Easy Peasy

Many people don’t realize how easy healthy eating really can be. A lot of times, families or teenagers will opt for fast food, anything they can pick up pre-packaged, frozen meals, and more foods that aren’t necessarily giving you the best nutrition.


Now, once in a while if you really have no time, it can be okay. However, not all meals are super in-depth and are actually so simple. I wanted to show some examples of how easy healthy eating really can be!


Last night I had an inspection at the new house I’m moving into (in October with my mom) and we didn’t get home till after 8 pm. Usually, I like to eat dinner a little beforehand so we whipped up something quick and easy. We thawed out some frozen chicken and threw them on the George Foreman.


I washed some potatoes and threw them into the microwave while the chicken cooked.


Lastly, I washed and sliced some zucchini and put them in a pan with a little bit of oil and sautéed them with garlic, salt, and pepper.


Just sit back and wait for everything to cook, and you’re done! Literally took less than 10 minutes.


Simple and Delicious Smile


In need of a simple snack? Homemade pita chips are SO easy and just take minutes to prepare and bake! They’re also healthier than store bought, and nothings better than homemade.

First you take Whole Wheat Pita bread.


Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees.


Take 4 pitas and cut them in half, then half again, then little triangles. (I used a pizza cutter)





To make them thinner, open them as shown above.

Next, mix together:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. Parsley
  • 1/2 tsp. Basil
  • 1/2 tsp. Garlic  
  • IMG_2351

You can use any spices you like, but this is what I use!

Place pita slices on a baking sheet after spraying with cooking spray.


Brush the oil mixture on the pitas and place them in the oven.

Cook for 4-6 minutes until crispy like chips. Take out & let cool. Enjoy with some dip such as hummus! Super healthy and tasty.

Have a terrific Tuesday!


What’s your go to healthy yet easy meal?

  4. This post is awesome! I think it’s so true that people think that eating healthy is way more work, when it can really be much easier than eating junk. And you feel so much better!! I’ve never made homemade pita chips but I’m gonna have to try it soon.
