Recipe: Fish, sauteed potatoes and green beans.
Today I had my best meal since starting my diet, mainly because I have decided to start eating fish and potatoes. I had stopped eating these mainly based on the recommendations of Ehret (the mucusless eating system), who abstains from animal products and starchy food, but I have since found lots of evidence about the benefits of eating fish. There's probably nothing particularly healthy about eating potatoes but they certainly fill the belly!
Fish Choose your favorite sea fish fillet. Marinate with lime juice for one hour. Fry with olive oil and germinated sprouts until both sides of the fish are slightly browned.
Serve the fish covered with the sprouts.
Boil in water until a butter knife can be inserted into the potatoes (don't leave them too long).
Slice into 1cm thick rounds.
Fry potato rounds in olive oil with your favorite herbs until all pieces are crispy golden-brown on both sides.
Serve next to the fish.
Fry frozen green bean segments in olive oil until soft enough to eat (slightly crunchy is good).
