This blog has become a collection of workouts we have done; both ones we have created ourselves and ones that we have found created by others. It also includes some of our favorite recipes.
This is a blog of our fitness journey, one that we will be on the rest of our lives.
Tonights Dinner! Almond Crusted Tilapia and Sweet Potato Fries
Mmmmmm. First off, let me just say, I was totally watching Madagascar while I was making/eating dinner...and that instantly made it all that much better(not like it wasnt great to begin with haha) Anyways, tonight, after that lovely total arm workout, I was really craving some fish, not sure why, but I was. So tonights dinner was almond crusted tilapia with asparagus and sweet potato fries. I rarely eat a full 'meal' in one sitting, normally, I probably would have eaten the fish, and then a little later had some sweet potato fries, and then have asparagus. It was different eating a meal all at once haha but it sure was yummy! I was surprised at how much I liked the fish like that, this was the first time I tried cooking it like that. For the 'breading' on the fish, use enough ingredients for the amount of fish youre cooking. Since I only had one piece of fish I didnt make enough to really even measure.
Almond Crusted Tilapia
Almonds, crushed(I used about 1/4 cup)
Bread crumbs(I used a spoonful)
Parmesan Cheese(I used a spoonful)
Dijon Mustard(enough to cover both sides of the fish)
Combine the crushed almonds, the bread crumbs and the parmesan cheese in a bowl. Cover both sides of the fish with the dijon mustard. Place the fish in the bowl of 'breading' and coat both sides. Cook in a heated, greased pan until the fish is done.
Sweet Potato Fries
Sweet potato, washed but not peeled
Preheat oven to 400. Cut up the sweet potato into fries. Coat with olive oil(1-2 tbsp is usually enough, I put the fries in a covered container, add the oil and then shake up the container). Place the fries in a baking pan covered with aluminum foil. Sprinkle with seasoned salt and pepper. Cook about 20-30 minutes or until the fries are not hard anymore and can be poked easily with a fork.
