Easy Ahi Tuna Fish Recipes

Easy Ahi Tuna Fish Recipes

Hi Healthy Living Junkies!   I love fish and I am always looking for easy fish recipes. Here is one of my personal favorite easy ahi tuna fish recipes from the island of Hawaii called “Poke”.  Poke is made from ahi tuna, and is served raw.  If you like sushi, you will love Hawaiian Poke.

Easy Fish Recipe

In Hawaii, it is served as an appetizer, but you can also serve it as a main meal over a bed of greens for a easy lunch or fast dinner.  I made a video recipe for you so you can see how easy it is to make!  Fat burning foods include lean protein, such as fish.  This easy fish recipe is high in protein, low carbs and is delicious.

You can keep poke in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.  After 2-3 days, you can pan sear it or cook it.

You can use different types of sashimi grade fish for poke.  I’ve tried octopus poke, mixed with sea weed.  The possibilities are endless!

Teriyaki Swordfish Salad

Teriyaki Swordfish Salad

Hi Healthy Living Junkies!  Want a tasty way to eat your greens and get healthy omega 3’s?  Try my new healthy teriyaki sword fish recipe.  A 3-ounce serving of grilled swordfish provides 108 milligrams of EPA, and 656 milligrams of DHA.  EPA and DHA are omega-3 fats that are found in fatty fish and shellfish.   It is also a great source of Vitamin D.  With a firm meaty texture, swordfish is a delicious way to change up your healthy protein.

Healthy Teriyaki Swordfish Salad

2 fillets of sword fish 5-7 oz
1 roma tomato, diced
1 clove of garlic, minced
1/4 cup of onions
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup raw sugar
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 wedge of lemon (optional)
1-2 tablespoon olive oil
1 bag of mixed greens salad

Dressing

3 cloves garlic
minced2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger root
3/4 cup olive oil
1/3 cup rice vinegar
1/2 cup soy sauce
3 tablespoons honey
1/4 cup water

Directions for Swordfish
Take the soy sauce, sugar, garlic, vinegar and ginger and mix to create marinade.  Add uncooked sword fish and marinade in fridge for 1-2 hours.  Heat olive oil in a pan on medium high.  Add onions and sautee until lightly brown around the edges,  about 2-4 minutes.  Remove swordfish from marinade and put in pan.  Discard marinade. Pan grill fish for 3-5 minutes on each side, or until cooked all the way through.  Arrange salad in 2 bowls and add in tomatoes and swordfish and onions.

Direction for Dressing
In a 1 pint glass jar or larger, combine the garlic, ginger, olive oil, rice vinegar, soy sauce, honey, and water. Cover the jar with a tight fitting lid, and shake well. Remove lid, and heat jar in the microwave for 1 minute just to dissolve the honey. Let cool, and shake well before serving. Store covered in the refrigerator.

Add dressing and enjoy

Flu and Cold Prevention

Flu and Cold Prevention

Hi Healthy Living Junkies!  It is chilly outside and the flu and cold is going around.  Protect yourself from getting sick by taking some precautions.   Here are some flu and cold prevention tips.

 

Flu and Cold Prevention Tips

 

1)  Eat lots of fruits and vegetables.  They are loaded with antioxidants to boost your immune system.  Eat a mix of colors like the rainbow.  One of my favorite is organic kale.  =)

 

Kale

2) Vitamin C is essential to preventing a cold.  When I travel, I always carry some Emergency Vitamin C.  The best source of vitamin C are from citrus fruits, berries, and dark leafy greens.

 

Vitamin C

3) If you feel under the weather, or if you are getting symptoms of a cold or flu, try Uncka.  A really nice lady from Jimbo’s Grocers in San Diego recommended this supplement and it shortens the duration of the cold or flu.  I tried it and it seems to work.  I was feeling some body aches, but after taking the supplement, it went away.  🙂

 

Umcka Cold Prevention

 

And of course, make sure you wash your hands often.  🙂

 

Exercising and staying fit also helps boost your immune system.  The best part is, not only will you feel great, you will look amazing too!  Check out my fitness program and watch this educational video on clean eating and how to stay in shape.

Best Carbs for Weight Loss

Best Carbs for Weight Loss

Hi Healthy Living Junkie,

I know you hear out of information out there on carbs.  How can you tell what’s  good carbs vs  bad carbs?   Simple.  If it can sit on the shelf for a long time, it is probably a bad carb.  Things like cookies, candy, muffins, refined pasta, refined cereal, are all bad carbs.   Why should you eat good carbohydrates?  Good carbohydrates keep you fuller because it is filled with fiber as well as tons of nutrition including vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.  Some even have cancer fighting properties too!

