I love food and love to eat. Let’s get those things straight.
What I do love most about food is if the food is easy to make, can be done in no time, is delicious, and doesn’t cost a lot of money to create. Plus, the food has to healthy. I always tell myself even my wife that if a meal can be made in less than 10 or 15 minutes and they taste great, then, why in the world should we try to make something that’s equally delicious but takes an hour to make.
Of course, I also know that some great-tasting meals cannot be made in 15 minutes. But in general, what I am saying is that there is a ton of meals out there that can be made in 15 minutes.
My wife loves making these kinds of meals. What’s not to love? She gets to cook fast and feed us with so yummy and healthy meals, too. If the food she prepares gets devoured in no time, then, she can easily make it again and not stress about it.
Over the past couple of months, my wife has managed to find and cook at a lot of the great 15-minute healthy meals listed below. A lot of them are just over-the-top delicious. When you see a lot of these meals, you would think that they are difficult to make because of how they look great, but they’re not.
