Some people have the weakness of eating healthy, but cannot find the time or energy to exercise. Others have the weakness of working out hard, but slipping in their daily diet. Jillian conquered both weaknesses, she works out hard, and respects her hard work, and acknowledges it by feeding her body only healthy foods. Maybe, if we think about those two words, respect and acknowledge we can do the same. I will try it and let you know how it goes.
Jillian Michaels favorite food are fish and vegetables, and she eats organic whenever possible. Jillian fuels her morning with good quality carbs, and for lunch and dinner low carb meals, like fish and vegetables.
Salmon and tuna are rich in omega-3 fats, and vitamin D which are essential for healthy cells. Studies have shown that these omega-3 rich fish can help relieve joint and muscle pains, because of omega-3's anti-inflammatory action. This is a great benefit for you if you lift weights, or run.
White fish like Halibut, and Tilapia are low in calories and fat, but not high in omega-3 fats. It is loaded with A,B, D and E vitamins. White fish is a good choice if you have high cholesterol. Whatever fish you choose they are all rich in protein. Always choose wild and organic whenever possible. If you cannot find these qualities in fresh fish, frozen is an excellent choice.
Grilled Salmon recipe
This is a tasty fish recipe, but if you are restricting your carb intake omit the sourdough bread. Salmon is so flavorful, you don't need a side dish.
