A Whole New Nugget
by Keleigh May on January 23rd, 2015

Simple Lemon and Herb Cod
  • Wild Caught Cod (we got ours for a little over $4 in the freezer section at Trader Joes's)
  • 1 Lemon
  • 2-4 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Basil
  • 1 clove of fresh grated garlic
  • salt and pepper

Defrost cod in fridge overnight.  Preheat over to 350.  Grate the garlic and massage into the fish (this will ensure the garlic is evenly distributed throughout the fish).  Cover with basil, salt and pepper.  Cut lemon in half.  Juice 1 half over the fish.  Using the remaining half, cut 3-4 slices (depending on the number of filets of fish you have) and place on top center of fish.  Place in a greased baking dish.  Top each slice of lemon with 1/2 tablespoon of butter.  Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until fish is cooked all the way through.    Serve with steamed broccoli and jasmine rice.  

A money saving tip: never tried jasmine rice?  Purchase in the bulk section at your local Whole Foods.  Nugget got 3-4 servings for only $1.

Got Leftovers?

Jazz up your leftover fish to make a fancy pasta dish. Simply boil a serving of organic whole wheat linguini. While your pasta is boiling, melt 1-2 tablespoons of butter with 1 clove of grated garlic.  When noodles are fully cooked, combine with garlic butter sauce.   Mix in any left over broccoli or fish (that you reheated in oven for 10 minutes at 350) and top with parmesan cheese.  There you have it!  Same protein, totally different meal.  By the way, this sounded so delicious, I couldn't help but serve it to my family with our Bruschetta Burgers. this week.

More Proof She Really Liked It!

The best way to insure you can stick to a new meal plan is to own it, get excited about it, and play with it! I'm so proud of little Nugget for switching around her meal plan to work with her schedule. 
Nugget herself holds a Master's Degree, and is quite the sharp little cookie, yet she simply didn't know about eating clean. I think she says it the best (no clever wording necessary) once you know what's in your food, simply make a few changes to make yourself healthier. It's not trendy, if anything it's how every single generation that ever came before us ever ate (GMO's weren't on the scene until the 1990's). But the problem is, people just don't know what's in their food. Once you know better, you do better.

My job is done!
Thank you to Nugget for proving that where there's a meal, there's a way!
