Happy Monday fellow foodies! Do you love the start of a new week just as much as I do? It has something fresh and easy going and deludes you with the feeling you’d have so much time to go… until the next week, presentation, exams. And then with a sudden crash you notice: the presentation is today, your first exam will be written on Saturday and you have not reviewed a single page for this one yet and all that’s left to do to stop this unpleasant sensation in your tummy is to sit down and share a recipe, remembering the pure bliss of when everything just comes together.
ingredients for 2 portions (whats better than leftovers?)
- 1 can tuna
- 1 cup brown rice (cooked)
- 1/2 ripe avocado
- 3 cups mixed baby greens (you could use baby spinach as well)
- 4 stalks green asparagus
- 2 tsps olive oil
- 1/2 lemon
- salt and pepper
- 1 tbsp slivered almonds
The preparation will not take you more than 10 minutes. Drain the tuna, mix it up with the rice and avocado, until you got a nice mushy texture. Season with lemon juice, salt and pepper. Heat one teaspoon of olive oil in a pan. Divide each stalk of asparagus in 4 pieces (throw away the hard end) and fry them for 2 minutes with some sea salt sprinkled on top. Wash the baby greens and combine them with the rice mush and asparagus in a pretty bowl. Dress with 1 tsp of olive oil and some more lemon juice, mix thoroughly and top of with some slivered almonds.
There you go. A healthy, filling salad which can be brought to work or class and will stop this weird sensation in your tummy. Stressful times do not have to result in junk food feasts. Eating clean will calm you down and help concentrate on the tasks ahead.
