and I came home with dinner.
Don’t worry…I got the shoes too! I was so excited to hear that Target was carrying this hip Italian line. Thanks for the tip Lauren!
I’m not usually a sneaker girl, but I think I can carry these off.
And here’s the dinner:
Cod is a great source of protein as well as vitamin B12, selenium and phosphorus. Cod also contains omega 3 fatty acids, although not as much as sardines or salmon.
Cauliflower is loaded with vitamin C, vitamin K, beta carotene and choline. Oh, and it’s super versatile. Here’s a post I wrote last Spring: Like a great pair of skinny jeans…
Greens like spinach contain vitamins A and C, important skin nutrients. Soft, leafy greens absorb pesticides really easily so buy organic when possible.
So here’s your list for Target:
Simply Balanced frozen cod, Kerrygold butter, cauliflower crumbles and organic spinach. (Be sure to check if they have some cute shoes!)
And here’s what you should already have on hand in your pantry: High quality olive oil (I like Kasandrinos), coconut flour, pink Himalayan salt, and any other seasonings you want to use on the breading for the fish. If you don’t have coconut flour, you could use almond flour or even just grind some nuts in the blender or food processor.until they make nice crumbs
This is what I did…
I thawed the cod according to the directions on the package, then used a paper towel to blot it dry. I placed it on a lightly greased baking sheet (I just used some of the butter) then topped with pats of butter and some coconut flour that I had seasoned with pink Himalayan salt, freshly ground pepper, and a little smoked paprika and cayenne pepper to give it a nice kick. I measured nothing.
The directions on the cod said to bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes. I kept it in a few minutes longer than that because I wanted the topping a little crispier.
About the coconut flour…I love to season it and use it as a grain free breading for meat and fish. It can also be used for baking, but it’s kind of a pain in the ass…you need recipes specifically for coconut flour.
While the cod was in the oven, I cooked the cauliflower in my favorite Kasandrinos Olive Oil and seasoned with nothing but pink Himalayan salt. The olive oil is so delicious that I wanted that flavor to stand out.
The spinach was quickly cooked in my favorite olive oil too. Love the flavor and love knowing that it is genuine EVOO!
So, can an easy meal like this help you feel happy, healthy and hot? Of course it can!
You will be happy because it is so easy and delicious. And even happier if you grab a cute pair of shoes while you are out shopping. As far as healthy, this meal has a great mix of high quality protein, good fat, and nutrient dense veggies. It is very satiating which can help you maintain and even lose weight. That same protein and fat, along with the vitamin C, are essential for healthy glowing skin. With your great skin and healthy body, you’ll definitely be hot!
