The fact that fast foods are unhealthy remains forgotten because of the convenience it brings. But what if I tell you that there are a lot of healthy recipes for two that you can cook up just in time before your husband comes home? Wouldn’t that be nicer and budget friendlier?
Here are some easy recipes for two that you can whip up now:
Egg Bake with Asparagus
Are you tired of the usual scrambled eggs? Vamp up your usual scrambled eggs with just about any vegetables that can add spice to your otherwise boring meal. Asparagus sticks to the egg bake better that other vegetables that are why it is more recommended.
Steam your vegetables, and beat your eggs the usual way, mix the vegetables with the eggs and bake for 5-10 minutes. This is best paired with your favorite muffin or bread for your daily dose of fiber.

Cinnamon Rolls with a Rustic Feel
If you are longing for the certain spice that only cinnamon can bring, don’t commit the mistake of buying the commercialized cinnamon rolls that are readily available at Starbucks or the nearest bakeshop.
These yummy treats are filled with too much butter and sugar that are anything but healthy. The best thing to do is to bake your own little cinnamon rolls to quench you and your husband’s thirst. See how easy this healthy recipe for two is.
All you have to do is, combine almond milk, water, and coconut oil and microwave it for 20 sec. or until melted. Remove from the microwave and let it cool until it is lukewarm or just about 10 minutes. When lukewarm, mix in brown sugar and yeast and allow it to sit for about 5 minutes.
Prepare a large bowl, mix in the yeast mixture, honey and some egg whites. Mix until you can hold in into a ball. Cover it with a plastic wrap and leave for 1 hour, the dough should have doubled its size by then.
While waiting for the dough to rise, prepare coconut oil, honey and brown sugar and place in the microwave for 10 sec. just to thin the honey. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.
Take out the yeast ball and flour some flat surface where you can knead it. Go back to your thinned honey in the refrigerator; it should have developed into a jelly-like consistency by then. Cut it into squares and distribute it to the dough. Roll the dough into small rolls, and sprinkle some cinnamon.
Bake the bread for 30 min. Enjoy!
