Healthy 'Meals-for-One' for Modern Working Women. (Ready in minutes!)

This list of "Healthy 'Meals-for-One' for Modern Working Women. (Ready in minutes!)" is a great place to start if you are in need of some healthy recipes that are easy to make. If you are like many people across the country, you know what it's like to be short on time when it comes to all the things you have to do in a day. Sometimes we just don't have the time to prepare a healthy meal to eat at work. If that applies to you, take a look at this site, and you will be pleasantly surprised at what you could be eating for lunch this week. Think of all the money you will save on expensive restaurant food.

Just because you are making lunch for one, doesn't mean you have to give up on taste and flavor. The following are just a couple of the recipes you will find on the list; the first recipe is a melted tomato and basil omelet. When you think of lunch, you don't always think of eggs, but eggs can work any time of day for a nice protein dish that is easy to do.

To start finely chop up some tomato and put into a bowl with some shredded cheese, some basil leaves, spring onion and some olive oil. Then heat some oil in a nonstick skillet, and swirl some beaten eggs into the pan. Cook the eggs until done, and then spoon the tomatoes over half of the omelet. Fold the omelet over top of the tomato, and leave for a few seconds, and slice it onto your plate. This healthy lunch recipe can be served with a fresh salad.

The next recipe from the list is a spicy apricot tabbouleh salad with some aubergine. For this healthy lunch recipe, you will need some couscous, harissa (the amount varies depending on just how spicy you like it), some chopped dried apricots, some coriander, chickpeas and some chopped herbs (coriander, parsley, and mint). It's amazing how the addition of these fresh herbs transforms this tasty recipe. You will also need some olive oil, some lemon juice, and an aubergine. Now you will boil some water, and place some couscous into a heatproof bowl. Take the harissa and rub in with your fingers. Stir the apricots in and the ground coriander. Now pour some boiling water over the couscous, cover the bowl, and leave to puff up for approximately five minutes. When the couscous is cooked, you can fluff it up with a fork and stir in the chickpeas, chopped herbs, oil, spring onion and some of the lemon juice. Set aside after you have seasoned well. Cut a thick slice from the rounded end of the aubergine. Then using a small knife and a teaspoon, you can scrape and cut out lots of the aubergine flesh until you have about a half-inch thick shell left. Now brush the inside and the outside of the aubergine with some more oil, and tightly pack the couscous into the vessel. Now return the slice to the bottom part of the aubergine it was taken from (this seals the vegetable), and wrap tightly in two layers of aluminum foil. If you are not ready to cook it at this point, it can be stored in the refrigerator up to a day.
