41+ Fast Healthy Meal Ideas Every Drive Thru Sue Will Love!

Want to eat healthier but feel like you don’t have time? You’re going to love this round up of healthy meal ideas perfect for THM!

It’s easy to get stuck in the trap of thinking healthy meals have to take a lot of time.

That fast and convenient food can’t be good for you.

But I’m here to say there are so many simple meal ideas that are healthy and taste great too!

After all, life gets busy.

So today I’m sharing some of my favorite meal ideas you can throw together in a jiffy.

And you don’t have to give up your goals for eating healthy.

Some of these meals are great for a low carb lifestyle.

And others include healthy carbs because Trim Healthy Mamas don’t have to give up any food groups.

What’s THM?

Well, it’s not a diet.

It’s a healthy lifestyle.

Here’s a link for the THM Plan book that teaches you the basics if you’re interested in learning more!

I’ve shared how I lost 25 lbs and went from a size 12 to a size 4 without counting a single calorie here.

The best part?

I never felt like I was on a diet.

And I’ve continued eating this way since 2016, even though I’m at my goal weight and size.

But let’s get back to those healthy meal ideas!

Some of these meals come together super quickly because I follow these three tips for easy meal preparation.

For your convenience, I’ve included what kind of fuel each meal is if you follow THM.

If you follow another low carb lifestyle, any meal marked THM S or THM FP will work for you!

Quick THM Breakfast Ideas

Here are nine of my favorite grab-and-go kinds of breakfasts. I’ve included what type of THM meal each option is to make it even easier for you!

Breakfast Parfait: THM E or THM S

bowl of nonfat Greek yogurt topped with sliced strawberries and Ezekiel cereal THM E meal

THM E meal Add some sweetener to plain nonfat Greek yogurt and top with sliced berries and a serving of Ezekiel granola cereal.

THM S meal Use a keto granola instead of the Ezekiel granola.

Fruity Toast: THM E

plate with toasted sprouted bread topped with clementine wedges THM E meal

THM E meal Sliced sprouted bread spread with a light laughing cow cheese wedge and topped with clementines.

You can use any kind of fruit you want!

I love this with peaches or apples with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Add collagen to your coffee or tea for more protein.

Leftover Scramble: THM S

plate with breakfast scramble with green peppers, onions and mushrooms next to two turkey sausage patties THM Deep S meal

THM Deep S Meal Scramble leftover veggies (this is green bell peppers, mushrooms, and a few onions) with eggs.

Two frozen turkey sausage patties were cooked in the microwave while the eggs were cooked.

You can easily substitute any meat for added protein, or even scramble it in with the veggies.

Chicken in scrambled eggs is surprisingly good!

Berries & Cream: THM FP

bowl filled with nonfat Greek yogurt, blackberries, and toasted oats THM E meal

THM FP meal Plain nonfat Greek yogurt with sweetener to taste topped with fresh berries and a Tablespoon of toasted oats.

I keep toasted oats on hand in a small mason jar just for this!

It’s easy to make a batch of toasted oats: place oats (old fashioned or quick cooking) in a nonstick pan over medium-high heat and spritz very lightly with coconut oil. Stir every few minutes until the oats become golden brown. If desired, sprinkle lightly with mineral salt, cinnamon, or even tajin. Cool and store in an air-tight container up to a month.

Everything But the Bagel: THM E

plate with two slices of sprouted toast topped with laughing cow cheese and everything bagel seasoning with mini bell peppers and a peeled clementine THM E meal

THM E meal Spread sprouted toast with laughing cow cheese (one wedge per slice or one wedge divided) and sprinkle generously with everything bagel seasoning.

Add in some mini bell peppers and a clementine (or another small piece of fruit) for variety.

Put collagen in your coffee or tea for more protein.

Microwave Veggies & Eggs: THM S

plate with egg white vegetable frittata cups, steamed broccoli, and turkey sausage links THM light S meal

THM S meal I love these frozen egg white veggie frittatas. I buy a big box from Costco but they can be found in lots of stores now.

This entire plate is cooked in the microwave for four minutes.

The broccoli is from a bag of precut broccoli, also from Costco.

The frozen chicken sausage links are another Costco find, but any frozen turkey sausage works.

You can make your own mini frittatas if you prefer using the Mufflet recipe (p 237) in the THM cookbook, but us Drive Thru Sues love easy options, right?!?

Just Like Starbucks, But Better: THM S

plate with egg bites and steamed broccoli next to a mug of tea with almond milk creamer THM S meal

THM S meal These egg bites are another Costco find, but I’ve seen them in a lot of stores recently.

They’re basically a knock-off of the Starbucks sous vide eggs.

Cook some precut broccoli in the microwave, or add any leftover veggies for a healthy breakfast.

Maple Pumpkin Spice Overnight Oats: THM E

THM E meal Overnight oats are one of my favorite easy breakfasts!

I mix up a batch of this pumpkin spice recipe and have breakfast ready for four days in under 5 minutes!

Grilled Veggie Hash: THM S

THM Deep S Adding sliced deli ham and leftover grilled veggies to some scrambled eggs for a super fast, super healthy breakfast.

