So, you saw my before and after shots I finally posted last week and I discussed how important portion control is when losing or maintaing your weight. This week, I want to discuss how important it is to make a commitment and stick with it. Make this commitment for yourself, but know that you should make it for your loved ones as well. You want to watch your children grow and you want to live a happy, healthy life, right? You can’t love others until you love yourself. Your commitment can be as little as marching in place while you watch television, get 10 minutes of walking done during the day, eat a nutritious breakfast everyday- the commitment list is never-ending. These small changes will make a huge difference in the long run.
I chose to discuss a fish recipe this week. I am Catholic, so with Lent on the horizon, it is time for fish on Fridays. My kids won’t eat fish unless it’s fried, so here’s a Fried Fish Sandwich recipe worth 5 points.
– 1 spray olive oil cooking spray, or enough to coat pan and fish
– 1/2 cup Fiber One cereal, ground to a powder like consistency
– 1 tsp garlic powder
– 1 tsp onion powder
– 1 tsp paprika
– 1 /12 tsp salt
– 1/2 tsp pepper
– 1 1/4 pound cod fillet, (four 5 oz pieces)
– 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
– 4 medium sized mixed-grain hamburger rolls
– 8 pieces lettuce
– 4 slices onion
– 1 small tomato, sliced
Preheat oven to 400ºF. Coat a large baking sheet with olive oil cooking spray.
Combine Fiber One crumbs, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt and pepper in a shallow dish. Coat both sides of each cod fillet with mustard and then turn fish in Fiber One crumbs mixture to coat. Arrange fillets on baking sheet and spray surface with cooking spray. Bake until fish is fork-tender and coating is golden brown, about 20 minutes.
Place fish on rolls and top each with 2 lettuce leaves and 1/4 of tomato and onion slices.
