Just One step…

Food that are easy to keep, dont require much cooking and fills up a hungry stomach quickly!  Bear in mind that there’s not much in terms of nutritional value since they are instant and contains preservatives, etc.  Moderation is the key!

One Step:  JUST ADD HOT WATER

1)  Instant noodles:  Let the noodles sit in the hot water for 3 mins and you have a meal! 

The ones that come in a bowl or cup is more convenient.  If you already have a plastic container as like my starter kit, buy those in the packets because they are cheaper and more environmental friendly. 

I don’t really like the taste and texture of the commonly found brand Ramen in the US.  Go for Nissin or any other Thai/Chinese/Japanese/Korean brand.  Definitely yummier!  Trust me, I grow up eating instant noodles for a bit.

2)  Flavoured Couscous:  Add hot water and let it sit for 5minutes.  Fluff with a fork. 

The seasonings are included and they taste wonderful; Parmesan cheese, Mediterranean curry, Herbs, etc.  Yummy and low in fat content.

3)  Instant Miso soup mix:  Add hot water and done!  Much like making tea. 

For those of you who are accustomed to drinking clear soup, I find that these help loads especially as a complement to another dish.  The soup makes the quick fix meal a little more complete.

4)  Eggs:  Cook them with hot water  and WA LA!  A good source of protein.

Add soya sauce or any sauce you have!  The good thing about eggs is, you can boil them in advance, put them in the fridge and eat when you want to.  I recommend eating them within 3 days after cooking though. 

 

One Step:  JUST MIX THEM UP

1.)  Fruit and Nuts:  Cut and mix them up into a fruit bowl!  Healthy and full of natural sweetness and protein!

2.)   Tuna Sandwich:  I think this is pretty straight forward.  Bread + tuna sandwich. 

Whenever I go to a KFC or McDonalds or any eatery, if they give free ketchup and mustard or Mayo, I’ll always keep them if I didn’t use them.  Drain the water from the canned tuna and mix it up with any of the sauces that you have to add that extra taste to your tuna sandwich which may have cost you $6 if you buy them in a café.

3.)  Egg Sandwich:  With the remaining bread, you can boil some eggs, mix with mayo or any sauces that you have and make a sandwich!  Add salt and pepper for taste if you don’t have any other condiments.

I’ve learnt to improvise along the way with whatever ingredients I have and I believe you will discover more quick recipes based on your own culture and what’s readily available to you!  Have fun!
