A lot of us who were lucky enough to grow up eating home-cooked family meals together – shout out Mom and Dad! – grew up accustomed to a pretty common formula at the dinner table: meat-vegetable-starch. And, while often quite hearty and genuinely nourishing, these types of sit-down meals might not be cutting it for us these days, as busy adults who need quick, healthy, and satisfying meals – and a good variety of them too. Read on for a few tips on keeping things quick and easy in the kitchen, without compromising on flavour or balance, and check out the free 20-minute meal guide inside to kick-start your healthy eating journey!
Save time by choosing lower-effort proteins that don’t require preparing from raw, and save the slow-cooking for when you have the time. Some of the lowest-effort proteins include eggs (hard-boiled, especially if made ahead), tinned fish like tuna and salmon, tofu, frozen cooked shrimp, and canned legumes like chickpeas and black beans.
These recipes prove that eating healthier can actually be super delicious and easy – you just need to know where to start! Inside, you’ll find 20 recipes that are flavourful, healthy, and take no longer than 20 minutes to make, start to finish.

Keep a fun variety of spices, herbs, and condiments on deck. These flavour boosters are often the keys to taking what might otherwise be a bland meal to the next level. And by mixing up which fresh herbs you buy week to week, and how you combine your seasonings, you can make completely new-tasting meals out of similar base recipes – allowing you to keep a steady supply of convenient protein and pantry staples on rotation.
Make produce a big part of (most) meals. By ensuring you prioritize filling up at least half of your plate with fruit and veggies, and then bringing in well-portioned proteins, carbs, and fats to keep you full and energized, you’ll find yourself with a well-balanced meal every time.
Remember: not every meal has to be picture-perfect. It's totally cool if your phone always eats first, and you want to take those extra few minutes to make sure your plating is perfect, whether for a snapshot or for your own enjoyment, but truly… some of the ugliest foods are the best tasting foods! Don't fuss so much about what's on the outside as what's on the inside – whole nutrients that provide unique benefits to fuel you through your busy day.
