Champion Performance Recipe of the Week! Skillet Veggies - Competition Diet Friendly, Tastebud Love!

I'll tell you a secret. It's a big one. Ready?

{My competition diet food tastes good.}

Yep. No lie. 
During my last prep, I shared with you my sanity-saving Tilapia Burgers. This prep, I'm keeping my kitchen time to a minimum, so I'm simply baking my fish. I've stuck with Swai this time around, and you can see how I cook it here. Easy peasy. 

The rest of my diet stars Asparagus and Kale. Huh. That can get old fast, right? So I dug into my foodie-brain, came up with a list of "free" veggies & stuff I could complement A & K with, and started playing. And may I just say... you're welcome. Truly, this skillet is amazing! It's so good that I don't need hotsauce or mustard for my fish. Yeah.  Again, you're welcome.
