Healthy Food Recipes: 10 Healthy Meals You Can Cook in 10 Minutes

 If you have 10 minutes to sit and scroll through social media, you sure have 10 minutes to make a healthy meal at home!

1. Peach Cobbler Oatmeal

Instead of using flavoured oatmeal packets, try this oatmeal that tastes like a cobbler. It will satisfy your sweet tooth so well with fresh peaches, chopped pecans or your nut of choice, and cinnamon that you may find yourself making it for dessert.

2. Simple Poached Egg and Avocado Toast

Avocado toast is popular, but adding a poached egg elevates it to new heights and completes the nutritional trifecta of protein, fats, and carbohydrates. It looks and tastes fancy with parmesan cheese and fresh herbs sprinkled on top.

3. Oatmeal Blueberry Yogurt Pancakes

It doesn't take long to make a stack of homemade flapjacks. Thanks to bananas, oats, vanilla, and, of course, blueberries, these are high-protein and gluten-free, but they still taste amazing and fluffy.

4. Cheddar-Garlic Grits with Fried Eggs.

Cheesy grits, a Southern classic, don't have to be a total fat and calorie bomb. Instead of milk, use water and leave out the butter. However, keep the cheddar: The 2 tablespoons per serving keep the dish gooey and rich while also providing nearly 10% of your daily calcium needs.

Then, for extra staying power, add eggs, chopped chives for a slightly oniony flavour, and garlic, which enhances the overall flavour.

5. Hot Quinoa Cereal

Quinoa, as delicious as it is, takes some time to prepare. While some have claimed that it can be nuked, most microwaves take longer than 10 minutes to do so. Quinoa flakes, which are similar to oats but contain all of the essential amino acids, can be prepared quickly.

Cook them with dried berries in your favourite milk, then top with nuts, nut butter, seeds, and fresh fruit.

6. Scrambled Tofu

Tofu is anything but bland when cooked properly, and this version has as much protein as a scrambled egg. Combine cheesy nutritional yeast, turmeric, cumin, and paprika with the vegan staple (buy smoked for even more flavor). It will appeal to egg lovers as well.

7. Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

This healthy, autumn-inspired oatmeal gets its pie-like flavor from pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, and vanilla. A sprinkling of dried cranberries adds natural sweetness.

8. Open-Faced Sandwiches with Ricotta, Arugula, and Fried Egg

A breakfast sandwich can be so much more than a smashed bacon, egg, and cheese eaten behind the wheel. Yes, this one calls for a fork and knife, but it’s worth it.

Toasted bread is topped with spicy arugula, a good source of vitamin K, which helps your blood clot. Then add an egg, salty ricotta — it has more protein than cottage cheese — Parmesan, and thyme. It’s a sandwich like no other.

9. Omelet in a Mug

In a microwave-safe mug, combine your favourite breakfast meat (or leave it out if you're vegetarian), salsa, eggs, and cheese. Cook for another 30 to 45 seconds after stirring.

Season with salt and pepper to taste, then top with more cheese. Making breakfast — and cleaning up afterward — has never been simpler.

10. Butternut Squash Ramen Bowl with Rice Noodles, Tofu, and Fresh Pea Shoots

A delicious dinner for one, this noodle bowl has all the flavors of your fave quick-cook noodle cups but none of the icky additives. Rice noodles provide the bulk of this vegetarian-friendly bowl, which uses boxed butternut squash soup as a base for fast cooking.

Pea shoots taste like, well, peas, and are rich in vitamins A and C and folic acid. If you can’t find them, you can use spinach.
