- Eating on plan
- Working out
- Staying positive
- Focusing on myself
I know that I need to get a bit more creative in the kitchen. And by creative, I mean I need to try to make more simple meals during the week – with a plan!
So, in planning this week’s meals, I chose all new recipes. Last night’s was a complete hit! Super Yum Sauce was still good at lunch today. Yes, it’s that good, folks. I could lap it up. Seriously.
Tonight I had planned on this fantastic tilapia recipe…
When buying tilapia, there are a number of different options out there. However, only farm-raised USA-grown tilapia is considered sustainable from the Monterrey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch.
I think it’s extremely important to buy sustainable food. And for me, fish is one of the easiest. If you shop at Whole Foods, they have a little sticker on the tag of the fish indicating where it came from and if it’s sustainable. My local grocery store, Sprout’s, indicates where everything came from, and whether it’s farmed or wild. Using either the Seafood Watch App on my iPhone or Android, or the Seafood Watch Pocket Guides, I find it really easy to make a great choice that I know is better for the environment and healthier.

Finished the evening with a cupcake. Turns out the hubby didn’t take them into work today, and I just had to have just 1 more! But, I made him promise that he had to take them in tomorrow… They just cannot stay in this house!
Do you care where your fish / beef / chicken come from and whether they are sustainable? How does it affect your grocery shopping & eating out?
