So here's a little something quick and tasty I whipped up before going to the gym the other night!
Instead of giving up something for lent, I am aiming to TAKE UP exericse, that's right, reversing the tradition!
As a coeliac I feel I have already had to give up enough food-wise, so taking something up seemed like a far better and more positive action.
I needed a healthy and high-protein meal to eat before my legs, bums and tums class, nothing too big to be bouncing round in my belly!
So here's what I made for my pre gym meal/snack...
Curried Quinoa with Salmon
Asparagus and brocolli - (steam the brocolli for 10 minutes and the asparagus for 6 before serving)
Salt and pepper
- Bake the salmon fillet in the oven according to cooking instructions, with a little olive oil and salt and pepper for seasoning.
- Place the quinoa in a saucepan of cold water - approximately 1 part quinoa to 5 parts water.
- Bring to the boil, add a teaspoon or two of curry powder and simmer until all the water has evaporated (around 10 minutes)
- Serve all together with the salmon and vegetables - it really is as simple as that!