 

Bad Carbs
 

How can you tell if something is a good carb?  It is usually fresh, not processed and does not come in a package.  The exceptions to the rule are whole grains, whole grain bread with more than 3-5 g of fiber per serving, and whole grain cereal or oatmeal.  Look out for “fake healthy foods”  such as a “healthy bar” with added in fiber.  The best types of good carbs comes from fresh vegetables, fresh fruits, and complex starches.  Learn more about good carbs in this video.

 

Good Carbs vs Bad
 

Good carbs can also help with weight loss by boosting your metabolism. Love bread?  Here is one my favorite healthy whole grain bread.  It is dense and filling and has lot of fiber to keep you full and satisfied.

Why Eat Organic Foods

Why Eat Organic Foods

Hi Healthy Living Junkies!  This year,  eat healthier by buying more organic fruits and vegetables.  Here is why you should eat organic Foods.  Traditional fruits and vegetables are filled with pesticides and other harmful toxins, eliminating many health benefits from eating the fruits and vegetables in the first place. These toxins effect many parts of our bodies, including the nervous system.

 

Annie
 

The Pesticide Action Network confirms, “90 percent of lettuce tests positive for 47 different pesticides and 57 different chemical residues.” Contrary to popular myth, you can’t just wash off the pesticides. It is within the fruit and vegetable, so you can’t wash it off, soak it, or do anything to remove the toxins.  Hard to believe it, right? Try this experiment out for yourself. Grab some food coloring or color dye and put it in a cup. Put the cut end of a vegetable in the cup. Pretty crazy, right? Fruits and vegetables grown with pesticides not only are coated with the toxins, but it also soaks it up. Root vegetables and fruits and vegetable with thin skin or are delicate are particularly vulnerable to high toxicity levels.

 

Dirty Dozen

The National Institutes of Health’s recent studies discovered, ”Only 5–10 percent of all cancer cases can be attributed to genetic defects, whereas the remaining 90–95 percent have their roots in the environment and lifestyle.” What we put in our body directly effects our health, which is why eat organic foods.  Organic fruits and vegetables also have more nutritional value than conventionally grown foods because of better soil quality and growing conditions.

 

Organic-Food
So what can you do about it? I know buying organic is expensive. In a perfect world, we would all be able to purchase all our foods organic. The alternative is to purchase organic for what is known as the “DIRTY DOZEN”, 12 of the most heavily pesticide fruits and vegetables.

 

Dirty Dozen  (Buy Organic)

Apples, Celery, Sweet Bell Peppers, Peaches, Strawberries, Nectarines, Grapes, Spinach, Lettuce, Cucumbers, Blueberries, Potatoes, Kale (#13), Collard Greens (#14)

Dirty-Dozen

Many people think organic foods are too expensive, but the truth is, it is actually more affordable than many packaged foods you buy. If you were to buy organic foods instead of junk foods, microwaveable meals, or soft drink and candy, you would be able to covert most of your foods to organic, getting rid of the toxins, pesticides, grown hormones and antibiotics from meat, and have a ton of energy in the process.

Here is an example:    Bag of chips: $3.99      vs       1 lb of Organic Apple: $1.99

 

Here are the least pesticide conventionally grown fruits and vegetables out there. If you are on a budget, these fruits and vegetables are the safest to buy through conventionally raised methods.

 

The Clean 15  (Can Buy Conventional)

Asparagus, Avocado, Cabbage, Cantaloupe, Corn, Eggplant, Grapefruit, Kiwi, Mango, Mushroom, Onion, Papaya, Pineapples, Sweet Peas, Sweet Potato

 

If you buy fruits and vegetables in season, you can find very reasonably priced organic produce.  In addition to eliminating harmful toxins and chemical pesticides, it also has more nutritional value than conventionally grown product.  The best part is, it taste better!  If you don’t believe me, try it out for yourself:  Buy 1 organic fruit and buy the same fruit conventionally grown.  You will find the organic one to taste more flavorful, and the conventional fruit is a lot more bland and tasteless compared to it. Make a commitment to yourself this year to take better care of your body by eating less toxins and more organic foods!   Eating the right organic foods will also help you lose weight and shed unwanted body fat.  It’s just one of the other perks of healthy living.  Let me know if you can taste a difference between conventional and organic foods!  I’d love to hear from you! =)
