Martha Stewart Meal Prep – March 4

Not pictured in tupperware, but this is what I’ll be eating all week! I LOVE salmon. Not only is it extremely fast and easy to cook, it’s also delicious and nutritious! Asparagus is also fast and easy to cook. It’s the week before spring break and I have a million and one things to do, so I need fast and easy (but healthy) food in my life!

20130326-141500.jpg

The hoisin-honey-lime salmon recipe is from Martha Stewart (I left out the couscous).

I used the garlic roasted asparagus recipe from Dinner Dishes & Desserts!

Seriously takes less than 20 minutes to cook this meal. If you say you don’t have time to cook and be healthy, you’re lying! I’d say going to the store and cleaning up takes the most time, not cooking itself.
