Because There Is A First Time For Everything

Because There Is A First Time For Everything

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.

Nutrition is one of the easiest ways to prevent and control inflammation. Foods such as fish, asparagus and beetroot form a fantastic healthy combo.

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. 

Asparagus are an excellent addition to any diet. They taste delicious and are excellent anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant food.

I only used one package 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.

Using dry condiments can speed up the cooking. Using organic alternatives is always the best choice whenever available.

Organic garlic powder, shallot powder, Himalayan salt and black pepper.

The result was simply out of this world!!!!

Ideal to eat right after cooking, these pan-fried asparagus are a healthy complement to any dish.

  1. 200g green asparagus
  2. 2 tablespoons of butter or olive oil to fry (I used an organic alternative)
  3. Himalayan salt
  4. Black pepper
  5. Garlic (I used garlic powder)
  6. Onions (I used shallot powder)
  1. Stir the condiments. The onions should look golden, not brown.
  2. Add the asparagus and let them cook for 10 minutes turning to ensure even cooking.
  1. I did not include the measurements because it varies according to your preference.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
