Easy, Healthy Dinner for 1-All From the Microwave!

Last night I made the easiest dinner and it all came from my microwave! I took a small sweet potato and microwaved it 10 minutes. Then I discovered that's how long you microwave a large sweet potato and had to start over. The new sweet potato was only microwaved 5-6 min. Next, I got out a bag of Trader Joe's Balsamic Roasted Vegetables from the freezer. You put the whole bags worth of vegetables on a plate and microwave for 6 min. Once they were done cooking I separated them into individual serving sizes, so now I have vegeatbles pre-portioned for the next few days! Last, I took out two frozen turkey meatballs from Trader Joe's and microwaved them for 1 min. I put 2 tablespoons pesto on top of them and put it back in the microwave for 30 sec. It probably could have been 20, but they came out fine.
And that's it! So simple, and I could do other things while each was in the microwave. Those vegetables by the way are amazing! I am not a veggie girl, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to start eating these veggies everynight! If you have any easy meal ideas please send them my way!!!
