Steamed lemon pepper tilapia, quinoa with green onions from the garden and lettuce from the garden.
Quinoa is really easy to make and super healthy. Just follow the directions on the back of the pack. Takes about 10-12 minutes on the stove top. Can’t mess it up really. Stores well in fridge and can be served cold. Excellent with cut up tomatoes veggies and any type of vinaigrette.
Easy, Fast, Healthy Meal
So, let me guess…
You just got home from work or class or whatever and you’re super hungry and you’ve only got 20 minutes to cook. Eating a bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch while your Ramen is microwaving is looking like a good option. BUT WAIT!
What if you could have this instead! (tuhh-duh)
LEMON SEASONED STEAMED TILAPIA WITH STEAMED BROCCOLI AND MUSHROOMS AND BABY SPINACH WITH BALSALMIC VINAIGRETTE
You could do this.
-Bamboo steamer (15 bucks well spent)
-Pot, saucepan or wok
-Tilapia or other boneless, skinless filet
-Vegetables, broccoli, asparagus, mushrooms whatever
-Seasoning, i use McCormick Lemon Pepper
-Baby Spinach or some type of lettuce
-Salad dressing, i use balsamic vinaigrette
-If your fish is frozen, let it thaw in the fridge for 12-24 hrs.
-put some aluminum foil in one rack of your steamer
-rinse fish with cold water, put it on the foil and cover in seasoning
-put about an inch of water in your pot and bring to boil
-put steamer in pot (make sure fish isn’t sitting in the water)
-put the lid on the steamer. itll be done in 10-15 minutes total. (some people say 8-10 minutes is plenty for fish. im paranoid so i cook it longer)
-break up your vegetables and put them in another steamer rack
-wait until 5 minutes until fish is done and add that rack to the steamer and put the lid back on
-take in the aroma while it steams for the last 5 minutes
-boom you got a meal
What about the clean up you ask…
Just throw away the foil and dump the water in the pot.
There are endless variations of this. So go crazy, kids, just watch out for that steam- it’s hot.
First visit at Whitman Walker Clinic in DC for medical transition!
if you’re all interested in how to go about transitioning there…
It’s so so cool seeing the progress submissions you’re sending in.
I’ve had quite a few questions about nutrition and what might a really good diet look like.
This article nailed it.
I may post my meal plan, which is super simple and not total garbage, but not quite on the level of the gentleman that wrote this article.
