So… this is my first recipe post! I’m really excited to start sharing the recipes I’ve come up with over the years. There are lots of healthy foods that I make on frequent rotation because they’re so easy and delicious, and I’ll be posting them alongside my workouts and nutrition posts. (I’m hoping to improve my photography skills also!)
I’d like to share at least one nutritional benefit of each meal before the recipe, because I believe you should be proud of what you put on your plate. You should eat each bite knowing what it will do FOR you, not TO you (or your thighs). Food is a necessity, so make the best of your choices! There are so many options for delicious and nutritious meals. It’s time to toss the junk and embrace natural flavors.
A 4oz tilapia fillet has about 150 calories and 28g of protein. It is high in vitamin B-12 and potassium, and is a good source of Omega 3s. However, be sure to get wild fish whenever possible. Farmed fish is significantly lower in Omega 3s due to the non-organic soy and corn the fish are fed. (Wild is better than farmed in almost every animal protein source for this reason and many more)
This is a simple recipe for perfect baked tilapia with some flavorful rice, suited for a post-workout meal. Omit the rice and add broccoli for an easy low-carb dinner.
