Slow-Roasted Cod with Avocado Salsa Verde and Pomegranate

I am beyond excited to jump back on the healthy eating and exercise bus of 2018! As we all know, the holidays just bustle with comforting, rich, heavy foods and it’s just tough to avoid it and keep that holiday cheer haha. The new year brings new goals, accomplishments and challenges. When I heard that Bobby Flay was releasing a healthy cookbook, I just jumped on my Amazon app stat! He is the king of bold flavors so I knew I couldn’t lose with his amazing recipes. This is the first recipe I’ve tried from Bobby Flay Fit and my husband and I were absolutely satisfied with the result. It’s definitely a different take on cod that I’ve never tried before, and the pomegranate seeds were a unique addition! They added a nice pop and slightly sweet contrast to the spice and acidity. Just made a few minor tweaks (used olive oil instead of canola and didn’t use salt to season the avocado salsa verde) but other than that perfecto! Not only is it fresh and delicious, but it’s so simple and quick to throw together. Buy this book ASAP!!!

Garlic Lime Shrimp-Stuffed Avocado

My hubby and I love shrimp tacos but sometimes we want a low-carb option. I created this recipe so that we can enjoy the rich, fresh flavors of shrimp tacos without the tortilla. They are so yummy! They are also a great recipe for the spring and summer seasons, light yet very tasty, especially with the creamy avocado scooped up with each bite!

Avocado Cream Cheese Bagel

This is one of mine and my hubby Dane’s go-to, super easy, and satisfying breakfasts! We were inspired by one of his work buds who would always have a slice of this bagel ready for him in the morning. You can enjoy it as breakfast, brunch or a light snack, and even better if you split with a friend. Enjoy it before work or school this week!

MMMMMM….tuna….

I had planned to make a fun dinner for my family with a tuna tartare “appetizer”. However the tuna was so filling, I saved the rest of the dinner for the next night! I fried up some wontons to go along with it and we had ourselves a meal!

This meal was perfect for my husband who has kidney disease and could even satisfy my daddy who has diabetes. I read that the American Diabetes Association and the American Heart Association recommend that you should include fish in your meal plan two or three times a week. So this recipe rocks!
