5 Super Easy 10 Minute No Measure Healthy Meals

5 Super Easy 10 Minute No Measure Healthy Meals

What I love about autumn, it is a perfect time to enjoy the last of the longer days.  So if you are like me and would rather go for a walk, or a gym class, than be in the kitchen, here are some fabulous, easy, healthy recipes, with no measuring required.

To make it even easier for you, I have photographed the ingredients, so you know exactly what to purchase, then provided an after photo.

1. Mango Salad

Chop up all ingredients - Avocado, Spring Onions, Cherry Tomatoes, Cucumber, Mangos, and Beans.  Add to spinach with your favourite dressing.  Have on it's own, or with toasted pine nuts.  For a larger meal, purchase a cooked chicken as chicken and mango salad goes well together.

The Mango salad is delicious and full of flavour on it's own, but toasted pine nuts or seeds are great for some crunch.  

Vegetarian option: serve with some fried tofu or halloumi cheese, a Greek cheese which is always handy to keep in the fridge.

For a larger meal, purchase a cooked chicken, (keeps it simple), as chicken and mango salad goes well together.

2. Chicken Stir Fry

Super easy and healthy.  In a large wok, heat some coconut oil.  When wok is extremely hot, add chicken and keep stirring.  You can cook the chicken in batches, but if you are like me and time poor, throw the lot in.  When chicken almost cooked (approx. 5 min), throw in chopped broccolini.  Stir fry for a minute, then toss in bag of vegetable superfoods.  Cook for another minute, toss in toasted sesame and pumpkin seeds and some soy sauce.  Go easy on the soy, as you can easily add more later, but can't take out.  Super easy and healthy, as you can see below.

Replace chicken with tofu if you would like a vegetarian option.

4. Warm Sweet Potato and Rice Salad

Before you head off for a walk, chop and roast the sweet potato.  Allow to cook while you are exercising.

When you arrive home, remove sweet potato from oven and allow to cool.  Toast the pine nuts and cook rice in microwave for 90 seconds.  Chop tomatoes, toss ingredients into bowl and enjoy.  I use a touch of the oil from the goats cheese as a dressing.

5. Super Easy Walnut and Beetroot Salad

Walnuts and beetroot always go well together.  I activate my walnuts to make them even healthier.  When activating, I do a large bag full, so they are always on hand when required.

This salad simply takes 1 minute to make.  Place lettuce in bowl.  Add Beetroot, and I simply chop beetroot in the bowl.  Sprinkle with walnuts, add dressing, toss and serve.

A fabulous recipe when you have unexpected guests arrive. Beetroot is always handy to have on hand.  If getting near use by date, throw in a smoothie.
