My friends always ask me “how do you have time to make all of these healthy and delicious recipes?” Well, the truth is I don’t always have/make the time to make my favorite meals and when I don’t make the time to cook I make sure to schedule in time to buy something healthy and filling during my lunch break. However, eating out everyday or every week can be pricey and we don’t all have the luxury of getting an hour lunch break. You may have seen lists of 30 minute recipes, but what if you has a list of 10 minute meal recipes?

So, we compiled this list of quick and easy 10 minute meal recipes.

For this reason, having recipes at hand that are fast, easy, and delicious are so helpful! Recipes that require minimal preparation and cook time are the best when a few minutes is all you have to throw something together. Below are eight fantastic ten minute meals that you will enjoy cooking up during any busy day of the week and that still taste great after storing or freezing.
