I thought about just nibbling on some salad or eat a boiled egg or two, but I knew that those would not satisfy. That's when I remembered that I had transferred some frozen shrimp to the fridge to thaw. Bingo!
I cut and washed the baby bok choy thoroughly. If you don't wash it well, you may end up biting into some gritty sand. Yuck. I coated it with coconut oil, crushed garlic and red pepper flakes. Then I put it in a glass pan and put it under the broiler to roast.
While I had that going, I rinsed the shrimp and also added pepper flakes, black pepper and garlic. I let that sit while I cut up some asparagus and began to sautee them in some olive oil. At this point I checked on the bok choy and popped a lid on the asparagus to speed up the cooking a bit. When the asparagus were starting to get tender, I added the shrimp and gave it a stir. I put the lid back on and let them all finish cooking for about 5 minutes.
Marco really enjoyed it and I did too. It was filling and I know that it's good for me. Victory again! One day at a time. =)
