6 “Minute Meals” For Busy People

Last week, I gave you some KB and BW – based, 20-minutes-or-less workouts for busy people (in a few different posts/emails, and in my new Kettlebell Challenge Workouts program …)

Then, yesterday, my nutrition expert friend Nick Pineault helped us out with some killer healthy snack ideas for busy people

And now, today, we’re going to wrap up the “fitness for busy people” theme with some quick, easy, satisfying, and delicious “three-ingredient trio” ideas for full-on meals.

Each includes a healthy protein, carbohydrate, and fat source – and makes for the perfect balanced breakfast, lunch, or dinner.


A couple of quick notes before we get to ‘em:

  • I am essentially a non-cook – and even I can put these together – so, no excuses :)
  • I have put down a portion size “range” – this is going to vary depending on your specific goals and caloric needs – but the RATIOS of each food item should stay roughly the same for best results.


6 “Minute Meals” For Busy People

1 -

Egg(s) (1-2)
Corn tortilla (1-2)
Avocado (about 1/3-1/2 of one whole)

No matter how you cook them, eggs are an excellent protein choice. This is one of my favorite simple and healthy breakfast standbys.

2 -

Cottage Cheese (1/2-1 cup)
Apple (1-2)
Peanut Butter (1-2 tbsp.)

Cottage cheese is a healthy, low-fat protein. Keep a container in the fridge.

3 -

Turkey (3-5 oz.)
Sprouted Grain Bread (1-2 slice(s))
Avocado (about 1/3-1/2 of one whole)

A simple turkey sandwich is a healthy “brown bag” lunch.

4 -

Chicken (3-5 oz.)
Black Beans (1/2-1 cup)
Avocado (about 1/3-1/2 of one whole)

In a lunch rut? Kick it up a little with this fiesta of a meal.

5 -

Chicken (3-5 oz.)
Broccoli (1-2 cups)
Olive Oil (1-2 tbsp.)

Chicken is a good choice for a lean protein. Flavor it with different spices to add variety without adding unnecessary fat or calories.

6 -

Turkey (3-5 oz.)
Brown Rice (1/2 – 1 cup)
Almonds (9-12)

Lean ground turkey is an excellent choice for protein, and it freezes well, too.


AlRIGHT!  There you have six simple “three ingredient trios” that are quick and oh-so-easy for busy people who are trying to eat healthy.

Thanks for reading, and talk soon -
