What's for dinner?

Such a busy weekend. Too busy for me but I had the day off today to clean up a bit and recover from all the shenanigans. I spent the afternoon with a BFF having a yummy salad and hearing all about her trip to Paris. *sigh* Paris.

She brought me some fantastic little gifts including a little metal Eiffel Tower a naughty French postcard and a lovely tin of orange/anise flavoured bon-bons. She knows me so well!

So what's for dinner tonight?

We were so ready for a healthy meal and we were definitely feeling the lack of vegetables and roughage in our diet this weekend so with that in mind we set off for the grocery store. I didn't really feel like doing a lot of cooking and just wanted something easy, healthy and quick, so here it is. Turkey burgers, coleslaw and beans.

Here's how I make it yummy..It's all about the coleslaw. I buy packaged coleslaw with just shredded green and purple cabbage, and carrots To that I added chopped green onion, chopped granny smith apple, sunflower seeds and sprouted beans. To that I added an organic peanut, tamari salad dressing. Mix and serve. Yummy and healthy too.

I know that this isn't anything fancy or tricky but I always have trouble trying to fix something easy, healthy and fast.

What's your favourite easy, healthy and fast dinner?

Oooh your coleslaw looks awesome!!

Our quick & tasty dinner is usually nachos- although not very healthy in general, very yummy! We put loads of chopped veg on them- peppers, tomatoes, onion, it's not all "bad" stuff...

I love your Paris vignette! My fave quick and tasty is...cut up sausages, fried with tomatoes, garlic, onions and then adding a bag full of spinach - served with penne and parmesan and a glass of red. I'm hungry!

looks yummy!

i like to cook fajita wraps: a red pepper, green pepper, onion and a chipotle pepper. some chili spice and cumin. then i add some chicken.

let it all steam for a bit in the covered frying pan... add the wrap on top to steam for a few secs.

quick, and so far, healthy. i like to ADD grated cheese and a bit of sour cream then wrap it all up. yummm.

that's my quickie meal!

I'm married to a man who doesn't do "healthy". I also grew up in the South and we like deep fried goodness and cooking in bacon grease. I pre-make meatballs and freeze them, so I'd have to say my quick, easy meal is spaghetti with meatballs.
