Hi everyone. I’m new to all this, I’m looking for advice/ideas for healthy meals that are quick to do. Nice to meet you all. 🙂

Depends what you mean by healthy. For me it's lots of healthy vegetables, natural fat and a (mostly) animal protein. Big salads are good at this time of year, so lots of leafy greens, some diced veggies that I like (eg peppers, cucumber, tomato) tossed in an olive oil vinaigrette and then served with a couple of boiled eggs, a steak, ham, a piece of chicken etc. The protein can be cut or torn into pieces and added to the salad, or eaten separately.
If you check out topics, you may find more recipes (it's at the right, or near the bottom of the page on mobile), there are lots of food ideas. This might be a place to start healthunlocked.com/healthye...
Thank you. I just fancy eating better but don’t know where to start. I can be a little fussy too.
Thats where to start. What do you like? What are you fussy about?
(I used to think I didn't like salad, but now I dress it properly in oil, I love it. So stay open minded
Hi Missy84 ,
Has your doctor suggested that you change your diet/type of food? Are you allergic to anything food/drink?
Thank you for replying. No my doctor hasn’t asked me to change, I’ve just been eating conveniently. I need to start looking after myself more.. just have no idea where to start.
What are your favorite type of food/drink?
Pasta or rice dishes, most meats and veg. I seem to cook the same meals all the time. New ones would be very welcome.
Do you like pasta salad?
Are pasta salads healthy? 🤔
I’ve never actually had pasta salad. I’m not a fan of mayonnaise, olive oil or dressings really do I’m not sure how I’d make it seem less dry
Do you like tomato sauce?
Like bolognese sauce? Yes, I like that
Nice to meet you! Really glad you've joined the Healthy eating forum. There are lots of topics and various recipes and meal ideas around, so I'd suggest having a look around and see what interests you.
I think the key to healthy is variety. Try lots of colours and types of food. Don't be scared to put anything together, there are no rules. Seasoning and spices are game changers. Try to avoid processed and sugary foods ie biscuits cakes sweets crisps or anything that comes in a box ready made. Eat mindfully and enjoy it and don't deny yourself a food group or treats that you like on occasion. For ideas I love BBC good food bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/col...
Thank you for this. I do need to stay away from processed foods and 70% of the time I do, I then have days where just one biscuit isn’t enough. Eating mindfully is a good piece of advice, maybe I’ll try and do that. Also thank you for the website. 😊
This is my experience.
I always follow simple meals diet; this will supports to keep my body healthy and also avoid weight gain.
I take spinach recipes, corn recipes, tomato soup and a cup of vegetable rice. Weekly thrice I eat boiled egg.
Do you cook from scratch mostly ? Grill or griddle meat (if you eat meat) instead of frying. As has been suggested, eat mindfully concentrating on the flavours and textures of food.
Get a trial for PlateJoy! That's how I changed my meals. There you can try gluten free or low carb without needing to read a ton of books. Yesterday I had a chicken "alfredo" using zucchini noodles instead of pasta. So good!
Some of their recipes come from food52.
Thank you. I’ve never tried zucchini.
Yeah, you have. Zucchini are courgettes.
Which means zucchini noodles are known as zoodles in US/Australia/NZ/Canada but in the UK they are called courgetti 😂
