I really dislike cooking. The prep and the cleanup and the time-consuming-ness. It's been a huge barrier in my efforts to become healthier.

However, I'm learning that when I plan and prepare a really healthy meal, I feel really, really good about myself.

Tonight I had a spicy black bean burger (just the patty, not a sandwich) topped with roasted corn salsa, and a salad with baby spinach, sugar snap peas, blackberries, and raspberry vinaigrette dressing. I'm about to have chocolate-cherry Greek yogurt for dessert.

Is it perfect? Of course not. But it was quick, easy, it tasted great and I feel fantastic. It's a huge step up from how I've been eating for the past 26 years.

I feel like sharing this sense of satisfaction.

What are your favorite low-effort, low-mess healthy meals?

I absolutely know what you mean and can agree.. I never really learned to cook major things only knew a few basics. I have recently decided it's time to start preparing most of my meals in an effort to eat healthier as well..  The time does suck lol but I to feel better knowing I'm eating good.  Good job and keep it up

When I was young I loved cooking, but now that I'm in college it seems like the worst idea in the world. There's no way around it if you want to be healthy :( sure wish there were.

I definitely do not hate cooking, but I can still understand the effort part. My biggest tip for that is to start to make bigger potions for whatever you like... Soups, sauces, burgers, etc and freeze them. You can even make your own freezer lasagna for example.

Nothing wrong with your meal at all, sounds good to me :)
