Nothing says ‘healthy seafood lunch’ to me quite like a plate of Grilled Salmon & Vegetables. This is one of my favorite dishes and is so quick and easy to prepare. Yes, I know; they’re several scary warnings out there about the dangers of high heat cooking (meats especially), but vegetables don’t suffer that rep and the occasional piece of grilled fish won’t kill you. We hope.
Fresh Ginger is a most essential ingredient for every kitchen. Besides being the king of savory and sweet spicy spices (how’s that for a description), it’s distinct pungent flavor brings heat and life to so many recipes we love. From soups and sauces to healthy desserts, ginger has a way of literally stealing the show every time. But aside from all that, there will undoubtedly be (many) times that you’ll be drawn to it for its medicinal properties.
So, for optimum health, we’re essentially supposed to say yes to lots of raw vegetables but avoid shellfish and bottom feeders (especially the humanoid kind). But every once in a while you’re allowed, encouraged even, to give yourself a little treat. This is what balance is about, and balance is essential to happiness. And happiness is, of course, everything.
Okay, so if you’re like most struggling-to-stay-in-shape over-40-somethings, the last thing you want to hear from anyone, much less me, is a lecture on DISCIPLINE. Discipline, you say? WTF! Who wants that?
Hell no; discipline is for boring people, goddamn it. Boring is definitely not you! You’re a free spirit and you do exactly as you please. Besides, there must be a cheat, mustn’t there? C’mon, isn’t there a secret formula, an anyone-can-do-it system that will magically anoint us with the glowing, healthy body we’ve always dreamed of?
