You might be tempted to order takeout, curbside pickup, delivery, or go through a drive-thru, when you feel tired or just too lazy to cook. That is okay once in a while.
However, doing it too much not only costs more money, it can also affect your health, both physical and even mental, in a displeasing way. I noticed that in myself.
Therefore, I drastically cut down on restaurant food and now cook pretty much all my meals at home, sometime the day or night before.
But suppose you don’t think of that (hopefully you do), or you lack the energy to cook. You could try these quick meals, with little to no cooking.
It’s cheese in between a tortilla, yet it can also include other ingredients, such as:
- And more, depending on your imagination or creativity.
You just put the ingredients in between your tortillas, cook them in an oiled pan until the tortillas turn slightly golden brown, and enjoy them.
We all know what it is – cheese in between 2 bread slices. You can cook it in butter or oil, depending on your preferences.
Who says you can only make them at breakfast time? I’ve eaten eggs for dinner numerous times. You could prepare:
- Scrambled eggs
- Fried eggs
- Hard boiled eggs
- Even poached eggs
Peanut Butter and Jelly
Such a classic lunch, especially for children (unless they have peanut allergies). I don’t think I need to explain this. You’ve got that “Peanut, Peanut Butter… Jelly” song to guide you through the steps.
On the bright side, you don’t need to cook this – unless you choose to toast your bread.
Tuna or Chicken Salad
The same technique resembles that of PB & J – except that you mix canned tuna or chicken with mayonnaise or any other fat you prefer. You could also include:
- And more
You save yourself a lot when you prepare these “fast food” items. At least you know what went in them. Plus, you have more room for creativity, including adding extra ingredients, even if they stray away from traditional ones.
