heart Healthy Cooking for One.  The recipes were so popular, easy to make, and delicious, that I thought I would share them on my blog! Each recipe takes 5 minutes or less to prepare, so it’s perfect for when you want to whip up a quick and healthy breakfast or lunch for yourself.  There is also a convenient vegetable cooking chart for the microwave at the end. Check them out, in easy printable format: 5 Meals in 5 Minutes or Less.

These recipes are all easily prepared using a George Foreman grill and a microwave.  If you don’t have a George Foreman grill, you can use a skillet on the stove.  But, I highly recommend a George Foreman grill because they are so easy to use!  I just use a small one that costs less than $20 at Walmart or Target.

All of these recipes are very heart healthy.  The characteristics of a heart healthy meal are:

  • Low in fat (especially saturated and trans fat)
  • Low in sodium
  • High in fiber

Heart disease is currently the #1 killer in America. But, 80% of heart disease is preventable through healthy lifestyle choices! So, I hope you enjoy these delicious heart healthy recipes!
