With all that said, I'm sure you know what I'm thinking: I loved this meal but I just wanted some pasta or something. Now, while I haven't completely banned carbs--because I don't damn want to--I'm keeping them to a minimum as in having carbs with only one meal a day no matter how small the amount.
This day in particular I'd had a sandwhich for lunch. The bread was whole grain and actually had a great carb/fiber/protien balance(12g of carbs, 4g of protein and 4g of fiber). Our pasta is whole grain as well--although against Chief's will--but I never cared for what's really one serving of pasta so in this instance, I decided to opt out for the night. You should be proud of me because bread, potatoes & pasta are my weak area. ;-)
To cook the salmon I used McCormick Herb with Lemon Seafood Rub and a sprinkle of Tony's Creole Seasoning, threw it in the oven for about 15-20 minutes at 375 degrees. For the asparagus, I rolled them around in a pan with about 1/2 tsp of olive oil & 1/2 tsp of real butter on medium high heat for about 6 minutes, sprinkled them with a little salt and pepper...done.
After finishing this meal I wanted more so I went for 4 more stalks of aparagus & a fork-full of Chief's second piece of salmon which he gave me the side eye for but hey, that's how we do!
My fitness regimen is sure lucky that I love vegetables--that's all I've got to say about that.
Low carb, low fat but still absolutely delicious.
