    Seeing that a lot of people lead hectic and busy lifestyles they often don't have time to cook at night, however there are plenty of quick and nutritionally balanced meals around which are also easy to prepare. :D

    This thread is for people to post any quick meal-ideas that they have floating around.

    Thai green curry (serves 3-4 people)...

    Ingredients:

    1x pack of boneless and skinless chicken thighs
    2x onions
    3x cloves of garlic (chopped and crushed)
    400ml Blue dragon light coconut milk
    2x teaspoons thai green curry paste
    1-2 Bayleaves
    500g basmati long-grain rice (pilau rice is also good)

    Preparation time: 15 minutes (assuming that the chicken has been defrosted)

    Errrm well that qualifies to come under the 'quick' criteria however I was more onto something that has to be cooked from scratch. :001_tt2:

    Healthy "food" isnt actualy real food...

    I mean, bread with seeds = NOT FOOD

    fruit = NOT PUDDING.

    Ham with spices = NOT HAM

    real food:
    bacon
    supernoodles
    takeaways

    you get the idea :
    im right - ask anyone my age :)

    It doesn;t specifically have to be a health food :p A meal should have fibre, carbohydrates and protein and should be low in sugars and fat especially saturated fat :)

    It's easy to make meals that are tasty as well as healthy :)

    Curry is real food! :001_tt2:

    I certainly don't mean living off a diet of seeds and berries, however as Akai-chan has said it's very easy to cook meals that are low in salt, sugar and saturated fats. :D

    I seem to do it pretty well :p My diet is generally

    Breakfast - Porridge or scrambled eggs (not often though, just for a treat)
    I usually don't have lunch cos porridge fills me up for the day
    Dinner - Usually soup or meat stew, though it can be anything from spaghetti bolognaise to fajitas if I'm at my boyfriends.

    For snacks I always have a box of peeled carrots in the fridge because they're delicious ^_^

    Is any part of that not tasty?

    Peace
