Preheat the oven at 450 degrees and toss a 1/2 lb of quartered red potatoes in a ziploc bag with 1/2 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon of minced garlic (from jar), and salt and pepper (to taste). Place the potato wedges on an oiled pan and heat them in the oven for 40 minutes. Flip the potatoes every 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, warm a 1/4 teaspoon of minced garlic in 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil in a saute pan. Then, add a layer of pre-chopped brussels sprouts and halved grape tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper and cook over medium heat. Stir frequently until you reach a desired char.

During the last 10 minutes on the potatoes timer, slice 1 lb of thawed mahi (found in the Trader Joes frozen section) into 1 inch strips and toss (1 at a time) into a ziploc bag with 1 cup of almond flour and a blend of salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Place the strips on an oiled pan and cook them in the broiler (low heat) until the internal temperature reaches 170 (5-7 minutes).
