Being on crutches and a prosthetic leg (I lost my leg to bone cancer 20 years ago) forces me to keep it quick and easy when in the kitchen. For me, keeping it healthy while making quick and easy dishes is just a matter of streamlining and being creative.
Sometime the more simple the foods - the more tasty the dishes. If you're leaning in a plant-based diet direction and would like to try creating and eating something healthier than a slice of pizza or a burger, there are many simple, delicious dishes that are easy to put together, fun to serve, tasty to eat and most of all - make you feel great!
Cooking should be fun because eating is necessary – not a necessary evil, mind you – but a daily necessity never-the-less and anything that you must do as part of a daily routine needs to be interesting, enjoyable, even inspiring or else most of us will do it simply to get it done – resulting in less than beneficial results!
Tasty Time Saving Tips:
Canned beans hold their nutritional value and are a great time saver in recipes calling for cooked beans.
Chopped vegetables can be prepared ahead of time and kept in the refrigerator in separate containers. Separate containers can provide better quality of flavor and appearance, as well as a longer shelf life.
Fresh vegetables are most nutritious, frozen next and canned veggies hold their nutritional value the least – however, whatever works for you in the moment is better than NO veggies at all.

Let's face it, whether you're literally on your last leg (like me), have been working all day or constantly have a house full of hungry mouths to feed, chances are you just don't want to spend hours in the kitchen. No worries! Delicious, plant-based eating need never be anything less than quick and easy.
