Sometimes, being an adult can feel way more awesome than you would have ever expected. Other times, it can also feel like it doesn't match your childhood expectations. Like, I can wake up and eat ice cream for breakfast, if I want — AMAZING. On the other hand, my weeknight dinners look NOTHING like what I was led to believe would happen — DISAPPOINTING. But, you know what? I gave up on the huge dinner spread long ago. That's life in a commercial. Real life looks more like a quick meal where I can have my feet up and good food in my belly, fast (and it better be really fast).

To that end, here are three recipes designed just for us by The Natural Gourmet Institute that take just 15 minutes to whip up. Double up on the recipes to have leftovers for an awesome take-to-work lunch!
