Pasta

Pasta is another easy meal to make when time is an issue. And if you thought ahead and stocked your pantry with the ingredients, it will also save you a trip to the grocery store. Choose whole wheat linguine or spaghetti over regular noodles to add some fiber to the meal and a jar of healthy marinara sauce will serve up plenty of antioxidants. Brown some ground beef to add to the sauce, or better yet, opt for heart healthy lean ground turkey breast instead.