You could even cook them in the microwave!

If you don’t need a Deep S meal, add some cheese too.

Fast THM Lunch Ideas

Lunch is often leftovers from dinner, which is always a fast meal.

But some days I want something different.

Most of these ideas pack and travel well, and only one requires access to a microwave.

You can always swap out the veggies shown on my plates for your favorites!

Deli Wrap Pinwheels: THM S

Plate with pinwheel wraps made with red peppers and spinach THM S drive thru sue meal

THM S Meal I’ve discovered I can trick myself into thinking I have more food when I cut my wraps up into pinwheels.

Also, it’s way easier to eat a pinwheel while driving or working than a whole wrap!

I made this one with a Sundried Tomato Low Carb Wrap spread with a wedge of white cheddar Laughing Cow cheese.

Next, I sprinkled the cheese with some lemon pepper seasoning and a little bit of Primal Kitchen Caesar Salad dressing.

A couple of handfuls of baby spinach, a few slices of deli turkey, and some strips of bell pepper round it out.

Brown Rice Cakewiches: THM E

plate with mini bell peppers, blackberries, pickled okra, and rice cakes topped with ham and mustard THM E

THM E meal I love brown rice cakes! Here I spread them with a wedge of laughing cow cheese and topped them with sliced deli ham.

Some pickled okra, mini bell peppers, and blackberries add a ton of antioxidants.

Since this is an E meal, you can add other types of fruit instead of the blackberries.

Chocolate PB & Nanners: THM E

paper plate with sprouted wheat bread topped with chocolate spread and sliced bananas THM E meal

THM E meal Did you know you can add cocoa powder to peanut junkie butter?

Well, you can!

Spread it on sprouted bread and top with banana slices for a delicious sandwich.

Snick Snack Lunch: THM S

plate filled with rolls of deli ham and deli turkey, mini bell peppers, garlic biscuits, and pickled okra THM S meal

THM S meal Growing up I loved “nibble lunches” with deli meat, cheese, pickles, olives, and crackers. This is my THM-friendly version.

Rolls of deli meat paired with some leftover low carb garlic biscuits.

Pickled okra and mini bell peppers round out the meal.

And a wedge of skinny chocolate.

Turkey Sandwich and Easy Broccoli Slaw: THM E

plate with sprouted wheat sandwich, sliced raw veggies, and cup of broccoli slaw THM E meal

THM E meal A turkey sandwich on sprouted bread is extra delicious when you spread it with a mix of Dijon mustard and strawberry All Fruit jelly.

I know it sounds weird, but trust me. It’s amazing!

Brocolli slaw dressed with a little apple cider vinegar, MCT oil, salt & pepper, plus some sliced raw veggies help fill you up.

Egg Salad Dippers: THM S

plate with egg salad, pickled okra, sliced green bell pepper, and flackers THM S meal

THM S meal I love mixing up a batch of egg salad for easy meals.

Scoop it up with wedges of bell peppers and some Flackers.

Chicken or Tuna Salad Plate: THM S

Paper plate with chicken salad, mini bell peppers, pickled okra and a piece of lavash bread THM S THM S meal

THM S meal Chicken salad or tuna salad is another great make ahead option.

You can put it inside half a Joseph’s lavash bread or a low carb tortilla.

Don’t forget the veggies!

You can even make these salads with nonfat Greek yogurt instead of mayo and use sprouted bread or add a fruit serving to make this an E meal.

Deli Plate: THM S

plate filled with sliced cucumbers, rolls of deli ham, sliced pepperoni, sliced provolone cheese, pork rinds, and cup of broccoli slaw THM S meal

THM S meal I buy lots of broccoli slaw. Sometimes I mix it up like coleslaw and have it as a side dish several times that week.

This simple deli plate has lunch meat, cheese, and some pork rinds for crunch.

Easy Nachos: THM S

Plate with sliced, halved mini bell peppers filled with taco meat and covered with melted cheese THM S meal

THM S meal This is basically leftover taco meat.

Usually, I just make taco salads.

But how about a keto nacho plate using mini bell peppers!

Add salsa, guacamole, sour cream, pico de gallo, for an amazing easy lunch.

THM E-Style Deli Plate

plate with sliced green bell pepper, roasted red peppers, pickled okra, stuffed celery, and wasa crackers topped with ham THM E meal

THM E meal I’ve used two wedges of laughing cow cheese on this plate.

One wedge is split between two Wasa crackers.

One wedge is used to stuff the celery.

I love using roasted red peppers on these cracker “sandwiches” and usually put them under the meat, but wanted to make sure you saw them!

Crunch PB&B: THM E

plate with brown rice cakes spread with peanut junkie butter and sliced bananas with a cup of sliced cucumbers THM E meal

THM E meal Remember those brown rice cakes?

Spread them with some peanut junkie butter and top them with sliced bananas or sliced apples!

Tuna Dippers Plate: THM S

plate with tuna salad, sliced cucumbers, sliced red bell pepper, and crackers made from toasted lavash bread THM S meal

THM S meal Another make ahead salad option: tuna. I load mine up with celery for extra crunch and more veggies.

