Nutritious fish soup with basmati rice
 Yes, I know... Nursing mother, no dieting. I did just a lil healthy dieting sort of to lose only 2 kg and fit into a dress. After that, continued eating my everything all join o.

Before trying this soups, I actually went to a gym and was advised to go back home and return when baby is 6 months and above. Well, I went because I didn't know rigorous exercises affect breast milk production.

Needed to fit into
my "getting tight by the day" dress for hubby's Birthday Dinner and get togerra which  I did and was happy with my self cos even baby wasn't affected afterall. These kinds of recipes are still balanced for the whole family.
"Will look for any Eya alone pic and share, lolz.

Fish soup with vegetables is the best for weight watchers and every health conscious person. Serving with basmati rice is good, serving with wheat bread is great.

It tasted so good the kids abandoned their meals and cleared this pot of soup.
Complete recipe much later please...
Frozen croaker, washed salted and lightly fried before cooking with vegetables.

 Still frying fish with just a greased fry pan. I think soya oil and Olive pomace oil are healthy for cooking. I don't experiment with oil cos some make my heart beat too fast, would have shared which one I think is best for cooking.

 Chopped and seasoned vegetables being sauteed
Ingredients for fish stew:
  • Croaker fish
  • fresh red pepper
  • Few slices of tomatoes
  • seasoning cubes. I used one bouillon cube.
  • Runner beans
  • Onion rings
  • oil

Ingredients begin to heat up and cook 

The fish soup is emptied into a big pot so I can add water . Here the onion and beans are cooking and softening 

Added some water to cooked vegetables to make the fish stew

      Google plantain recipes in wives connection.
      Google soups on wives connection, these soups can be eaten with wheat meals.

  9. Nice one, my kinda of soup. But i think it can also be taken with boiled yam, Abi?

    1. Anonymous6/28/2014

      Oh yeah

    2. Thank you Kemi, yes, I think yam is ok.

  10. Aunt Ey green pkantsina, I can't 4 get your love for watery soups, lol. This is nice and healthy with the vegetables and fish. Someone asked if it can be eaten with yam and I think one can certainly have it wit yam, bread, Ripe or green plantain, pasta, couscous or noodles.

    1. Yes o Lizzy, watery soup all the way. Yes, I also think it can be eaten with all those and even plantain and Irish potatoes.

  11. feeding with my eyes....

  12. This is because prescription weight loss pills can have potentially harmful side effects.
