7 ONE MINUTE Meal Ideas for Busy People

When I’m TRULY having a busy day, I barely have time to stop to eat at ALL, let alone take the typical amount of time – maybe 30 minutes? – to whip something up to eat in the kitchen.

Luckily, my healthy eating approach doesn’t have to suffer – because I have my Minute Meal list ready at all times :)

Today, I have 7 meals ideas for you that will take ONE MINUTE or less to prepare (these are just a little sample BTW – you’ll find a list of over 30 more in my 5 Minute Fat Loss course HERE).

These are 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.

Also important to note – I have put down a portion size “range” for each … 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.

Without further ado -

7 “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 -

Protein Powder (1-2 oz)
Oatmeal (1/2-3/4 cup)
Macadamia Nuts (3-5)

Adding protein powder to your oatmeal is an easy way to get protein into your breakfast


3 -

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.

4 -

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.

5 -

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.

6 -

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.

7 -

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.

SO – there you have seven simple “three ingredient trios” that are quick and oh-so-easy for busy people who are trying to eat healthy.
