Although spring and summer are my favorite.... I know autumn and winter are necessary. The same can be said for the seasons of our lives. You may not love the season you’re in now but look for the positive, look for the lesson, look for the beauty and remember seasons don’t last forever. I saw a quote about leaves falling from trees that made me think.... we can choose to focus on the leaves falling from the trees, or we can take a step back and realize those falling leaves allow our eyes to travel much farther and make our horizon seem much wider. There is beauty in both. 
Missing summer. ❤️ #motivationtuesday .

RECIPE: Quick Low Carb Dinner – Orange Ginger Baked Cod and Veggies

Looking to whip up something low carb and delicious for dinner with minimum prep and cook time? Here’s a great idea that will take you less than 30 minutes to whip up!

Prep Time: 10 Min
Cook Time: 15 min
Serves 2

What you will need:

  • 2 filets of Cod
  • 1 head Bok Choy
  • 1 head Broccoli
  • 1 Red/Green Peppers
  • 1 bunch Scallions
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 tsp Ground Ginger
  • 1 Orange
  • Ground Pepper
  • Old Bay Seasoning
  • Parchment Paper
  • Shallow Dish or Cookie Sheet
  • Bowl/Tupperware with lid (for the fish)

 

Prep and Cooking Instructions:

Step 1: Pre-heat oven to 425.

Step 2: Now, we will prep the fish and the marinade. In a small sauce pan, over low flame, add the olive oil, vinegar, ginger and fresh juice from the orange. Let simmer for a few minutes and stir consistently until well blended. Remove from fire.

Sprinkle ground pepper and Old Bay Seasoning on each side of fish and place into bowl or Tupperware. Pour the orange ginger marinade over the fish and cover. Place in fridge.

Step 3: Now we will prep the veggies. Rinse and chop the bok choy, scallions, peppers and broccoli. Click here for video on chopping bok choy.

Step 4: Putting it all together! Grab 2 large piece of parchment paper and place in your shallow dish or cookie sheet. Each filet will be wrapped individually . If each piece cannot fit on one cookie sheet or dish consider using two separate. Take your cod out of the fridge and lay a filet in the center of each parchment paper. Layer on the chopped peppers, bok choy, broccolli and scallions. close up the parchment paper as if you were wrapping a gift. Folds the ends firmly, making sure they are closed as completely as possible.

Bake for 15 minutes. Unwrap and enjoy!

Orange Ginger Cod & Veggies

Bok choy is a type of Chinese cabbage that doesn’t look like the typical cabbage. Instead, it has dark green leaves connected to white stalks. One cup has just 9 calories and barely a trace of fat, yet delivers protein, dietary fiber and almost all the essential vitamins and minerals.

Cod is great source of vitamin B12 and omega 3 fatty acids which help to improve the function of the human heart muscles and help to reduce chance of cardiac problems.
