Um, yeah. I'm trying. Really hard. Here's my new motto -- I even posted it on the fridge.
|Halibut, butter, white wine, salt and pepper wrapped up in a foil packet. Bake at 450 for 10 min per inch of thickness of the fish.|
Not too much. (portion control; my Achilles heel)
Mostly plants. (Not necessarily being vegetarian but reducing the amount of meat. Try to eat more fish than red meat. Think of meat as a garnish instead of the main deal).
The quote is from Michael Pollan who writes about the food and nutrition. The secret to health isn't complicated. Which isn't the same as easy, of course.
Tonight we had halibut, wrapped in a foil packet with mushrooms and seasonings. I sauteed chard in olive oil, and seasoned it with salt, pepper and a little lemon juice.
Poor Brett. He's being a good sport although I've noticed that on the nights we eat mostly plants, he has a nice big bowl of ice cream for dessert. --He's sitting in his recliner right now with some cinnamon bread. Hmmmm.
Oh, and his birthday isn't until next week. I bought him the rain gear as an early gift. But, he did appreciate all the birthday wishes.
