Happy New Year!
This is our first week with a recipe recommendation, and I have to say that we are so excited! This week, one of Danielle's balance patients and his wife recommended a recipe to us that we may have never tried or attempted: Cod with Fennel and Onion. We asked Cynthia Eisler to describe her motivation for fitness and why she loves this recipe:
"I feel in old age you have to fight to stay fit. I feel the more fit I am, the better I feel. I don't necessarily like walking for exercise, but I know that 30-40 minutes of walking really helps me feel better for the rest of the day"
"I saw this recipe on Rachel Ray and I love cod. I've never made cod in this way and I've never used fennel so I was a little intimidated. But I was surprised about how easy the recipe was, and it came out fantastic! I would recommend that you increase the cooking times by a couple of minutes. The garnish is also really good! Oh... and if you're wondering what the heck the core of the fennel is, just cut it open and you'll see it. It is a tiny, thick, white spot near where the roots are."
We are so excited to have recipe recommendations as a part of the blog and we hope to keep this up. So be sure to send us any recipes that you love! Also include what your motivation is for healthy living/fitness, and why you love the recipe. If it wasn't for the Eislers, we would have never tried fennel, or learn how to cut it up. If you're wondering what the heck fennel looks like, let us help you out: (we had no clue, and resorted to googling it while food shopping)
Okay, now that you know what it looks like.... now you should know what part of this thing you're going to cut up and eat. Here's a video that helped us out: How To Cut Fennel. Good 'Ol Martha Stewart will never let you down!
We hope you have as much fun with these recipes as we do.
