Healthy Meal: Mahi Mahi Steak with Mango Salsa and Curry Couscous

This has been in my list of recipes to try for a while, so when Western Beef had mangoes on sale the other day, I picked one up and planned to try this. Fish recipe notes:Because I was grilling on the Foreman, I didn’t put any olive oil on. Just slapped it on the grill, sprinkled some pepper on, and let it go. Easy. Salsa recipe notes:Wow, peeling mango is such a pain! I cut my finger on the peeler {Read More}

Healthy Meal: Wild Mushroom and Eggplant Ravioli with Snapper Acqua Pazza

Ugh, I just made the worst dinner ever. Honestly, part of it was absolutely inedible… yet I ate it anyway because of my stupid hangup about not wasting food. I wasn’t pressured when I was little or anything, but for some reason I feel incredibly guilty letting food go to waste. Clearly not the best philosophy for my diet, but I can’t seem to shake it, so I just try to make sure I only make/serve small portions so it’s {Read More}

Healthy Meal: Rosemary Grilled Tuna Steaks with Eggplant and Zucchini

Can you believe you get three recipes today? It’s your lucky day! Just in case you’re trying to eat all of these in one day, tonight’s dinner is extra low-cal but still filling and delicious. Ignore the chip on the plate… clearly I don’t know how to pick my best dishes when taking pictures for my blog! Recipe notes:I grilled the tuna on the George Foreman, so I just brushed it with balsamic vinegar and then sprinkled the rosemary on {Read More}

Healthy Meal: Emeril’s Shrimp Scampi

I was trying to post something light because I know so many of us overindulged on Christmas. However, this recipe actually ended up being a bit heavy because it involved a) pasta b) shrimp and c) oil. Not necessarily a diet recipe, though it’s also not terrible for you. Fortunately, I went running today (NINE miles. Yes, NINE. I’m so proud of myself), so I’ve really earned some more calories to eat (even though I don’t generally make a practice {Read More}

Healthy Meal: Grilled Mahi Mahi Fillet and Asparagus with Orange and Sesame

My apartment-guest for the weekend met up with another friend for dinner, which gave me the chance to cook something healthy instead of going out to eat! Hurray. I wanted something as low-cal and healthy as possible after my pizza binge last night (and with another night of drinking planned for tonight). I was thinking of just grilling some fish and pairing it with some broccoli, but instead found this great recipe that’s very similar to that and very simple. {Read More}

Healthy Meal: Scarlet Snapper with Field Peas and Snaps

This recipe was probably the easiest I’ve made. Unfortunately, not that tasty. However, I think I attribute that to personal taste rather than the actual recipe. Basically, you chop up some peppers and onions, toss them in a baking dish, lay a piece of snapper on top, splash some Worcestershire sauce on top, and then put a bit of butter on (I used a quick spray of Pam instead). Pop it in the oven for 20 mins, put a bit {Read More}
