The past Sunday for me was one of revisiting my roots. That meant my Jamaican culinary side of things. I did by indulging in a delicious stew peas – Jamaican style. And for those who are aware of this sumptuous meal, you know how calorie laden it is.But, who can resist?
When it comes to my diet, I believe in a fine balance. That’s the reason why I took the opportunity to redeem myself and went on the light side of things. Thus, for Monday supper, I prepared a quick and easy spread that consisted of:
1. Pan-seared salmon with capers/olives brushed with a ginger and soy sauce
2. Mashed sweet potatoes with a dollop of sour cream and sprinkle of cinnamon
3. Garlic spinach
4. Avocado (nature’s butter)
5. Pickled cucumber
I completed my omega fatty acids meal by sipping on a refreshing yet light wine (Moscato)by Barefoot Wine. Moscato is an inexpensive sweet and crisp wine. It complemented my fish meal very well. By the way, this wine also pairs very well with a fruit and cheese plate.
My heart healthy meal warmed my heart and kept me satiated. I’m happy!
