I'm a soup girl, with practice, it is possible to make soup that won't feed a small army (been there done that) My favourite is butternut squash cooked in either chicken or vegetable stock with an onion and a potato, with a little cumin and coriander powder and garlic then whizzed with a stick blender. Serve with a roll and a slice of cheese or ham (added protein) and you have a meal.

I also adore the George Foreman grill for one (I have a small one) A chicken berast, some thickly sliced zucchini, red pepper, onion all cooked on the George and then drizzled with a teaspoon of extra vigin olive oil and a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar. I normally cook brown rice, couscous, quinoa or pasta to go with this, as I follow a low GI plan and normally have just returned from a workout and only carbs will do! The veg is also good cold the next day if you over do it on the quantities!

try to get a small casserole, so you know you do less...

and then... many possibilities...

veggies, all sorts with or without meat
noodles, all sorts with our without meat
cutlets/schnitzel with cream and mushrooms or onions or bell pepper
mix about one cup chili sauce with one cup cream covering some pieces of chicken breasts (or equally less), 375F 45min

oh.. there are soo many varations...

LiGruess cara ~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

This is the quickest, easiest, tastiest, healthy meal I have ever found to eat: Slammin' Blackened Salmon. My boyfriend goes nuts for it and I really like it now too - and I used to HATE salmon. I make it with brown rice and green beans.

I'm always looking for quick, tasty, healthy meals so I will revisit this thread a lot!
