NOURISHING NELLI | EAT REAL FOOD| FISH FAJITAS | CULINARY MEDICINE
Mexican food is a favorite of mine due to it’s huge adjustability, as well as ability to incorporate a large amount of fresh veggies – resulting in allowing you to squeeze in as many nutrients as possible! The adjustability comes by adding a little of this, or a little of that, which I’ll cover below, via a simple intuitive tune it!
Black olives/no black olives?
GUAC//NO GUAC? (why anyone would choose the later is beyond me, but maybe your having some of these Phat Fudge Brownies later, that consist of avocados, so your saving room?!
You get the point! There are SO many options when it comes to choosing how you build your plate! The practice of eating intuitively is gained via self-awareness – reaching a level that you feel comfortable in making food choices that will support your wellbeing in that moment!
Mexican meals are highly allowable for that “tune in to your unique body and give it what it needs” moment, that I view as one of the most important pieces to the wellness puzzle! No matter what the wellness trends are; no one can tune into your bodies innate wisdom like you can!
Better your sense of self-awareness by asking a simple set of questions prior to making meal choices. Some of my favorite notions to pay attention to are:
How Hungry Am I?
How Thirsty Am I?
How Do I Want To Feel After Eating This Meal?
By going through the above questions you can then decide on where to grab! For more on learning how to achieve this – catch me for 1-1 coaching in the NN Shop – Fresh Start Consultation and Education.
Back to the Fajitas because they’re super delicious!!! I tend to turn all of my Mexican dishes into a salad of some sort by adding fresh greens so that I have a large bed to add all of the other ingredients to. Think cilantro and cumin, peppers and paprika, olives and onions!
These fish fajitas are a perfect example of so. Traditional fajitas consist of a sizzling pan of peppers, possibly some onions, a source of protein in a sauce, a side of sour cream, and tortillas.
I turn the traditional fajita dinner into a salad type dish, by serving it over a bed of hydrating romaine lettuce, adding some squash slices and a source of healthy fat’s for optimal digestion, nutrient absorption, and hormonal balance. Adding healthy fats to your meals allows your body to transport the nutrients into your cells more easily, providing you with lasting energy and a happy belly. Have fun with the recipe and turn it into YOUR favorite version of Fish Fajitas!
