Healthy yet simple sandwiches and snacks, both traditional and rather unusual. A few of these require a stove or a microwave, to pre-cook ingredients, but most can be done without either. Feel free to experiment with different kinds of bread: rye, pumpernickel, pita, focaccia, etc.
Soups and salads provide a good balance of protein, vegetables, and carbs, and are extra easy to make. Most of these can be fixed in under 15 minutes.
Fish, meat, pasta - hot meals that you can have right now, or cook for a whole week ahead and reheat as needed. Some are quick and easy, others take a while to cook, but all use 5 ingredients or less, and, while cooking time can vary, prep time is no longer than 20 minutes.
Rice, potatoes, vegetables. Vegetables are important to have plenty of, but hard to come up with. Plenty of exotic recipes that are easy to make and that taste great.
Omelettes, pancakes, desserts, smoothies. Some are yummy, others are both healthy and yummy :)
