Enter vegetables, mushrooms, tofu, quinoa, and fruit. The beauty here is that you can have a pretty standard selection of these at home and simply use them in different combinations whenever you feel like it.
Try, for example, some mushrooms, carrots, tomatoes and scallions - lightly fried and mixed with cooked quinoa. Whip up an omelette to die for with mushrooms, eggs, spinach, onions and tomatoes. Or fry yourself some kale - that goes nicely on top of a brie sandwich with avocado spread. Bok choy and mushrooms, spiced up with ginger, will make for a good, light meal. Various herbs, such as basil, coriander, and thyme, are mandatory in all cases.
A tofu and vegetable stir-fry is more time consuming, but totally worth the effort. And a Japanese enough okonomiyaki can be made with just cabbage, carrots, mushrooms, onions, eggs and flour. Or, if you want something a little fancier and a little less vegetarian, go for a fish fillet italiano. That one's best with cod or haddock, and you'll need to add onions, tomatoes, olives, and a few drops of white wine.
For dessert, nothing beats the Simplest Ever Fruit Salad: bananas, strawberries, raspberries and blueberries, sprinkled with orange juice and cinnamon.
The best part? Most of the above culinary opuses take 15-30 minutes to prepare. That's what I call fast food!
This will likely be my only food-themed post. I don't even have a tag for it. I'll just tag it "life". 'Cause that's what it is. And it's good.
