After a detox, I usually ease into regular eating habits by preparing meals that have little to no seasoning. This is preferable and a great way to test your creativity with cooking by limiting your use of processed foods, condiments and additives. Fish and vegetables always hits the mark, full of vitamins,healthy and flavorful.
Clean eating by definition, is the consumption of whole foods as close to their natural state as possible. This involves including in your diet, vegetables, fresh fruits, whole grains, lean protein and avoiding processed foods and fast food. I love seafood, but I am careful to pick wild caught options as opposed to farm raised – more information on the diferences here. This dish is easy and quick to prepare approximately 15 minutes, I hope you try it, especially since it’s low in calories.
