I recently wrote a blog about the benefits of fish. I have incorporated fish into my healthy eating lifestyle at least 3 times per week. I have to tell you, I feel better than ever. Aside from the many benefits I discussed in my last blog, fish gives us so much protein, it is low fat, and has low net carbs. What does this do for us? The protein keeps us satiated and helps to repair and build muscle.
And NO, you won’t “bulk up” from protein. It’s a common question with protein and weight lifting. Remember, women do not produce enough testosterone to bulk up. We aren’t built that way.
So, go get some fish this week and experiment with recipes. There are so many! I’m really excited to share this one with you that I made. It was DELICIOUS! I have a lot more recipes that you might like to try on the site. Visit my recipe page here (you can even download the recipe cards to save for another day!) Bon Appetit!
