I have been trying really hard to eat healthy since my relocation to the U.S. Everyone thinks I would eventually add weight, thanks to the high level of processed foods and fat. But eating healthy here is very possible, you just have to be determined and plan your meals. It requires putting some thought into what you eat. Anyways, I have been eating healthy and exercising. This is one of my fast and easy healthy food mostly eaten for supper.
Pineapples cut into small wedges
A teaspoon of butter
Frozen mixed vegetables ( broccoli, carrots, peas, green beans, cauliflower, sweetcorn)
Diced bell pepper
Diced onions (optional)
Pre-heat the oven to 475 degrees F
Marinate the tilapia fish with the above listed spices in a bowl for 5 minutes
Put a teaspoon of oil or non-stick cooking spray into a oven dish or an aluminum foil bowl
Transfer the fish into an oven dish or aluminum foil bowl
Put the half teaspoon of the butter on each side of the fish
Place the pineapple wedge on the butter ( A good substitute is lemon)
Add the mixed vegetables and bell peppers to the bowl, let it surround the fish
Add some salt and pepper to the mixed vegetables
Cover the bowl with aluminum foil to ensure the food cooks evenly and stays moist
Put it in the oven for 25 minutes, flip the fish over after the first 15 minutes.
Serve hot with a glass of cold water or freshly squeezed orange juice.
This meal can be easily cooked within 30 minutes ( 5 minutes to prep, 25 minutes for cook time), it is very filling. It can be made for family, spouse and or individual consumption. Eating healthy is very important to living a very long and disease free life. I really like the taste of pineapple with fish, I hope you like it too.
Tip: You can put it in the microwave for 2 minutes after cooking if you want it to be crisp.
