There's Something Fishy Going On!

Hmmm yes..

Something's definitely fishy around herrr!


I gotta say...

Fish is something I've been seeing, preparing and eating lots of as I prepare for my Fitness Competition! (Almost 11 weeks away, WoOp!)

For me...

I really enjoy 'livening' up my foods as I find pre-comp diets look pretty bland, boring and simply just no FUn to look at! (Taking the time to plate your food nicely makes your meal that much more enjoyable and special. Pre-comp or not, I always put in that extra effort to make it look pretty!)

I mean...

I like to dress up my food just as much as I like to dress myself up (and by that I mean every day wear) on a day to day basis!

Good comparison?!

I think so! ;)

So without FUrther ado...

Here are a few recipes I would like to share with Ya'll!

And guess what...

It includes Fish!

  11. I love fish! I can see how it could get boring pretty quickly, but yours looks delicious. Do you have local fish nearby, or do you just get what you can?

    I am a bit lazy with serving food - I just want to eat it!
