Summer is here - Time to get HEALTHY

Every year, or so it seems, Scott and I decide that we need to eat better, have less treats in the house and work out some.  (I’m being honest here – “some” is A LOT more than we normally do).  Scott will start going to the gym.  I’ll start swimming.  We’ll both start eating better and helping each other look better in our swimsuits.

Some of our favorite meals, when we are eating healthy, are fast and easy to make.  We eat a lot of tilapia, turkey breasts and chicken breasts.  When we’re being “healthy” we tend to eat less red meat and less pork.  Mostly because it feels like both of those meats stay with you for so long.   But my favorite meal, and one the girls love as well is easy and pretty.  (Pretty matters when you are fixing dinner.  Really it does.  Ask my mom.)  Here it is…

Doesn’t it look delicious and pretty?  Let me tell you how easy it is…

2 lemons, for juice

1 cup grape tomatoes, slice in half

2 cups spinach, cut in pieces

1/2 onion, chopped

3-4 tilapia (I do 3, because the girls split one)

Cajun seasoning

First, saute the onions in the juice of 1 lemon. Once the onions are clear, place the tilapia on top of the onions. Sprinkle with the Cajun seasoning, then do the other side. Grill the fish until golden brown on both sides. Dump the tomatoes and the spinach over the fish. Add the juice of the second lemon and cover. Check it after 5 minutes, but you might need to leave it on as long as 10. Don’t go beyond the 10 or the color starts to brown.  Then we serve it with Pillsbury Crescent Rolls.
