Some times I think too much when it comes to food. Just because it’s simple doesn’t mean it’s not delicious. When it comes to eating a lean and clean diet things can become SUPER boring. But as summer is sneaking up on us it’s time to do some simple, cold, fast and healthy meals.
If you are training or just working on losing a bit of extra weight you may be eating 5-6 small meals a day.
This is a perfect protein meal.
Wasting food is a tragedy to me. So much food is thrown away everyday. Just wasted!
Here is a way to use every little bit of your fresh broccoli!
After you have cut the broccoli florets off of your fresh broccoli, you will have those thick broccoli stalks left.
Do Not Throw Them Away!
Instead, peel them with a vegetable peeler and then shred the stalks with your grater. This is a perfect add in for some simple Water Packed Tuna and a bit of olive oil and lemon juice. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!
Here are the simplistic instructions of what we did:
4 ounces solid white albacore tuna packed in spring water, drained
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1 cup peeled and shredded broccoli stalk
Salt and pepper to taste
(You can add a little nonfat Greek yogurt or a teaspoon of mayonnaise if you want it creamy. Or avocado!)
Mix it all together. That’s it.
I had a slice of whole grain organic bread on the side.
It’s not gourmet. But it’s healthy, simple, and filling.
Try it as a post workout meal. It’s good fuel for muscle recovery!
