What are you training for? If I had a dollar every time I’ve been asked that question I’d be a millionaire. Last week a woman who frequents my gym was in the locker room when I got out of the pool. She told me she sees me swimming, doing interval training and lifting like a rockstar every day. She asked what I was training for. For a second, I pondered it then told her “for LIFE, I’m training for life.”
This isn’t the first time I’ve been asked this question at the gym or in my spin classes. The question always surprises me because you don’t need a reason to train hard and be a badass. You don’t need to train for a race or competition to lift heavy and push yourself outside your comfort. That’s how you see change and grow.
I love to workout. I like intense workouts and challenging my body in new ways. Now more than ever with my new hip. I do it because it makes me feel good, boosts my self esteem, keeps me focused and helps me stay positive. Working out makes me a better, more confident person, coach and friend.
Because I love to workout, I never have a problem convincing myself to go to the gym or eat healthy. Good food means I can push my body harder and faster. Bad food means I’m dragging through my workouts and wanting to sleep instead of work and play.
This Healthy Fish Sandwich is an example of a bad food gone OMG good healthy. For those of you who love fish sandwiches, you know the unhealthy kind you get through a drive-thru? Well, these give them a run for their unhealthiness.
These Healthy Fish Sandwiches have the same flavor and texture without the unhealthy mess of ingredients you get with the drive by kind. If you’ve taken my online fat loss course, you know I’m serious about avoiding chemical foods. Foods that disrupt hormones, cause you to gain weight, and are just plain nasty. No nasty ingredients here! Just REAL food ingredients!
The recipe combines almond flour with cod, a few herbs and spices to jazz up the flavor. It’s a perfectly yummy Paleo version of a homemade fish sandwich that you freeze and eat anytime. I paired mine with a Greek yogurt Sriracha sauce to give them a real kick. For a Paleo version, substitute coconut yogurt with Sriracha or a simple marinara will do.
For the fish, I get mine from Sizzlefish. They ship everything frozen right to your door. The fish is pre-portioned in individual packages. It makes healthy eating easier knowing I can dive into the freezer for what I need.
These Healthy Fish Sandwiches are simple to make, you really can’t mess them up! Toss them on a salad for lunch, eat them as a snack or on a gluten free bun for dinner!
