Eating healthy can be difficult, especially when you can’t seem to find the time to cook your meals. Plus, healthy foods may feel bland at times as opposed to junk food. This is why we’ve created a list of 10 healthy and tasty recipes that are also quick and simple to make, so that next time you’re considering ordering in some Uber Eats, you can instead revert to this list and save some cash as well as fuel your body with the right nutrients. 

Spicy Eggs


It can get boring having the same old traditional breakfast every day. Try spicing up your eggs with some sriracha sauce and adding some veggies like spinach, peppers, tomatoes and mushrooms to add some more flavor and nutrients to your breakfast. 

Stir-fry Chicken & Veggies


Cooking can be quite time-consuming, which is why stir-fry is probably the best option for those who wish to eat flavorful and healthy meals but don’t have the time or ingredients to cook for themselves. Stir-fry is quick and requires minimal ingredients. In fact, all you really need is some stir-fry sauce which can be found at any grocery store. Pour about a tablespoon of the sauce on some chicken and chopped-up veggies and you’ve got a quick, delicious and healthy meal.

Couscous Bowl


Here’s another simple yet healthy recipe. Rice can be quite heavy for some, and may even lead to bloating and digesting issues. Couscous can be a great alternative if this is the case for you. Couscous is high in fiber and is great for lowering blood sugar levels as well as cholesterol. All you need is, of course, a pack of couscous along with your choice of veggies and protein. What’s great about this meal is that you can keep switching it up with different toppings and ingredients so that you never get bored!



Wraps are not only healthy and affordable but also very easy to make! All you need is some tortilla, your choice of veggies and protein. If you don’t have the time to cook, some simple ham or turkey slices, cheese and lettuce will do just fine! To ensure the wrap isn’t dry, we recommend some spicy mayo or garlic mayo for the base of the tortilla. 

Roasted Sweet Potato Fries


Though this isn’t a meal in itself, it’s a very healthy simple recipe you can add to any meal to make it more nutritious and tasty. Sweet potatoes are much more nutritious than regular white potatoes, making them a great replacement for your diet. For this, all you need to do is cut up a sweet potato, top it off with some garlic, salt and pepper and throw it in the oven. What’s great about sweet potatoes is that they are already flavourful on their own, so they don’t require much additional seasoning.

Grilled Salmon & Vegetables

Healthy Yet Simple Recipe: Grilled Salmon & Vegetables

This is once again another recipe you can simply toss in the oven, making it a hassle-free meal. Simply spice up the salmon and vegetables with some roasted garlic and pepper seasoning, pop it in the oven, wait 15 minutes and you’re done! Remember to flip over the fish halfway through so it cooks evenly. 


Healthy Yet Simple Recipe: Avo-Toast 

Avocados are great for your health, with vitamins C, E and K along with omega 3, potassium and a load of other nutrients. If you use the same roasted garlic and pepper seasoning mentioned above, you can take your avocado toast to another level! If you don’t have that seasoning, some pepper and chili flakes are also a great addition. 

Minced chicken 

Healthy Yet Simple Recipe: Minced chicken 

As mentioned earlier, stir-fried chicken is a great and simple healthy recipe you can try. However, if you don’t have the time to chop up some chicken, minced chicken is an even easier meal to cook as it naturally separates into smaller pieces on its own and doesn’t require any prior preparation. All you need is some seasoning of your choice which you can experiment with each time. 

Grilled Italian Sausages

Healthy Yet Simple Recipe: Grilled Italian Sausages

Sausages are perhaps even easier to cook than minced chicken as they have their own flavors and doesn’t require much additional seasoning! Although sausages can be high in sodium, eating it in moderation is completely fine. As long as you accompany it with some broccoli or any other veggie of your choice, this can make for a simple yet delicious meal. 


Healthy Yet Simple Recipe: Pasta

Next time you’re considering making instant noodles, try pasta instead. Both undergo the same process of needing to be boiled in water first, however, one is significantly healthier than the other. Instant noodles are filled with preservatives and sodium, whereas pasta sauces are typically made of real vegetable paste, making it a much healthier alternative that takes the same amount of time to make.
