As cooking is not my specialty, I prefer easy healthy recipes. I do not always share them but because there is a first time for everything, I decided to give it a try. Enjoy it!
So here I am at home, recovery. Since I knew I was going to stay low for sometime, I made sure my freezer was filled with prepared protein sources for as good as the first month after the surgery. It is not because I cannot spend hours in the kitchen cooking bulk as I normally do that I am going to slack off. My nutrition goes way beyond the fact that I want to be in shape physically. Without an adequate intake one makes room for avoidable conditions and diseases and I am not up for that!
As it is not only protein that we need, I am cooking here and there grains and vegetables to add some color, and carbohydrates, to my meals.
Yesterday for instance, I had chicken with pineapple and quinoa. I have to admit that I surprised myself with the results.
For today, I felt like cooking some asparagus for lunch to eat with the delicious tilapia I made following Skinnytaste’s recipe. As it was a little late to make it in oven, I decided to fry them. This is how my meal looked like with the addition of beetroot, another one of my favorite anti-inflammatory foods.
Here is the recipe of the pan-fried asparagus.
My boyfriend bought me some asparagus last week and I used one package (200g) for this recipe.
I used only dry condiments because they allow me to spend less time cooking. Real onions and garlic would surely taste my better, but it will be for when I am 100% again.
The result was simply out of this world!!!!
- 200g green asparagus
- 2 tablespoons of butter or olive oil to fry (I used an organic alternative)
- Himalayan salt
- Black pepper
- Garlic (I used garlic powder)
- Onions (I used shallot powder)
- Stir the condiments. The onions should look golden, not brown.
- Add the asparagus and let them cook for 10 minutes turning to ensure even cooking.
- I did not include the measurements because it varies according to your preference.
- Also note that Himalayan salt is not so strong as the traditional table one, so you might need to add a little bit more of it to taste.
- Enjoy it!
Do you eat asparagus regularly? Do you have any easy healthy recipe that you would like to share?
I have to admit that I only added asparagus to my regular diet when I was going through Bikini Contest preparations. At first it was a nightmare because of the quantity, but sincerely, I felt in love with it after a while. Asparagus are an excellent addition to any diet. They taste delicious and are perfect anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant food.
I hope you will enjoy this recipe. And let me know it if I passed the test as a first timer #WIAW blogger.
Enjoy your meal!
