So. Cooking. It is something that I have’t done a lot of recently. I have been stressed, down, sluggish. I had some health issues and just went off good food. Mcdonalds became my only desire. But a 1 day H20 Detox REALLY kicked my arse back into being me.
Doing an H2O detox, or a juice detox, is bloody hard. But it is so worth it. It leaves me headachy for two days but by the third its like my system is rebooted and I am focussed and energetic and renewed. After the 24 hour fast I strip my diet back. I remove Wheat, Dairy and Sugars. I still have natural fruit sugars but no added sugars.
My diet becomes mainly vegetable based and chicken becomes a special treat. I find that suddenly I have JOY in cooking again and being lucky enough to work from home I can stop to make delicious lunches. Yesterdays was no exception.
I wanted something filling. With a powerful taste. Something that would be cooked in less than 10 minutes and wouldn’t leave me bloated in the morning. In my fridge I found Samphire which I had bought to add a saltiness to an omelette and a pack of wild mushrooms. I find mushrooms quite filling and rich so figured a good base to my lunchtime treat.
Anyway. Samphire is a great accompaniment for fish. Fish loves lemon. So I figured a simple sauté in some goats butter (which is what I use if I need a bit of butteriness) and then served with a good squeeze of lemon and some black pepper would result in a pretty fine lunch.
It took me 10 minutes. I didn’t chop anything. I flung it all in the pan. Then I shoved it on a plate. Then I ate it.
It was delicious. Healthy AND if you are doing something like a points system on weight watchers, its about 2 points for the butter. You could actually sauté in water if you wanted a 0 point dinner.
Anyway. Amazebaubles and all that.
Oh, I thought after I made this. IF you are male and need a bit of animal or something served on this, it would be heaven with a bit of Seabass OR even a Lamb Steak.
Now. Go away. I am hungry.
