Fast Fresh Food

Four great meals that take just moments to make!

I think the one cooking-related comment that I hear most often from people is that they find they just don’t have time to prepare the nutritious meals they want to eat. I get it – life is hectic and it does take a little extra planning to put good food on the table each day. That’s why I work hard to create recipes for this blog that come together quickly and taste terrific. For a recent series of segments on CTV Morning Live Ottawa, I was asked to share four fast, fresh favourites with host Sarah Freemark. We had fun playing in the Constantly Cooking kitchen to create the dishes below (click on the names to access the recipes) and I showed Sarah how a few great gadgets like the InstantPot, KitchenAid stand mixer and spiralizer can make meal prep a whole lot simpler. The best part: each of the recipes featured on the show takes as little as 5 minutes but no more than 20 minutes to prepare. Healthy, delicious meals have never been so easy!
