Quick & Easy Meals


Edited: Aug 11, 2017

Hi all, obviously most of us are struggling with memory issues and other health issues and cooking can become a long and tedious endeavour. Thought it might be swell to create a bank of quick 'ten minhte' recipes we can all make use of if y'all are willing to share your best creations?

Great Idea John! Here's one of my go-to's!! veggie fried rice, ready in 10 mins.


2 tablespoons sesame oil, divided

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 1-inch piece fresh ginger, grated*

3 eggs

4 cups brown rice (cooked, cooled, and separated)**

1 cup frozen corn

1-2 cups frozen peas

½ tablespoon rice vinegar

2-3 tablespoons soy sauce

fresh chives, fresh basil, baby spinach, any other add ins you want!


Heat one tablespoon oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the garlic cloves and ginger and stir fry for one minute. Crack the eggs directly into the pan and gently push them around in the pan until barely cooked, 1-2 minutes.

Add the rice and stir fry for a few minutes, adding the other tablespoon of oil and turning the heat up to get it sizzlin. The eggs should sort of incorporate and stick to the rice. NUM.

Add the frozen corn, peas, rice vinegar, and soy sauce and stir fry for another 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in any additional add-ins (basil is a must! SO good) and serve!


*For ginger, I used Garden Gourmet fresh ginger paste.

**I've used both leftover rice from the night before AND the prepackaged cooked brown rice from Seeds of Change. While normally I wouldn't like the prepackaged, precooked stuff, it actually worked wonders for this because it separates super easily, just the way you want for fried rice.

Great idea for a thread John, thanks! Early-stage Alzheimer's fighter here, so I'm really starting to take notice of what I eat. That sounds delicious Pat, would love to hear other suggestions.

    Hi all! I just wanted to share a new discovery for me. I know juices have become a popular trend, but I hadn't taken much interest until a friend gave me a juicer and now I'm hooked. Green fruit or veggie juice in the morning is the best! I drink 2 per day and I feel so much healthier and full of energy. I think the extra vitamins are what does it. Are any of you juicers aswell?? Would be great to share tips/recipes :)

    Has anyone one else tried this or do any of you regularly grow all your own veggies? I've got a small allotment I'd love to put to good use, any tips for me?

    I was reading this article (below) recently, and it really made me think about the food I eat and genetically modified food in general. I knew it happened with vegetables, but now meat!? What do people think about this? Is it really such a bad thing? I don't understand all the ins and outs of the process, so perhaps somebody more intelligent than I can offer some insight?
