These nutritious, delicious recipes take just a minute to make.* They're also under 300 calories each. Now you'll always have time for three squares.

Cheesy Tomato-Pesto Open Sandwich

Heat multigrain English muffin halves in toaster. Meanwhile, cut two thick tomato slices. When muffin halves are hot (45 seconds), immediately top each with one thin slice of part-skim mozzarella cheese, one teaspoon of refrigerated store-bought pesto, and one tomato slice.

Eggs Ole

Crack two large eggs into a preheated, nonstick skillet over high heat (drop a little water into the pan to determine if it's hot enough; the water should sizzle), breaking the yolks. Cook omelet-style (just one side) for 50 seconds, or until fully cooked. Make sure that yolks and whites are firm. Remove with spatula to plate. Top with two soup spoons of salsa and one heaping soup spoon of guacamole. Enjoy with one handful of baked tortilla chips.

Your article is misleading, given your disclaimer about all the steps that aren't included here, but would be necessary in preparing food.
