Snacks and lunches provide the biggest temptation to revert to convenience food. However, it is quite easy to take a little more time in the morning to prepare something nutritious. Easy healthy meals can be simple.
When I am at home on my own, I often make a quick stir fry, and add egg or leftover meat. It only takes a few minutes, and tastes much better than what you could buy at a food stall.
If you have children, and they are attending a party or other social event where commercial food will be served, it is also easy to make an alternative at home, like home-made chips.
Try this simple sweet potato slice, which is great to have on the run, or in children’s lunch boxes.
1 large sweet potato, peeled
250 g feta cheese, crumbled
2 tbsp fresh dill (or 2 tsp dried)
1 cup yogurt
- Preheat oven to 150°C.
- Cut sweet potato into thin slices, and place two layers on the bottom of a large baking dish.
- Bake in the oven while preparing remaining ingredients (approximately 10 minutes).
- Beat the eggs in a large bowl.
- Add the cheese, dill, and yogurt, and mix thoroughly.
- Remove the dish with the sweet potato from the oven, and pour the egg mixture on top of the sweet potato.
- Bake for approximately 40 minutes, or until the egg mixture is firm and cooked. The top will brown slightly.
