Simple healthy meal.
Pizza vs Fish
So, I consider myself a healthy eater, eating as much fish and veg as possible, and that's due to the fact I do a lot of training, keeping fit, that sort of carry on, also while working long hours in a kitchen. So always busy, yet, I still make sure I eat properly, so I have plenty of energy which helps maintain a strong mind and keeps a smile on my face.
Now, I know there is a lot of people in the same boat, constantly busy, and when you get home from work, the last thing you want to do, is cook right. So you do the usual, stick the pizza in the oven, or the microwave dinner shoved into, well, the microwave. Stuff your face, then crash on the couch, falsely satisfied.
The point I'm trying to make is, In the time you heat the oven, take out the pizza etc. and place in the oven, you could easily have cooked a piece of fish, and veg(frozen even as good as fresh), and by the time the pizza is ready, you would already have finished a nutritious meal, and crashed on the couch, satisfied. Like, It's so easy to do, so much better for you, I can never understand when people say "just don't have the time mate." Well to me that's bull, the hard part is buying the produce, and if you want to feel better, look better, eating healthy is the man, and I'm going to cook my dinner now, and show you how easy and quick it is to do.
- Piece of fish, any ( salmon, mackerel, trout, hake, cod etc.) Here we are using sole.
- Fresh veg, or frozen. I love fresh broccoli, cant get enough.
- Baby potatoes, or brown rice, your choice.
- Lemon wedge
- Salt, pepper and olive oil
15 minute healthy meal
Ok, now let's say, your just in the door, your hungry, and your new years resolutions promises are slapping your brain eagerly with reminders of the promise you made to eat healthier. So your going to do it, but want it pretty quick, follow these steps as I'm doing the same at the moment.
Step 1. Take of you jacket, go straight to the kitchen avoiding the couch, take out a pot, fill with water, little salt, stick on the stove and heat. Now you're going to use that for either, Baby potatoes ( as I am now) rice or Fresh/ Frozen Veg. What ever you feel like. Then, preheat your oven to 180 degrees.
Step 2. Using a pan, rub a little butter on to it, you can use any type of healthy oil if you like. Lay you piece of fish on to it, in my case today, I have 3 pieces of sole I defrosted(bought a load of it last week, was so cheap) but I normally eat salmon, and I also leave the skin on, no problem, when the fish is cooked you can scrape of and leave to the side or eat it like I do. Squeeze a little lemon or lime over the fish, and a wedge on it too. Now maybe have a quick shower while your potatoes or rice is cooking.
Step 3. Place the pan in the oven, cook the fish, 9 to 10 minutes depending on size, check your veg or rice to time them together. Now to save time(and clean up) I've just added my veg in with my potatoes, which took approximately 10 minutes to cook . Veg takes no more than 3 minutes.
Step 4. Strain the veg, mash your potatoes if you like, add a little salt, take out cooked fish, place everything on the plate, squeeze a little citrus over the fish and veg, and there you go, eat away and enjoy.
