I try to get most of protein from beans and nuts, but a couple of times a week I add Wild Caught fish to my diet...and once a week I have 6 oz. organic free-range chicken breasts. If you have or have had cancer, it's important to limit your red meat intake, and if you do have it then 3 oz. of organic grass-fed beef or lamb is acceptable. Even better, choose Bison or Elk!
A Note about Fish
Be very careful about the fish you eat. As you know where the fish is caught and whether it's wild or farm raised impacts the quality and the safety of the fish.
Many contaminants in our oceans and rivers wind up in our food. Here is a handy list to take with you when shopping for fish. For people who have had cancer, eliminating toxins is essential. Click here for a list of safe fish.
This is my favorite way to cook Cod and my second favorite way to cook Salmon. Don't be fooled by the simplicity of the recipe...
- 2 lbs. wild caught Cod filets
- 6 organic Green Onions, cut in 1-2 inch pieces
- 3-4 Tbs. shredded or diced organic fresh Ginger
- 3 Tbs. organic Soy Sauce
- 1 packet Stevia or 1 tsp. Xylitol
- 1/4 tsp. hot chili oil (opt.)
Mix Soy sauce, Stevia and oil together.
Place half the onions and ginger in glass or ceramic baking dish. Lay filets on top. Scatter remaining onions and ginger on top.
Drizzle with sauce.
Broil for 5 minutes, turn pieces over, and broil additional 3 minutes. If filets are thick test for doneness (fish should flake when poked with a fork.)
Serve hot with sprouted brown rice and steamed vegetables.
