A Light Lunch
Well today I had a five mile walk by the lakeside and I hate to spoil all that calorie burning work with a lunch that is too heavy. The lake made me want fish and the walk made me want something with the good carbs that would also be healthy. And so the sweet potato is the answer.
With just a whisper of olive oil in a small skillet, I placed a tilapia fillet lightly dusted with flour, salt, pepper and smokey paprika in it, on high heat. For just two and a half minutes on each side I let the fillet sear. During that time I chucked a medium sweet potato in the microwave on high power for five minutes. With a garnish of fresh sliced scallion, lunch was light, lovely, and ready to be devoured. That walk, and the smells of good food made me pretty hungry. I am so thankful to be blessed with good health and this good food to eat that will keep me that way for another day.
