- 1 1/2 lbs carrot, sliced
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
Steam or boil carrots in salted water for 10-15 minutes until they are tender-crisp and drain.
Heat butter, honey and lemon juice in a heavy skillet for about 2 minutes or until hot and bubbly, stirring often.
Add carrots; cook uncovered 4-7 minutes or until they are glazed, stirring frequently.

Nobody has commented on my health concerns?
I'm not training at the moment just sparring.
But there are a few things I'm eating that are keeping my weight down, I'm actually nice and trim because of these foods.
I made a dish yesterday.
Atlantic Salmon darnes fried in lemon and extra virgin olive oil.
They were the business!
Had some whole wheat pasta with em and a side of potato salad.
No need for any fatty sauces because of the lemon.
How to eat well
Italian marinaded chicken
A lightly buttered Asiago Bread
Honey glazed steamed carrots
Green Pepper with a honey dijon sauce
That was dinner last night,and I was the cook,no eating out
Light on the carbs,mid realm on fat,lots of vitamins(allways steam your veggies,or eat them raw,you lose vitamins if you boil them)
A cheap and easy hony dijon sauce
And trust me,you can dip almost anything in this,and it tastes like heaven
One tablespoon Heinz Spicy Brown Mustard
One tablespoon Guldens mustard
3 Teaspoons honey
Stir it up,,and dip cheese or raw veggies
When I was training for asthetics or even MMA, a friend of mine who is a pro bodybuilder and personal trainer taught me that his nutrition success was predicated on making his body a science project... He was willing to pay the price of eating at the expense of getting the results he needed even if it was tasteless and bland..
When he hung out or did the night life or etc, he had a cooler full of bag of salad, boiled chix breast, hardboil eggs raw baked potato... he just ate to give his body what it needed.. Without regard for flavor
So at times in my training i did the same thing just to get the results I needed.. And looked forward to my cheat day on Sunday were I splurged and ate the wings, pizza or burger.. while still making sure I ate the healthy calories I needed

Boiled chicken is meant to be the business.
It's also reputed to be tasteless though.
Much as I like eating that stuff though, I really do feel a difference in my body almost instantly. I think I have trained my body to expect good food, and now when I do eat lots of that crapolla stuff, I think it sorta tries to tell me..."Dude...wtf?!?!"
