s.p baked with coconut oil + sea salt, roasted zucchini pasta with mustard, and the best seafood EVER…aka Sea Bass. I want it again…and again.

Some of you heard about my excitement over that sea bass. That huge .5 pounder fillet was on manager’s special at my local grocer. I had never tried sea bass before, but decided to pick it up on a whim. I didn’t expect anything amazing, but it out of this world. SO buttery and flavorful. Sea bass will be my new splurge item from now on.

I simply cooked it on the stove top with olive oil, seasonings, and lemon juice.

more seafood lovin’…teriyaki marinated salmon with japanese sweet potato, and roasted cabbage

For the salmon, I marinated overnight in my sauce mixture on this post. Darn good stuff, too.

chocolate brownie cheesecake

Yup, cheesecakes are back in full swing around here. I’m still working on that post by the way. It is so fun to switch up the flavor combinations and makes it impossible to get tired of this delicious stuff.

    Can you share your recipe for your green monster? Looks great!

    • Sweetly Fit July 19, 2012 at 3:28 am #

      This one was pretty basic. Just 1 cup almond milk, 1/2 cup water, 1 serving Trutein vanilla protein powder, 15 ice cubes, a pour of sugar free vanilla syrup, a handful of spinach, and a pinch of xanthan thickening gum. I have a shake section in my recipe tab with some of my favorites, too!

        Thank you!

  15. sarah July 18, 2012 at 11:04 pm #

    Your eats look glooorious- so full of my favourite things – coconut oil, buttery salmon, fresh peaches , mmmm:).
    I am psyched for the cheesecake post! They look so scrumptious.

    My workout was a 30 min power spin class followed by 4miles on the treadmill.

    Xxx

  17. Emily July 19, 2012 at 1:34 am #

    I took an avocado, cut it in half, sprinkled parmesan cheese, lime juice and pepper on it and broiled it until the cheese melted! It was my first time doing that and it was one of the best things I’ve ever eaten!

  18. Miriam@Bellaspire July 19, 2012 at 1:54 am #

    I did Zumba today and had a blast!!! I posted a new homemade protein bar on my blog today which was also the best thing I ate!!

  27. Health Freak College Girl July 19, 2012 at 5:24 am #

    I did a leg workout today πŸ™‚ And the best thing I ate today was probably a grilled cheese and french fries. Healthy? Nope. Delicious? You bet.

  28. squigglefloey July 19, 2012 at 9:57 am #

    A soft serve from McDonalds! πŸ™‚

  29. Katie July 19, 2012 at 12:23 pm #

    I LOVE tomato, mozzarella, and basil together! Have you ever tried it with a balsamic glaze on top? Delish πŸ™‚

  30. Maline Srey July 19, 2012 at 4:31 pm #

    Puttanesca sauce with added fresh squash, zucchini, and carrots over linguine. Left-overs will be even better!

  31. Elena V July 20, 2012 at 2:09 am #

    Well your plate with zucchini plate certainly got my mouth watering!
    The best thing I ate today was home-made Greek yogurt that my non-Greek mother made for me. She is great at making it considering she has no prior experience with it.
    So I got me a bowl of Greek yogurt, sprinkled it with crushed gluten-free vanilla wafers and topped with grilled banana. Oooooh yumm!

  32. Carly July 20, 2012 at 7:35 pm #

    Today I did a five mile run(: It was perfect weather for a run too; cloudy! My dad is like so obsessed with biking and the Tour de France, it would be awesome to win
