23 Cheap, Healthy and Quick Meals

 

I don't know about you, but I always feel squeezed for time. Between work, workouts, physical therapy sessions (I'm getting over a leg injury), and time with my boyfriend and friends, I'm always running from one thing to the next. But that doesn't mean a healthy meal rotation has to be sacrificed. Eating well doesn't have to be expensive or time consuming. I've got a few veggie- and protein-packed dishes I like to cook when I'm busy. These meals prove you can spend less time in the kitchen without sacrificing flavor or nutrition! Want in on my favorite 20-minute (or less!) recipes?