Toast half a lavash bread for crackers.

Have you ever tried sprinkling everything bagel seasoning on raw veggies? AnnMarie introduced me to that and its so good!

Creamy Peachy Sandwich: THM E

Plate with sprouted bread topped with blended cream cheese and sliced peaches THM E meal

THM E meal I call this a peaches and cream sandwich.

The “cream” is this easy recipe without the Lily’s chips added in. You can eat it in a bowl for a sweet snack, or spread it on bread topped with fruit.


Simple THM Snack Ideas

I love all the shake recipes in the THM cookbooks and from bloggers.

They make the perfect fast snack to “eat” on the run, or while you’re working.

Even though I’m listing them as “snacks,” I often enjoy shakes for breakfast or lunch too.

Pumpkin Spice Latte Custard Shake: THM S

THM S meal This Pumpkin Spice Custard Shake is amazing!

It’s got all the feels of fall with a rich custard flavor.

But I drink it all year long.

Vanilla Berries & Cream: THM FP

THM FP meal Add some sweetener and vanilla extract to plain nonfat Greek yogurt and mix in some fresh berries.

You can use Triple Zero vanilla yogurt to make it even faster!

Cookie Dough and Milk: THM S

This raw cookie dough is delicious and so easy to make!

Pair it with some almond milk for cookies and milk.

Nibbles to Go: THM S

plate with sliced radishes, cucumbers, and green peppers with sliced salami, sliced cheddar cheese, and Greek olives THM S snack

THM S meal Don’t waste money on pre-packaged keto snack boxes (although they’re great if you’re out without a snack!).

Keep the same ingredients on hand to make your own budget-friendly low carb snack.

Plus you can add in some veggies to keep it healthy.

Apple Pie Smoothie: THM E

Deviled Egg Keto Snacker: THM S

Plate with sliced bell peppers, sliced cheese, sliced salami, stuffed celery, pickled okra and 2 deviled eggs THM S meal

THM S meal Hard boiled eggs are a great easy snack (or lunch). If you’ve got time, make a batch of deviled eggs like these “not your mama’s deviled eggs” to snack on all week!

Depending on how hungry you are, add in some sliced sausage, cheese, veggies, and pickles.

The celery is stuffed with cream cheese mixed with hot sauces and some cracked pepper.

Oatmeal Cookies & Cream: THM E

cup of Triple Zero yogurt and two oatmeal cookie bites on a paper towel THM E snack

THM E meal Every so often I treat myself to a box of Alyssa’s oatmeal bite cookies. I get them at Publix.

You can check to see where to find them near you with the link!

Pair them with some Triple Zero yogurt and you’ve got a yummy E snack.

These cookies do have dried fruit in them so don’t do this one all the time.

Chocolate Hazelnut Sandwich: THM E

Sprouted bread sandwich filled with chocolate spread on a plate with a mug of tea THM E meal

THM E meal Sometimes, I just crave Nutella.

You can get a sugar-free keto version of it but if you want a Nutella sandwich, I mix this up.

Combine 1/4 cup plain, unsweetened whey protein powder with 1 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder, sweetener to taste, 1/4 tsp of hazelnut extract, a sprinkle of salt, and enough almond milk to get it to spreading consistency.

Then make a chocolate sandwich with sprouted bread.

Try topping it with raspberries or sliced strawberries!

Blackberry Shake: THM FP or THM S

THM FP or S meal You can decide whether to make this delicious blackberry shake an FP or an S.

Speedy THM Dinner Ideas

Dinner for my family is often grilled or roasted meat paired with grilled or roasted veggies. Sometimes with a salad.

I really keep it simple and don’t make labor intensive recipes very often.

Here are a few other quick ideas.

Easy Zucchini Stirfry: THM S

Half of a plate filled with ground beef and zucchini stirfry

Any time I can get dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes from start to finish I consider it a win!

This easy keto zucchini stirfry recipe is definitely one of those meals.

It’s got a little bit of heat, and you can easily swap out the zucchini for bagged pre-cut broccoli to make it even faster.

Green Chicken Enchilada Casserole: THM S

My family asks for it all the time.

Did I mention it freezes well too?

Chicken Alfredo Zucchini Boats: THM S

Here’s another dinner with less than 5 ingredients.

If your family doesn’t like alfredo, or you want some more variations, try using Rao’s marinara sauce or pesto sauce instead.

Rotisserie Chicken Berry Salad: THM S

Large salad bowl filled with mixed greens and topped with rotisserie chicken and blackberries

THM S meal Rotisserie chicken and boxes or bags of salad greens are your friends!

I added a handful of broccoli slaw to the salad greens.

You can truly throw anything on top of a bed of lettuce for a fast dinner!

You can see some more of my favorite salad ideas here.

Taco Tuesday Stuffed Peppers: THM S

Add some salsa on top or even guacamole!

Italian Meatballs Florentine: THM S

Grilled Chicken Slaw: THM FP

I dressed it with apple cider vinegar and MCT oil with some salt and pepper.

Easy Spaghetti Dinner: THM S
