If your idea of cooking is microwaving yesterday's leftovers, these recipes are for you! Here, 25 yummy and healthy no-cook meals that are a breeze to make.

Breakfasts for Busy Girls

Fresh Figs with Ricotta, Honey, and Pistachios

In a bowl, fold a spoonful or two of honey into ricotta cheese. Slice fresh figs in half lengthwise and serve alongside a dollop of the cheese mixture. Top with shelled, chopped pistachios.

Strawberry-Nectarine Smoothie

Place quartered fresh strawberries and pitted, chopped nectarines in a blender. Add plain yogurt, orange juice, and a handful of ice. For a slightly sweeter smoothie, blend in a tablespoon or two of honey.

Yogurt and Berry Parfait with Candied Ginger

Toss together a mix of fresh, ripe berries, such as blueberries, raspberries, chopped strawberries, and blackberries. Spoon plain or vanilla yogurt into the bottom of a parfait glass. Top with a spoonful of chopped candied ginger, followed by a handful of berries. Repeat, finishing with berries and garnishing with ginger.

Chocolate-Raspberry-Soy Smoothie

Place several cups of fresh or frozen raspberries in a blender (if using fresh, also toss in a handful of ice cubes). Add a small banana and just enough chocolate soy milk to reach the desired consistency.

Whole wheat spikes your blood sugar more than a snickers bar. Wheat is the problem, not the answer. Read the book "Wheat Belly" by Dr. William Davis.
