Around 2 months ago I decided to make a change in my life in regards to the food I was eating. I was practically living off cheap microwave meals or take-a-ways.

Now, being a vegetarian is already a good start in trying to eat better (i.e. vegetables, home cooked meals etc.).

So, in this post I'm going to detail a few meals that I usually have throughout the week that are not only super easy to make, but also quite healthy and suitable for vegetarians and none vegetarians alike!

All the recipes below can be altered to suit taste (e.g. adding proper meat as opposed to vegetarian) 

This one is easily one of my favourites to make!
The vegetarian sausages I use are the Linda McCartney ones (find them here) they are currently on offer in Tesco for £1.50! Absolute steal! They're extremely tasty considering they're veggie sausages, the only thing I can criticise about them is that, like most veggie sausages I have tried, they can be quite dry!
For this meal, the sausages are simply put under the grill for 10-12 minutes, turning them every so often, until they are cooked! Around the 5-6 minute mark of the sausages being cooked, I bring a small pan of water to boil, add a bit of salt, then once there are bubbles I add the asparagus and cook for around 4-6 minutes (or until soft) and voila, a yummy quick meal!


Lightly dusted lemon and cracked black pepper cod fillets are easiest the best food related item I have found so far! These are SO tasty, and as they are only lightly dusted with bread crumbs, they're still pretty damn healthy! (you can pick these up here)

I simply put these in the oven for the time stated on the packaging! It's as simple as that!

I usually have these with mixed steamed veggies, which you can now buy in microwavable bags! (if you're super lazy like me then you should be just as excited about these as I was, pick them up from asda here)




This recipe I only tried the other day, it wasn't a huge success (I had trouble with not breaking the omelette before I could get it under the grill) but it was still super tasty!

You can google recipes for omelettes, but they are super easy to make! Just mix 3-4 eggs, some milk,, and once it's browned a bit in the pan, add your extras!

I chose to have mine with feta cheese and spinach and a side of asparagus, this was super tasty! And quite quick to make!! Depending on what type of omelette you would like to make, you can also add these tasty extras: ham and mushrooms, chicken and spinach, tomatoes, peppers etc.


The last meal (or rather, breakfast) I'm going to be talking about is scrambled egg on toast!

Now I know just about everyone knows how to make scrambled egg on toast, but I thought I'd mention this one as it's great as lunch or breakfast (or a snack if you're just feeling a little peckish) and it's super quick to make!

I make my scrambled egg in the microwave, I only use two medium eggs and a bit of almond milk and some pepper for a bit of taste. The I pop the mixture into the microwave for 3 minutes, and they come out lovely and fluffy!

I always use wholemeal toast with a tiny bit of light butter to put the scrambled egg on, so it's still quite a healthy and filling option!
