Wild Teriyaki Tuna with GF pasta and veggies

Standard

tuna1 <— Mmmm…. soo yummy!! I honestly get such an intense high out of creating my own flavorful dishes. I feel myself come alive when I start mixing flavors and adding ingredients in order to get that perfect flavor. I honestly can’t help but think of the movie Ratatouille and his passion in the kitchen…. haha!

Okay, so, I don’t normally ever cook tuna. The only fish I stick with are wild Atlantic salmon and sometimes Mahi or snapper. However, I was really in the mood for some teriyaki tuna. Tuna normally has a bad reputation for high mercury contents. I will clarify though, that tuna found in restaurants is actually known to contain the HIGHEST amounts of mercury around. So, I never order tuna in restaurants, but I don’t mind WILD, YELLLOWFIN TUNA every blue moon. There are lots of health benefits, and it is loaded in selenium. So, don’t go making tuna every day, but every blue moon it’s oaky. πŸ™‚

I will say, I had lots of fun creating this recipe. The GF pasta has a sweet taste and perfectly balances the flavor of the tuna. Plus, I soak the tuna in amino acids, which are very beneficial to your health.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

2 yellowfin tuna filets
1 tbsp. of Bragg’s amino acids
1 tbps. Organicville Sesame Teriyaki
3 tbps coconut oil
1 bag of frozen ORGANIC corn
1 bag of frozen organic sweet potatoes
1 bag of frozen organic butternut squash
1/4 cup Daiya cheddar cheese

Directions:

Marinate the tuna with the amino acids and teriyaki sauce
Bake forΒ 15-20 minutes at 475, then turn on broil and let it crisp… unless you like it more raw.. then, cook for less time.
Boil the pasta while you cook the veggies in a separate pan with the coconut oil.
When the pasta is cooked, add to the pan of veggies.
Season with salt, garlic salt and pepper.
Pair with a salad and put the tuna over top πŸ™‚

ENJOY.

Caprese Chicken

Standard

CAPRESEΒ Β  I love cooking with my sissy. Whenever the two of us get together, WATCH OUT- we will make some serious magic happen in the kitchen. We created this dish in a heart beat. We wowed the guests too! πŸ™‚ I normally avoid dairy at all costs, but sometimes- you gotta live. πŸ™‚ This is just too moist, juicy, and still healthy to resist. It is high in protein, gluten free, and easy to make!

Make sure to only buy organic ingredients. WHATEVER you do, avoid convention chicken. It is loaded with so many hormones, antibiotics, and chemicals. These growth hormones not on ly cause you to gain weight, but they also have been linked to causing cancer cells to grow too… NOT WORTH IT…. just pay the extra money. Costco sells organic chicken breasts for super cheap. They are the cheapest around!
