The only reason why I will not be considered 100% vegan is because every now and then I love to eat my fish, I guess you can call me the TWISTED VEGAN :) It seems like it is the only food out of the Vegan food list that 'sits well' in my stomach after I eat it. I love Tilapia, Salmon and Cod fish. My portion is literally like a deck of cards and I always eat it with a side of veggies. I'd say I eat fish at least once a month or once every other month and it is more than enough for me. As for meats and cheese (and all other forms of dairy), they really are my enemies, even though sometimes I 'tease' around with them. My body reacts negatively to these foods and I guess that's why I stay away...Meats and dairy (yes including fish too) are acid-forming foods and live foods (organic fruits, veggies, etc) are alkaline-forming. We ALWAYS want our bodies to be slightly more alkaline. An acidic body is a breeding ground for Dis-ease. If you'll like to know more read THE CHINA STUDY.
A Very FLAKY-FISHY Affair:
|I usually use Salmon for this recipe but I didn't have any at home. Works well with either.|
Ingredients for Fish:
4 cod fillets
1/3 cup Italian bread crumbs
1 Tbsp olive oil
Lightly rub olive oil on both sides of each cod fillet. Next, coat each side of the fillets with Italian bread crumbs. Place each piece of fish in a baking dish. Set oven to 350 degrees and bake fish for about 20 to 30 minutes.
Ingredients for 'CHEEZY' Veggies
1 cup mixed carrots and peas
13 oz can garbanzo beans (cheakpeas)
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 onion, chopped
1 tsp garlic powder
2 Tbsp olive oil
Sprinkle of salt (Optional)
2-3 Tbsp nutritional yeast
First, lightly steam carrots and peas mix and chick peas, set aside. Next, in a separate pan saute onions until translucent. Add garlic powder, black pepper and mix. Then add carrots and peas and stir. Lastly add nutritional yeast mix and let cook uncovered for about 2 minutes. Serve with fish and enjoy.
Anyway, hope you enjoy it. My favorite part of this meal is the Cheezy veggies, the nutritional yeast gives it that creamy-cheezy flavor and it is also very nutritious for you. Here are some great benefits of nutritional yeas, which you can buy at your local farmer's market or whole foods store.
NUTRITIONAL YEAST FACTS:
-Great source of B-complex vitamins especially B-12
-It is a complete protein
-It is low in sodium, fat and is gluten-free and dairy-free
-It is NOT YEAST(because it has been deactivated)
