Seafood may be one of the healthiest proteins available thanks to its favorable omega-3-to-omega-6 ratio, but it can be a tough sell if you’re not already accustomed to eating it. This simple Roasted Garlic and Herb Cod was actually the first seafood recipe I tried after giving up vegetarianism for the autoimmune protocol, and it couldn’t have been easier to prepare. Mix your spices. Rub down the fish. Bake. You’ve got the perfect protein for your meal in 20 minutes flat with hardly any work at all. This recipe can be made with any type of whitefish. I choose cod for its relatively neutral flavor, but the spice blend also works well with catfish, tilapia… you name it. What’s not to love?
The spice mix has a touch of heat from the ginger and garlic, but is mostly a super-savory blend that’s more “spice-heavy” than “spicy-hot”. Feel free to adjust how much of the blend you actually put on the fish. I like to use all of it because I’m not particularly fond of the taste of fish, while my husband wishes I’d use less. You can also adjust how much lemon juice you top your fish with to help offset any “fishy” taste.
Find Out Your Genetic Risk
23andMe is the first and only do-it-yourself genetic test. Combined with ancestry information, it’s an incredible value compared to getting all of that data from your doctor, and they’re adding new analyses all the time. They frequently run specials around the holidays, too, with buy-one-get-one deals or $50 off. Not only is it a fun opportunity to investigate your family tree, see the likelihood you’d wind up with your physical traits, and connect with distant relatives all over the world, but it’s an invaluable opportunity to learn about your genetic inclinations toward disease. My own experience was revolutionary, both for me and my husband!
