A few years ago I had decided to the gym and try become a little healthier. Of course with the gym come healthy eating and most times what we are told is healthy food is really not appealing. So in my quest to eat healthier and eat less carbs I started making this meal and I quite liked it. I’m no expert in calorie counting but I bet this is on the lower side. But what I love most about this recipe is how quite it cooks in less than 20 you could have a meal on ur table,  I guess you could serve with some steamed rice or a boiled potato but I love it on its own, it’s quite filling and tasty. Hope you will enjoy it as much as I do. HAPPY COOKING!!
