Low calorie, high protein dinner!

Do you ever have those nights where you feel like there is nothing in the house to cook? The best thing to do when that happens is just start pulling out whatever healthy random things you DO have and just make something up! This was my story tonight. So I ended up with tilapia, romaine lettuce, onion, a carrot, lime and a bag of steamer edamame.

I left the Romaine lettuce whole, filled then with chopped onion, long sliced carrots (so one carrot would go further) and a good amount of steamed edamame peas.... peas?
I know their soybeans, but I always want to call them peas. 

Next, season the tilapia with your favorite Mrs. Dash
(0 carbs, 0 calories, 0 sodium).

Grille fish on medium high heat 3-4 minutes, flip, continue cooking until flaky. Lay fish into romaine boats and
squeeze an insane amount of lime juice all over it.... :)

This meal was about 300-340 calories for two boats.

Fun fact about edamame "peas"....
1 cup has
12 grams complete protein
130 calories
6 grams fiber
10 grams carbs
Tons of B Vitamins
Vitamins C, K, calcium, phosphorus and potassium.
Eat up!
