Have you got a slow cooker as you can do it in the night before and put it on low or get everything prepped to dump it in Maslow cooker in the morning.

If so there are so many different healthy dishes you can do!

Like chicken and vegetable casserole, veggie chillie (you can make it as spicy or mild as you like) chicken with bbq sauce with added veggies.

Pasta bake is definitely a go to for me! Very quick and easy and there are different sauces you can use to mix it up a bit! ๐Ÿ™‚

Have you got a chopper for veg!? Thatโ€™s a god send. And if youโ€™ve Aldi near you they have electric for sale At ยฃ10 and a manual one. But helps get all the goodness in hidden in mince and other meals etc.

Anything you can fire in the slow cooker. I love mine and use it soooo much. The bonus is throughout the day you can smell it ๐Ÿ˜

I don't know how healthy it is but I can't wait to make this, shown on This Morning, today.

I love a sweet curry and she said it only takes 20 minutes and it can be frozen, so make a big pot!

Stir fry! Any meat you like, any veg you like. Throw in some noodles & sauce. I prefer just using soya or sweet chilli but many options available. It's quick, easy, healthy & tasty.

I got so excited to tell you about the curry I didn't think to mention the quickest, easiest meal I do. If you have a steamer put loads of new potatoes in bottom pan, loads of veg in middle pan and salmon in the top pan. When serving I am naughty and put loads of butter and grated cheese on my spuds!

If you need more food you can, while that lot is steaming, grill some tomatoes and mushrooms and corn on the cob or even just put in a pan and roast so you don't have to watch too closely.

It is a healthy but tasty meal.
