#Mommy on the Short Order Tip!

#Mommy Mia!

I love my Mommy! Many have tried, few have succeeded…My first dinner entry is this: Crusted lemon pepper pan seared Tilapia filets with sliced lemon, buttered toast topped with garden fresh rosemary and spaghetti pasta in a garlic sauce with cherry tomatoes and broccoli garnished with feta cheese.

#Mommy is a self described short order cook. All my life, she has made amazing meals that don’t have names. Now that I’m doing this site, all of them will eventually get one. I went in. I went hard and fast. Probably set a #HerculesHercules record for how quickly I smashed this. That’s what I do, I sit on the bench when it comes to food cause I don’t play games.

Pros

Tilapia is an amazing source of protein! It is also low in saturated fat, calories, carbohydrates and sodium. Tilapia contains Vitamin B12, Potassium and others. And although as not as much as trout and tuna, Tilapia does contain heart healthy Omega-3 fatty acids. Ounce for ounce, it is a fantastic fish to eat.

Cons

This is a pretty hearty meal as you can see, weighing in at about 50% of my DV. This is my last meal of the day, and because I eat a relatively low calorie but high protein breakfast as my first meal, I’m still about 400 calories or more under the DV. If you were being careful, you might want to just have one of the filets and or have half a piece of toast. Also, Tilapia contains the less favorable Omega-6 fatty acids, which is debatable on its health benefits and risks. Moderation, people. Moderation.
