So since going a bit low carb about a month ago I’ve lost a few kilograms and now I’m switching to a low fat way of eating and trying to focus on small portion sizes. Tonight’s salmon red curry uses all low fat products and was delicious.
- Salmon fillet with grapeseed oil rubbed in
- Brussels sprouts cut in half
- Kale 2 leaves
- Red curry paste
- Light coconut milk
- No fat natural yoghurt
- Rice with quinoa
- Almond flakes and pine nuts
- Bake the salmon in a benchtop oven at 200 °C for 15 minutes
- Microwave the halved Brussels sprouts for 90 seconds and then sautée in a frying pan with the kale, mint and parsley until wilted
- Add some cooked rice and quinoa
- Add 100 mL light coconut milk with a dessert spoon of red curry paste
- Add a handful of nuts
- Add a tablespoon of no fat natural yoghurt
- Serve in a bowl
- Shoot a photograph
- Write the recipe
- Blog (verb)
I’m hoping the switch will work and will be more healthful. I won’t be eating a lot of breads because I’ve noticed they make me feel bloated. I’ll also continue to eat good fats like eggs and avocado but I’ll try to reduce the portion sizes. What is good is that salmon is probably an ideal protein and I’ll have to get used to skinless chicken.
