It’s been a hot summer these past few days in NY. When the heat is beaming, one of my favorite kinds of meals to enjoy is fish on the grill because it doesn’t leave me feeling heavy.
To me, summer is all about enjoying fresh ingredients. Fruit and veggies are at their prime and I always look forward to the first long island corn on the cob. I think my family would honestly be happy eating watermelon every night for dinner; this being a summer tradition I also love.
Regardless of the season, I truly believe in trying to eat clean. My body is living proof that you are what you eat, and with my active lifestyle I believe that the less processed foods I eat the better. This is why I love this recipe from an advocate of the 17 Day Diet, Terri Sinclair, which my mom recently made.
By no means am I trying to loose weight, in fact I don’t really believe in the word “diet.” Rather I see a diet as making a healthier lifestyle change. However, the reason I love many of the recipes in this book is because they go back to cooking basics and use fresh and natural ingredients. This recipe is a testament that less is really more. I promise you will be amazed by its flavor!
