HELP! I have been getting so bored with some of my food. I don't eat meat, but I eat seafood. What are some of your quick go to recipes, or meals you cook during your weekly meal prep?

I don't think I understand the question. Isn't seafood a type of meat?

Hi I would post this in the recipes thread.
Also tuna is great and there are heaps of recipes for it. Just google lowfat tuna recipes and I am sure you will find plenty. Atlantic salmon baked or panfried with boiled small whole potato, or baked sweet potato or a green salad. :)

I have a sick obsession with this dish and it is only 320 calories per serving.
INGREDIENTS
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 16-ounce package shelf-stable gnocchi, (see Tip)
1 medium yellow onion, thinly sliced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup water
6 cups chopped chard leaves, (about 1 small bunch) or spinach
1 15-ounce can diced tomatoes
1 15-ounce can white beans, rinsed
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese


I only use the gnocchi, garlic, spinach and kale, tomatoes, beans, and mozzarella but it is truly AMAZING to eat and colorful. I can't help but to eat ALL of it when I make it (not in one sitting though! it makes 6 servings!) You could even through shrimp in there and it'd taste great.

tuna and brown rice is one of my staples.
I drain a can of tuna, add soy sauce, rice vinegar, and mirin (or a dash of sweetener i.e., honey or sugar)
mix my tuna, add a cup of brown rice and chopped up green onions.. It's super cheap and very tasty! You can also add a little bit of mayo if you like.. Filling and less then 450 calories!
sometimes i add chopped cucumber and grape tomatoes

Earlier this week I threw together this. 1 Pkg bay scallops, in frypan with a bit of coconut oil. Saute until white. added a can of diced tomatoes, a few spices, a little water to thin some mushrooms (only had canned in house). and put it over Shirataki noodles. My husband doesnt like the Shirataki noodles so I put his over whole wheat. It was pretty good and fast.

I also take greenshell mussels (frozen) and put them in a pot with a tight lid, some water, some light smart balance, garlic a chopped up roma tomato and then steam 10 minutes I put it over the Shirataki noodles also.

Ahi tuna, I cant stand it just seared but I put it in a fry pan with a bit of coconut oil and some spices...takes just a few minutes add an veggie on the side and yum.

TVP is a quick go to. Just rehydrate, and add to a pasta sauce use over pasta or rice. Use in lasagna. Anywhere a recipe calls for ground beef use tvp.
