Crazy diets are unsustainable, and neither is healthy cooking if that means washing more than one pan, or an ingredient list as long as the Star Wars credits. We totally get the struggle. So, we’ve scoured the internet to bring you three great recipes us lazy millennials can actually prepare without much effort.

This recipe needs only two ingredients. Bananas and eggs. I know, right? It’s utterly idiot proof so no excuses.

 

Step 1: Smash banana in bowl
 

Step 2: Mix in 2 eggs.
 

Step 3:  Heat a pan and add a splash of oil before pouring in the mixture. Flip pancakes once bubbles appear on the top and when they begin to lose their shine.
 

Step 4: Serve with raw honey and top off with fresh fruit if you’d like!

Craving a satisfying meal but not the calories? Try this pasta recipe that has the right combination of protein, veggies and carbs! It’s under 300 calories, so don’t worry! 

 

Step 1: Boil whole wheat pasta.


Step 2: Sauté seasoned shrimp (you can use salt, pepper chilli flakes, dried herbs) and chopped leek in olive oil and chopped garlic until cooked.
 

Step 3: Turn off the flame and add the cooked pasta and raw spinach (it’ll cook from the heat of the pan), sautéed leeks and shrimp into the pan, drizzle olive oil all over and toss to mix everything up.
 

Step 4: Add a squeeze of lemon and season with salt and pepper to taste before serving.

 


There you have it, a filling and healthy meal, ready in under 20 minutes!

Hate having to wash a stack of dishes and bowls after cooking? All you require to make this hassle-free dish is a baking pan!
 

For this recipe, you’ll need chicken (thigh or breast, it’s up to you), onions, garlic, chopped potatoes, carrots and whatever else is in the fridge. It’s a great way to make use of random pieces of food lying in the fridge. Toss everything with a generous amount of olive oil, salt, pepper, chilli flakes and fresh or dried herbs and you’re ready to put it all in the oven! 

 

Step 1: Pre-heat your oven to 220 degrees celsius.


Step 2: In a baking pan, toss the chicken with chopped onions, garlic, potatoes (and whatever random ingredients you have) with a generous amount of olive oil, herbs, salt and pepper.


Step 3: Bake for 45 minutes or until the chicken is completely cooked through.



It couldn’t get any easier. Just enough effort to say you tried, and enough taste for success!
