Eating healthy or “light” does not mean eating without flavor. By having some vegetables in the fridge and some protein (chicken, fish, seafood, etc.) they can make a delicious, nutritious meal that does not add extra pounds … especially after these Christmas dates where we have literally eaten “everything”.
I prepared this dish like this: I sautéed in 2 tablespoons of olive oil, half chopped onion, a garlic, a handful of peas, a handful of sweet corn, a carrot which I cut into slabs with a potato peeler.
Separately cut a garlic into pieces and with 1 teaspoon of olive oil sauté it, and add the shrimp or chicken or whatever you have on hand. In this case the shrimp, add salt and pepper and a little chopped parsley to give it more flavor … at the end a splash of lemon and then mix everything.

They can accompany it with 1/2 cup of rice or whole wheat pasta or toast.
Do not worry about the consumption of olive oil other than thinking that it can make us fat, it does us good, it is monounsaturated fat that lowers bad cholesterol, it is an antioxidant (it prevents cell death and therefore delays aging) and also favors absorption. calcium, and thus countless other benefits for our health.
