Local Leaders | Nutrition: 15-Minute Meals

The New Year brings with it a boost in our mojo to look at the way we eat, drink, sleep and move.

To help kick off the good food vibes, here are three simple and speedy meal ideas. 


This is my number go-to when I’m strapped for time. 

Simply sauté a whole bunch of vegetables such as spinach, mushroom and zucchini, whisk up a few eggs (I tend to use around six for my family of three) and pour over the vegetables. 

Dot it with some feta cheese, cover with a lid and cook on a medium heat for 5-10 minutes. 

Remove the lid and place under the grill for 5 minutes until golden. Serve with a colourful salad. 


Remove the skin and shred a pre-cooked chook from the deli. Portion out the amount you require and get creative with various salad ingredients. 

I like to use tinned chickpeas, cherry tomatoes, cos lettuce and sliced capsicum, tomato, red onion and avocado.

You also have my full permission to use a delicious dressing. A simple combo of extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar and pinch of salt works a treat.


This recipe is dead easy. Sauté 500g chicken mince and a packet of dry slaw in a little olive oil. 

Add in a splash of soy, fish and sweet chilli sauce, mixing well to combine. Serve in a crunchy cos lettuce cup.
