Yesterday I brought you a scrumptious healthy recipe for Apple Pie Larabar's. It was an instant hit. I have not had that many instant hits since my recipe for cheesy garlic cauliflower bread! That shows me that a lot of you are struggling to find healthy food like I am. I am excited to be on this journey with all of you!
I have a really hard time getting motivated to exercise. I love to walk. So walking is never a problem. It is the yoga, sit-ups, and all the other stuff I can't stand. I try really hard to have two different activities per day that will get my heart up and going. One thing I did was stop buying my groceries ahead of time. I now walk every day to the store. I have an organic market that is just two blocks away. So that isn't enough, but just getting out, makes me more energetic and I then am able to do my sit-ups and yoga. I wish I was one of those people that couldn't wait to do exercise. Since I am not, I find exercise in my daily living. Instead of taking the trolley, I walk, ride my bike etc.. When i can, I take the stairs instead of the elevator. I will get back in shape slowly but surely!
My husband is on this "get fit" journey with me too. He was afraid that none of the food would taste good. He thought giving up the bad foods meant no flavor. Healthy living does not have to be tasteless. There are plenty of yummy herbs and spices to bring out the flavors you love.
This fish dish is healthy, lite and full of natural flavors. Enjoy!
Gluten-Free Lemon Garlic and Herb Halibut
adapted from Bare Feet in the Kitchen
Makes 4 servings
1 1/2 lbs halibut
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
2 Tablespoons italian seasoning or your favorite fresh herbs
Place all the marinade ingredients in a large ziploc bag and shake or squeeze to mix. Add the fish to the bag and then seal it, removing as much air as possible. Gently squeeze to make sure all pieces are covered in the marinade. Lay the bag flat in the refrigerator and allow it to marinate for an hour or two.
Preheat the oven to broil. Line a large baking sheet with foil and then transfer the fish to the baking pan.
Broil for 8-10 minutes, depending on the thickness of your fillets.
The fish should be firm and almost flaking. I serve mine with long grain brown rice with a side spinach salad.
