Blackened Grouper, Yum!

blackened-grouperI need to eat more quality fish! First, it tastes so good. :) Second, eating fish appears to be pretty health since it contains beneficial omega-3 fatty acids. My lunch today featured a beautiful, blackened grouper with a baked potato (butter and sour cream), broccoli (topped with real butter), and a side salad. This is a perfect meal for my version of a Primal/Paleo diet. You’ll notice I’m clearly not strict Paleo as I enjoy some dairy and, especially when I’m working out, don’t shy away from white potatoes. I listen to my body and sometimes I just feel better when I mix in some starchy carbs.

I stayed with the intermittent fasting plan eating the above a bit after noon, and then had leftover chili for dinner. I kept the estimated carb count at 118g, well below my goal of keeping my carbohydrate intake below 200g. As a result, my morning ketosis test has been positive for almost a week now. The further benefit is almost effortless weight control (as measured daily with my FitBit Aria Smart Scale).

Here’s to eating more fish and, as always…

Be smart in the kitchen and a beast in the gym…
