It’s kind of boring. Just a plain white fish.
But cod is amazing for you. And super versatile.
And the fact that it’s boring is actually a good thing.
The taste is so mild that it takes on the flavor of whatever you are cooking it with. Even people that aren’t fish lovers will usually eat cod if you prepare it right.
Cod is readily available year round. I always buy it frozen so it’s there waiting for me.
Like all fish, cod is a great source of protein. It is also rich in B vitamins, selenium (important for your skin!), iodine, and choline. It is a decent source of omega 3 fatty acids which give you glowing skin. (Salmon and my beloved sardines are better sources. Just saying.)
The other night I made Tamari and Orange Marinated Cod with Bok Choy from The Eat Fat Get Thin Cookbook by Mark Hyman, MD. I usually come up with my own recipes, but from time to time I love browsing cookbooks for inspiration.
The Asian inspired flavors were totally delicious and the whole meal came together super fast…like under 30 minutes. Easy clean up too. It said four servings. More like two to three. I’m a hungry girl apparently.
So what else can you do with cod? Well, I love to make the Greek Fish Skillet from my friend Kelly Winters at Primally Inspired, which I’ve mentioned in several other posts because it’s that good.
I also love to top it with some butter and seasoned coconut flour and just bake at 350 until it’s flaky. Another easy meal. Or butter and lemon.
So can eating cod help you feel happy, healthy and hot? Hell yeah!
You’ll be happy eating a delicious meal. All of these cod recipes are loaded with healthy ingredients and no crap. Eating this way can help you lose or maintain weight, have glowing skin, and more energy. And a fit, energetic girl with gorgeous skin is always hot!
