It’s no mystery the food we consume has an impact on our internal temperatures and our outward feelings. With winter coming our bodies are now adjusting to a season that fatigues our bodies just trying to keep warm.
Do your body some good.
Today’s inspiration: ROASTED SEA BASS with a GINGER GARLIC AVOCADO SALAD
Why it works:
–Sea bass, avocado, and sesame seed oil all contain omega fats (the good kind) that are necessary in human bodies to transport nutrients, which will keep you energized, and keep your hair and skin hydrated with the cold weather
–Ginger naturally circulates your blood, which will help keep those extremities from getting too cold!
–Lettuce and salads are low in caloric density and high in water content and nutrients, which keep you hydrated and fill your stomach, while regulating your digestion and feeling of mobility. (Cold weather already makes you feel lethargic, so why increase that when you can actually decrease it?)
–It tastes incredible, so the endorphins won’t hurt, either.
To make the salad, use the Bubble Child Creamy Ginger Garlic Vinaigrette recipe here and drizzle it over some lettuce and sliced avocado: http://bubblechild.com/2013/10/06/you-say-ginger-i-say-salad-dressing/
To roast your sea bass, simply season it with salt and pepper, cut it into portions, and pop it in the oven on parchment paper or a lightly greased pan at 225 degrees F for somewhere between 8 and 15 minutes (depends on your oven and the thickness of your fish). You want the fish to be opaque, meaning it isn’t raw or cold in the middle and is cooked through. Serve with a side or rice, quinoa, or cooked millet for a filling and fresh complement.
or you can just have red wine in snow and call it a day.
