      Homemade Applesauce:
      Slice and core apples, peel some, or leave the peels on.  Boil down the apples in a small saucepan with some cinnamon, and the tiniest pinch of nutmeg.  And voala! Enjoy.

      I like fast food. It's very convenience for my busy life. a hamburger, some bread with a cup of milk or instant noodle with some eggs are often used in my lunches.

    Put a boneless, skinless chicken breast in the center of a square of foil. Top with potato, onion and bell pepper slices. Top with some salsa (like 1/2 cup), seal up the foil packet and toss in the oven or pop on the grill. 5 minutes prep and close to zero cleanup and no added fats. smile Oh, and really tasty too!

    My breakfast rule is that I can cook it in 15 mins or less. An omelet is pretty quick. I use extra virgin olive oil, which is very healthy. Using only egg whites (organic) lowers the calories. I fill it with spinach and other veggies that are in my fridge.

    So, a quick meal for me is essentially an omelet, a side of fruit and a low-glycemic, whole grain gluten-free carb.

    Salads are also a quick option. I love my george foreman grill and will grill a chicken breast, slice it and put it on a big salad.

    As i write this, I'm eating a pretty junky dinner lol. Homemade hash browns and chocolate soy milk. (Not healthy, but fairly quick!) big_smile

      Suggestion/consider this..
      Substitute virgin olive oil with 0 calorie cooking spray with
      canola oil. Thats even healthier. And, substitute egg beaters
      for your omelet.. yumm wink.

    My friend swears by simply getting a teacup, putting about a teaspoon of water in the bottom of it, followed by some chopped bacon and a little finely chopped onion. He then breaks a raw egg on top of this, a pinch of salt and pepper, and pops it into the microwave for about 2 minutes. Remove the cup from the microwave and run a knife around the edge of the cooked egg before tipping this out on to a plate and serving, (if you grease the teacup with a little olive oil first, running the knife around the edge of the cooked egg should not be necessary). Total time from start to finish, (including preparation) is probably less than 5 minutes, Yummy!

    Guacamole on toast.

    Avocado, chopped tomato and onion, lemon juice and sea salt thrown in a bowl and mixed, while the toast toasts.

    Takes about five minutes. Mmmmm

    If you read my hub on how to make your own homemade tomato sauce and then how to can it you will have pre-made healthy sauce on hand.  Heat the sauce in a pan.  Boil water and cook your favorite pasta in 8-10 minutes.  I would have also said to toast garlic bread but you said no butter.  But you could have made garlic bread drizzled with olive oil infused with garlic.  All in less than 15 minutes. Enjoy! Dee

    Ramen noodles with the broth cooked down (don't use all of the packet of seasoning -- too much sodium).
    Delicious with meatballs (turkey meatballs ok) from the freezer.
    My hubby is a purest and will not put in any veggies, but I like to add some spinach, green pepper, celery, shredded carrots, maybe some onions and mushrooms (but only if I'm feeling really ambitious!).

    This is my recipe.

    Make pancakes without oil.
    Rice flour, wheat flour, jowar flour, and finger millet flour on equal quantity of 1 cup each. Add one large onion finely chopped, 2 chillies finely chopped, and 1 tbs.coriander leaves chopped. Mix to a smooth consistency with water, salt and 1 tbspoon milk powder, and make pancakes without oil. A very healthy and nutritious breakfast in India. For non-vegetarians, 1 beaten egg too can be added to the mixture.

    I prepare my fastest meal by toasting some bread and cutting up my favorite leafy vegetables. Then I place the vegetables is in a blender with water together with my favorite spices. I cook it all for 2 minutes to create a delicious soup with bread and butter.
