You know we’re a busy family. Between my son’s sport’s schedule and our work, we have little time left but we make sure, no matter what, we have a healthy meal on the table. So, today I’m sharing my best cooking tips for easy healthy meals.
Cooking Tips For Fast Easy Healthy Meals
My most important tip is planning and trying new recipes, when you do it.
My son is a super picky eater, so I’m always trying new recipes to get his seal of approval.
I’m always picking up on a low sodium/fat pre-made meal for those days when you’ll come home at 7PM and starving to avoid stocking up calories and fat at the drive thru!
The 70/30 rule
I make sure 70% of my food purchases are vegetables, fruits and avoiding at all cost canned, processed foods.
I shop sometimes at two different places, more than once a week to make sure our produce is fresh and looking amazing on our table.
Our produce is usually what’s in season. For example, here is a list that is always on my counter when looking for vegetables and fruits in season in the fall:
Best Cooking Device
It’s important to have a good stove, mini oven & microwave.
Fast usually means, having the right cooking device to help you reach your healthy goals without having to wait two hours get your meal ready.
On busy nights, I usually aim for 30min meals!
Awesome, right? Healthy, Delicious & Fast Meals is the way to go!
That’s why I’ve added the Breville Combi Wave 3-in-1 Microwave to my wish list!
The combination Microwave that Air Fries and is a convection oven. Now available at Best Buy.
This microwave lets you air fry (crunchy fries, brussel sprouts, chicken wings), bake or roast (whole chickens, lasagna, chocolate brownies) or simply microwave with even heat distribution.
The Combi has a 80% quieter soft close door – so no more microwave slams! It’s also 50% quieter while in operation. Clever touches like child lock & mute buttons mean less beeps/bumps/clangs and more pops, bites and crunches!
Intuititively easy presets at your fingertips: Smart Cook, Smart Reheat & Smart Defrost

Two weeks ago I tried a new sweet potato soup recipe and I know that would have been a lot easier if I had the Breville Combi Wave.
