Advantages: Quick and Easy
Disadvantages: Not always healthy!
I am a student and also work part time, so most of the spare time i do have is spent studying or socialising so i don't take a huge amount of time in preparing meals and opt for quick and easy food, such as:
1. Cheese Toasties
I usually have this when i want something stodgy and filling.
thick slice of cheese
2 x slices bread
half a small onion
I simply place the cheese inbetween the bread and sprinkle the onion on top. I then put it into the sandwich grill for 2-3 minutes until the cheese is completely melted.
2. Actifry Chips
I love my actifry! It's so quick and easy and produces such high quality chips within 20 minutes or so.
1 large potato
1 teaspoon oil
Sprinkle of salt
Cut potato into slices and put into the actifry. Sprinkle oil evenly and turn on actify, set timer to 18 minutes and wait until timer goes off. Check chips are cooked thoroughly and put onto a plate. Sprinkle small amount of salt evenly and add blob of ketchup onto the side of the plate for dipping.
I'm sure everyone has heard of these, my favourite flavour is the chicken ones. Prep time is around 5/6 minutes.
4. Beans on toast
Very simple and quick meal; half a tin of heinz beans, 1 slice bread. Prep time around 5-6 mins and it's very filling and tasty.
5. A tin of soup
Mainly chicken or vegetable, and i like the Heinz brand of soup best. Prep time 3-4 minutes.
6. Fruit salad
If i'm not hungry i usually just chop up a banana and a bit of pineapple and munch on that. Prep time depends on if the pineapple has been pre-cut as it does take a while to cut pineapple up.
- Chinese, favourite dish Salt and Chilli prawns. (battered king prawns)
- Pizza, favourite flavour al pino.
- Fish and Chips (very rare though due to having an actifry), i usually have a small portion.
- McDonalds saver menu chicken burger and chips
8. Microwave meals
- Weightwatchers curry/lasagne
- Fish pie
- Microwaveable wraps
9. Stuff from the deli counter at tesco/sainsburys
- Pre cooked chicken legs
Summary: Quick and easy
