Spend Less Time Cooking and More Time Enjoying this Holiday Season

Quick healthy meals

We love the holiday season and the time with friends and family, but this time of year can also be busy and stressful.

To help, I’ve rounded up some of my quickest meals for your busiest days, so your holidays can be merry and bright.

1. Creamy Cannellini Spinach Pasta

Creamy Vegan Pasta

This delicious, rich, and creamy vegan pasta dish is super satisfying, exceptionally nutritious, and takes less than 20 minutes to make.

2. Mediterranean Wrap

Have a really busy day? These wraps can be made in almost less time than it takes to order pizza!

3. Loaded Sweet Potatoes

It does take at about 45 minutes to bake the sweet potatoes, but this is not hands-on time, so they can be baking while you are doing something else, like building a snowman.

4. The Great Burrito

And yet another delicious excuse to eat more guacamole.

5. Sesame Stir-Fry

When I am busy and haven’t planned ahead, stir-fry is usually my quick, go-to meal. This one is especially delicious.

6. Power Salad

Packed with protein, healthy fat, fiber, and an abundance of other nutrients, this power salad is so filling and nutritious it is a satisfying meal in itself. Top with one of my luscious and slimming salad dressings.
