We don’t have to tell you about Joe Wicks. You, like us, are probably already one of his dedicated 1.7m Instagram followers, constantly double-tapping on the delicious quick-fire recipes he uploads, all of which remove any excuse to reach for the takeaway menu and dial up a greasy curry ever again.
In fact, so popular is the Body Coach that, incredibly, he’s behind the second best-selling cookbook in the UK, chasing some guy called Jamie Oliver, having sold more than one million copies of his award-winning Lean In 15. Yup, Wicks is a biiig deal now, and with stacks of super-fast, tasty and healthy recipe ideas under his belt – like the five favourites we’ve pulled out below – it’s not hard to see why.
1. Ridiculously Good-Looking Baked Egg Rolls
Oh, this? Only the best idea ever. Slice off the top of a roll, hollow it out, spread some pesto in there, layer in some ham, crack an egg in it and pop it in the oven.

2. Stack-’Em-High Fruity Protein Pancakes
You always mean to make them; here’s your justification. Consider this a big protein-packed push towards the frying pan.

3. Low-Carb, Big Heat Spicy Chilli Bowl
The archetypal winter warmer in a hurry. Whack up the heat and get this dish down to 15 minutes.
4. Killer Chicken Katsu Curry
Good luck getting this cooked in 15 minutes – and good luck not wolfing it down within five. All is forgiven, though, for getting the sweetness in the sauce from an apple and for instructing us to bash the chicken breast with a saucepan.
5. Turbo-Quick Tortilla Pizza
Done, quicker than you can say “just like Mama used to make”.
