Quick and Cool

It’s hot.
I don’t want to heat up the kitchen in this small apartment (which would instantly turn every room into a sauna), and I’m sick of grilling in the rain. As much as I love these fantastic thunderstorms, grilling in a raincoat isn’t fun.

So while at Trader Joes (back on that kick, they take the guesswork out of healthy eating) I browsed the aisles and determined on fish tacos.

I broiled the pre-marinated Garlic Chili tilapia in the toaster oven for about 12 minutes.

While that was going I microwaved corn on the cob, still in the husk, with a damp paper towel for about six minutes.


When the corn was done (the fish was halfway cooked at this point) I popped some refried beans in the microwave. Those were cooking, fish was cooking, corn was cooling, so I used those three minutes to slice an avocado, and heat up some corn tortillas on the stove. I just toss those babies on the bare burner.



The ingredients on the Trader Joes beans: beans, water, salt. Ingredients on the tortillas: corn, water, lime. Perfection. Who needs the extra junk?


This was plated and ready in about 15 minutes.

Tomorrow is the last day of my Advocare challenge, I’m actually sad it’s over because I’m so in love with the results and my diet changes.
