I usually wouldn't recommend tv dinners for obvious reasons (high sodium, high sat. fat, high in calories, high in preservatives etc.). But there is something called 2 minute meals. Check it out.

-Peanut butter on wheat bread, can add honey, all natural preserves, or sugar free jelly.
-Hard boiled eggs- just boil a dozen at a time, once or twice a week. Can eat them whole, or on toast w/ cheese, or in tuna salad, on lettuce salad, or in egg salad.
-Tuna Salad- canned tuna, mayo or miracle whip, diced celery, chopped boiled eggs, can add sweet relish.
-Egg Salad- 6 hard boiled eggs, 2/3C. diced celery, 1/4C miracle whip, 1T mustard, 1/2tsp salt. Great plain or in sandwiches.
-Chicken Salad- 3 C. cubed chicken(canned), 1 C. diced celery, 3 chopped hard boiled eggs, 3 chopped sweet pickles, mayonaise. Eat it plain, on lettuce, or in sandwiches.
-Microwaved Omelettes- microwave eggs, then add salsa & cottage cheese &/or american, can add ham or chicken if desired. Can also eat on toast or tortilla.
-Can or Hormel Chili & can of chicken, mixed together & microwaved.(good for bulking)
-Microwaved Fish- (haven't tried this one yet), lay fish filets in large bowl, sprinkle w/ lemon juice, seafood seasonings, and melted butter. Cover w/ waxed paper or saran wrap and cook for about 3-4 minutes or until fillets start to flake.
-Can of spaghetti & meat balls, add cottage cheese after heating(another dirty one for bulking )
-Grill a bunch of chicken breasts on Sunday, reheat one of them every day. Just add favorite seasoning or BBQ sauce.
-Cottage cheese w/ splenda & cinnamon, can add milk, oatmeal(raw or cooked), &/or protein powder. Could also use fruit instead of cinnamon.
-Shakes- Include any combo of the following: skim milk, powdered milk, protein powder, cottage cheese, yogurt, eggs or pasteurized egg whites or microwaved eggs, oats, bananas, berries, honey, splenda, chocolate syrup, cinnamon, peanut butter, flax seeds, flax oil, extra light olive oil, ice, water.
-Salsa & Cottage Cheese Dip, eat w/ baked tortilla chips
-Peanut butter on celery
-Protein powder mixed w/ sugar free pudding
-Can of baked beans & glass of skim milk
-Low fat string cheese
-You can also put cottage cheese on top of baked potatos.
-Stew- must use a crock pot, but it's very easy. I use cubed beef, but could probly use chicken or turkey. Just toss it in the pot w/ all sorts of veggies: green beans, corn, peas, kidney beans, potatoes, carrots, celery, barley, etc. Then add stew seasoning(comes in packets). Takes a while to cook. Put it in there in the morning on low, eat it for lunch or supper. Also, just reheat it in the microwave if you have left-overs and it's as good as fresh.
-Salad- I try to eat a good salad at least a few times a week because I don't usually eat enough veggies. Use fresh spinach leaves & dark green lettuce. Can add broccolli, carrots, colliflour, kidney beans, cucumber slices, any veggie you want. Then add a couple sliced hard boiled eggs. Some kind of meat: chicken, turkey, tuna, hamburger, etc. Can also add cottage cheese or other shredded cheese. Then use a good dressing, hopefully something not too fatty. It makes a really good, healthy meal. Doesn't take too long if you have all the stuff in your fridge.
**If at all possible, make things in large quantities and store them in the fridge so you can eat them all week. It makes things SO much easier.

definitely PB on wheat bread, it's perfect on the go, I took it in the car tonight lol I LOVED IT.
Also, soft boiled eggs are quick cuz u can make as many as u want in a pot. boil for 6 min. Don't spend time peeling off the shell just crack it in HALF and use a teaspoon to eat out the inside. i did that today too lol.

I hate boiled eggs (more or less cooked) and I dont digest egg red weell, so thats what I do: put egg whites smashed in a frying pan with a few butter and salt. Do not fry the butter. 5 minutes and its ready. Sidenote: the pan is a PITA to wash afterwardsOriginally Posted by cable626
