Favorite HCG meal so far...

As we continue down the HCG diet path, I have tried MANY different recipes. We aren't allowed to cook with any oil, sweeteners, spices with MSG or starches. I've really enjoyed this "cleaner" way of eating. Don't let yourself believe that that means I'm not really really really craving sweets and breads- cause believe me, I AM.
The other night I tried this. (Kat, I apologize, I told you the wrong seasoning). It was very yummy, even though Scott is NOT a fan of cooked tomatoes.
Here's what you will need...
2 lemons, for juice
1 cup grape tomatoes, slice in half
2 cups spinach, cut in pieces
1/2 onion, chopped
3-4 tilapia (I do 3, because the girls split one)
Cajun seasoning
First, saute the onions in the juice of 1 lemon. Once the onions are clear, place the tilapia on top of the onions. Sprinkle with the Cajun seasoning, then do the other side. Grill the fish until golden brown on both sides. Dump the tomatoes and the spinach over the fish. Add the juice of the second lemon and cover. Check it after 5 minutes, but you might need to leave it on as long as 10. Don't go beyond the 10 or the color starts to brown.
Serve. (The girls get either rice or a potato on the side. We could have a Melba toast, but didn't).

Scott told me about the MSG. That is very sad :(
