21 DFX – Day 10

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:

Parmesan-Fish-6

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:

  1.  Line a baking sheet with foil – quick spray of cooking spray.
  2. 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).
  3. 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.
  4. 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).

Dessert:  Apples.

Seriously, the fish was sooo good.  I’m already looking forward to having the leftovers for dinner tomorrow.
