    I don't have kids but I do a lot of salad or steamed veges and meat eg turkey steaks from woolies, chicken breast, etc. Minimal effort food! I'm also addicted to lasagne at the moment but its not healthy lol

    Last night I marinated some chicken tenderloins in (bought) honey mustard marinade. While they cooked, I popped some pumpkin and red onion in the oven to roast, and threw together a very simple salad of lettuce, red capsicum and lebanese cucumber. Threw everything together at the end and it was very tasty and easy!

    I also have quick backups like

    Homemade pizza- just whatever I have left over at the end of the week thrown onto pita bread with some cheese on top

    Spag bol- sometimes I just CAN'T be bothered and use the bottle stuff- and it's very quick and tastes ok too.

    Would your DH help with a BBQ? I always have barbie stuff ready in warmer weather because I know DP will cook it and I just have to do the salad!

    I also did a bought packet of mexican rice that you heat in the microwave, cooked some frozen peas, poached a chicken breast in stock and diced it up and then mixed it all together with some cheese- that was a very easy meal too!

    Omelettes with veggies (use steam fresh veg of you can't be bothered with the chopping!), tomato and cheese. Served with toast

    Or add sliced potato and make it a Spanish omelette.

    To contribute, these are what weve had lately ...


    - broccoli soup and pumpkin soup (but too hot now) , usually makes enough for 2 meals and my toddlers love soup

    - also do the whole meal pita bread pizzas Because its a big family even that can feel quite time consuming though

    - meat & salad

    - latest fave is tortillas in the sandwich press with frozen spinach and ricotta, or refried beans etc

    - high level of desperation = scrambled eggs or baked beans

    I think a lot of the aversion comes from mentally feeling like its a task, so simple simple things feel less draining

    Someone mentioned the cherry tomatoes etc, think that's a good idea and I might just out out some carrot sticks and cherry tomatoes etc with some of these ideas so it feels healthier at minimum effort

    Whenever my husband tries cooking, he makes it unhealthy - every healthy recipe by the time he's cooked it 3 times has been transformed into something full of saturated fat etc. really gross. And makes appalling splash mess up the walls etc

    On friday I couldn't be bothered and just bought a BBQ chicken and a salad with bread rolls.

    I do strips of cucumber, capsicum, carrot, celery and snow peas and dip them into philladelphia cheese either for snacks or with dinner.

    Tacos/buritos are our quick couldn't really be bothered meal. Either with the taco mince or BBQ chicken or snitzel pieces. (Could be done with the pre-made snitzels or tenderloins or something too) We use either the taco shells, buritos or mountain bread. Then the meat with a taco sauce and lettuce, tomato, cucumber, capsicum, sour cream and grated cheese.

    eta: Just thought of another quick meal we do. Its just baked beans/spaghetti on toast but I fry up some onion and tomato and whatever else I feel like on a frypan with a spray of oil and add it to the heated up tin of baked beans/spaghetti and serve on toast.

    Love tacos or tortillas like that

    I have just made a deal with my 14 year old tht she will cook every night for pocket money (she currently doesn't get any) - she's now making an omelette with frozen spinach and mushroom
