Steamed salmon with a squeeze of lemon and cranberries

I've never really counted calories but I maintain an awareness of high and low calories akin to how someone differenciates good and evil.

And that's not to say I never eat fried food.  I often do, but I'm now more aware of the consequences of cooking techniques and ingredients and make sure I get a healthy balance.

Only takes about 15 minutes to prepare and cook so it really is ideal for after gym at night.
