Resolution #1 - Nutrition - Eat more fish, reduce red meat to once per week
Today is the beginning of my 26 resolutions for 2014. After the holidays, I am looking forward to eating healthy and lighter. We do eat some fish on a regular basis but we definitely need to add more to our diet. For the next 2 weeks, we will only have red meat twice ( and I will let my husband decide what these 2 meat dishes will be). We will have fish at least 3 times per week. Chicken and pork will round out the dinner menus.
Fish, which is low in fat, high in protein, and an important source of omega-3 fatty acids, has huge health benefits - reducing the risk of heart disease, boosting the immune system and lowering blood pressure.
We typically eat salmon or rainbow trout, usually grilled with lemon and dill. But I am looking forward to trying a few new fish recipes such as Fish Tacos.

And I will try a scallop recipe as well.

My sister has been talking about how delicious Black Cod ( also known as Sablefish ) is so I will be serving this fish one night for dinner.

A pasta dish with shrimp, grilled rainbow trout and grilled salmon salad from a Stoneys, a favourite take out restaurant, will fill our fish quota for this resolution. It sure sounds delish!
