This is my usual dinner - a mountain of vege, some protein, minimal or no carbs. This is not a weight-loss strategy. It's a constipation remedy.
Daaling and the children love salmon which is usually supplied by AhKongAhMah. When I do buy it, I get it from Jaya Grocer where it's fresher than Giant/Jusco/Tesco. I buy the belly/bone parts which are only RM30 /kg instead of the boneless parts which are RM80/kg!!
I've come to love cooking salmon and pumpkin together. After I pan fry the salmon, I use the residual oil to fry some dried prawns and then throw in the pumpkin and simmer till it softens.
Joseph doesn't like pumpkin so I debone the cooked salmon and put it into pasta for him. He prefers cucumber for his vege.

Daaling on the other hand doesn't fancy too much sauce. So it's just a drizzle of olive oil over the pasta for him plus the other stuff.
The girls on the other hand are still on oats porridge. So when I cut up the pumpkin, I have to put aside a small portion which I steam with some potato then blend with some salmon and add to oats. Joy will eat salmon topped on her porridge.
