Citrus Baked Tilapia:
Last night I needed a break from everyone! After I picked the kids up from school, accompanied my son Tyler to trumpet practice, did homework with Tyler and Aliyah and cooked dinner for the family, I needed desperately to do something for me! Yes, I needed to be selfish!
So, I left the kids with my husband, booked myself into our local Korean Spa for a soak in the hot tubs, dry sauna, wet sauna and a 1 1/2 hour full body scrub with a cucumber facial. Wow! Why don’t I do this more often? And to top it all off, as I was walking toward the saunas in my bath towel I laid my eyes on a medical scale and it dawned on me that I hadn’t weighed myself in a few weeks. Eureka! I had lost another 5 pounds! I was so thrilled because I’ve been consistent with not only my workout routine of 5 days on and 2 days off but also with my healthy food regime.
It feels good to Keep Hope Alive and see the benefits! Dinner last night was part of my healthy choice dinner which was my Citrus Baked Tilapia. This recipe is easy and absolutely delicious. If you’re trying to eat lite for dinner try this Citrus Baked Tilapia recipe!
