Almost half way there!
Today was a little different since it was Veteran’s Day – which means I had a day off from work. I didn’t have to worry about crazy meetings getting in the way of my food schedule! I started the day off with breakfast – Greek Yogurt, apples and cinnamon. OMG – this is the best combo. Especially with those delicious honey crisp apples that have become popular. After a little digesting and some chores around the house, I attacked Pilates Fix Extreme. I like this one a lot – except for the part where you’re on your hands and knees. It kills my wrists. I celebrated with a chocolate Shakeology when I was done.
Lunch was a salad with chicken and a plain piece of bread. (2 green, 1 red, 1 orange, 1 yellow).
Dinner. This was an absolute winner!! I picked up some wild caught cod at Costco (plug here for wild caught fish…it’s so much better for you!! Avoid the farmed fish – and absolutely avoid Tilapia…look it up – this is a fish that eats nasty stuff and becomes pretty unhealthy for you). Anyway…back to my cod…I wanted to do something a little more interesting that just broiling it. I used this recipe as my inspiration:
I made some changes to make it Fix friendly and for personal preference. I still had a blue container, so I took advantage of that for cheese. I also used my 2 tsps for pesto. I may have used a little more pesto, but I definitely didn’t use all of a blue for cheese – so I consider it even. Here’s the step by step of what I did:
- Line a baking sheet with foil – quick spray of cooking spray.
- Put portions of fish on the baking sheet. Sprinkle each piece with some Parmesan cheese. Broil until fish is done (will vary depending on thickness of fish).
- Take the fish out of the oven, spread some pesto on each piece. Top with chopped tomatoes. I topped each piece of fish with some fresh ground pepper and a squeeze of lemon. Then, another sprinkle of cheese.
- Back in the oven on broil until the tomatoes are charred (this is where I deviated from the recipe – they suggested leaving the tomatoes fresh. I thought broiling the tomatoes was perfect).
I served the above with some quinoa and some broccoli. (1 red, 1 blue, 1 green, 1 yellow, 2 tsp).
Seriously, the fish was sooo good. I’m already looking forward to having the leftovers for dinner tomorrow.
