FAST AND EASY QUICK RECIPES AND MORE


Scroll down for dozens of delicious Quick Recipes.


All of the recipes shown here are low in sugar, low in fat, easy to prepare, and totally tasty.

Each carefully measured portion contains 350 calories or less, but is still a satisfying hunger solution that can last for three hours or more, especially if you are a female. 


You may feel just a little bit hungry when you first try this, but you don’t have to give up any of the foods or drinks you like in order to follow the plan.

Just be sure to add the calories of everything you eat, always trying to keep your total daily calorie intake at your desired level.

It’s all about calculating portion size and attending to our nutritional needs in a mindful manner. 


A healthy woman of average height can eat any four of these meals each day without gaining weight. She can even add a gourmet coffee or tea drink to her daily menu.

A typical healthy male can eat five or six of these portions, and still enjoy a 600 calorie meal at dinner time. 

Whether male, female, or other, just stick with the portion sizes shown here. In other words, if the recipe calls for 1 teaspoon of butter, don’t use 1 tablespoon. If the recipe says 12 almonds, don’t use 20. And so on.

You can even customize your own menu, adding your own favorite flavors. 

One important “rule of thumb” is to try to include in your diet plan at least 5 helpings of fruits and/or vegetables a week. 


These quick recipes are grouped into four categories, which can loosely be defined as breakfast, lunch, dinner, ad dessert.

However, there is no reason why you can’t enjoy any of these quick recipes, any time of the day or night.
