Wow – for such a low calorie Dinner, this is rammed packed with beautiful flavours! Sea Bass is a beautiful fish. Firm, meaty, an elegant flavour and not too fishy. But layer on some buttery and chive New Potatoes, tasty carrots and the unmistakable bite of Asparagus and you have a super healthy yet indulgent plate that excites the tastebuds. But wait, there’s more. I absolutely love these Baby Sweetfire Beetroots. Sweet, spicy, smoky and tangy – amazing. Who’s says healthy food can’t compete with hyper-palatable high calorie meals? You get a nice helping of protein and carbs, whilst leaving some fat spare for another meal. And as you’ve been so good, treat yourself to some 70% Dark Chocolate dipped in Almond Butter (mmmm!). If you want a smaller portion, drop to one Sea Bass Fillet, 20g butter and plate up 200g of New Potatoes and save 220 calories.

- New Potatoes – 285g

Sea Bass is low in calories and an excellent source of protein, selenium, essential omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins B-12 and B-6. Beetroot is a good source of iron, nitrates, betaine, magnesium and other antioxidants, in addition to helping lower blood pressure and boost exercise performance. You get a great portion of indigestible fibre and prebiotic benefits for your guts’ microbiome (i.e. feeding the beneficial bacteria), that come with Asparagus. Asparagus also contains folate, vitamins A, C, E and K, as well as chromium, a trace mineral that can enhance the transport of blood sugar into your cells. Carrots are a rich source of Beta carotene – a powerful antioxidant that can also be converted into vitamin A in the body to help maintain healthy skin.
