Eat– for Good Health

 To eat for fast metabolism, get 30% of calories from protein.  I have come to love tilapia because it’s adaptive to added flavors. Also this pure form of protein floods our body with amino acids and protects our muscle while shifting off fat!  This slashes hunger and helps us get thin at top speed.  Serve with a generous heap of steamed broccoli or 1/2 cup shelled edamame and unlimited Asian-style veggies stir-fried in 1 teaspoon peanut oil and low sodium soy sauce.

 Kathleen Rowland’s Parmesan Tilapia 

 Ingredients are simple– dip fish in fat free mayo with lemon juice and Parmesan cheese and Mrs. Dash seasonings.  And then:

  1. Preheat your oven’s broiler. Grease a broiling pan or line pan with aluminum foil.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the Parmesan cheese, butter, mayonnaise and lemon juice. Season with dried basil, pepper, onion powder and celery salt. Mix well and set aside.
  3. Arrange fillets in a single layer on the prepared pan. Broil a few inches from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the fillets over and broil for a couple more minutes. Remove the fillets from the oven and cover them with the Parmesan cheese mixture on the top side. Broil for 2 more minutes or until the topping is browned and fish flakes easily with a fork. Be careful not to over cook the fish.

  1. Friends, being thin allows us to wear just about any fashion we like. Naturally I want to dress appropriately for my age but in a youthful way. Having a waist-line is a wonderful ego booster.

    That’s right, Kathleen. 30% of my meals are protein for the reasons you gave– less of a monstrous appetite and the fact that protein is needed to build cells. I want to look good for a long long time. I like your recipe and plan to use it tonight.

    Yes indeed. Food that kills hunger and builds tissue makes perfect sense. I like edamame with the big stir fry.

    Hey ladies, doesn’t it feel nice to not be afraid to get into a bathing suit. Admittedly I have five pounds to drop, but I’m going to the pool.

    Hi Janessa, Jill, Mary Alica, and Reba– thank you for your posts. Fruit and vegetables are unlimited for between meal snacking.
