My husband and our lead staff are doing a diet right now called the Beast Challenge. They are basically competing to see who can have the greatest body transformation in 21 days. The competition never stops on our staff.
The diet basically excludes all things tasty in life. Low salt, no sugar, high protein, very little carbs (only Ezekiel bread, brown rice and quinoa), some fruit (apples, oranges berries), unlimited greens, lean meats, no preservatives, and some dairy (eggs, milk, cheese and Greek yogurt).
I am trying to get creative with our meals. I am pretty much seasoning everything with olive oil and garlic. So I did a little research online and came up with this great tilapia recipe.
If you like your fish crispy, this is not the dish for you. The dish turns out very light but quite tasty.
Cilantro-Lime Talapia baked in foil
2 Garlic cloves pressed
1/3 c olive oil
1/4 c chopped cilantro
1 lime sliced thin
1/2 c cherry tomatoes halved
1 c broccoli and cauliflower florets
4 sheets of heavy duty foil (about 10 in x 10 in)
Combine garlic and olive oil and heat in the microwave for about 1 min, stir
Place 2 tilapia fillets in on one sheet of foil.
Drizzle olive oil/garlic mixture over the fish
Add a few pinches of cilantro, a few slices of lime, a few tomatoes, broccoli and cauliflower
Fold up the foil on top and sides, folding down a few times to create an air tight seal.
Repeat with remaining ingredients
Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes.
Be careful not to let the steam burn you when you open the foil. Fish should be opaque and flaky.
We served with Quinoa.
