Easy Baked Cod

An Easy Baked Cod recipe perfect for a healthy, high protein, lean dinner any night of the week. Season it up with your favorite seasonings for a delicious, nourishing meal!

In hot pursuit of an ultra nutritious dinner recipe that gives you intense health benefits without much effort? 

Welcome, m’dear, to that very recipe!

Baked cod is your ticket to an easy, pleasy evening in. You get a healthy dinner that is somewhat fancy that requires hardly any time! If you’re up on the news, you already know The Rock eats a boat load of cod to feed those muscles! Let’s talk more about the nutrient profile.

Health Benefits of Cod:

Did you know cod is super high in protein and super low in fat? If you’re looking to up your protein game and are conscious of your fat intake, cod is a marvelous lean protein source. Plus, you get vitamins and minerals (specifically, Vitamin B12, Vitamin B6, selenium, and phosphorous), making cod nutrient-dense fuel for your body.

6 ounces of cod contains 30 grams of protein, 140 calories, 0 grams of carbohydrate, and just over 1 gram of fat.

Can you even believe it??

The small amount of fat the cod does have is rich in omega-3 fatty acids (as opposed to omega-6), which is marvelous for brain health, hormone health, digestion, etc. In addition, cod is lower in mercury than many other types of fish or seafood (like tuna).

Aside from its health benefits, I love that cod is very light and subtle in flavor (in other words, it’s not fishy), which makes it very easy to flavor to your heart’s delight.

Greek Chicken Spinach Salad (Paleo, Whole30, Keto)

Herby Greek Chicken Salad with baked chicken, spinach, avocado, red onion,pine nuts, and an amazing Greek salad dressing. This fresh and flavorful dinner salad recipe is a filling, clean meal worthy of putting on repeat!

The good news is, this spinach salad is cool, crisp and refreshing on a hot summer’s day (not to mention super nutritious and filling!).

The bad news is…we must cook chicken. From a scientific standpoint, this does require heat.

I don’t make up the rules. Nor do I often follow them.

But the good news is (part two), the chicken is crazy tender and lovely, and can just as easily be grilled or baked…pick your passion!

AND the good news is (part three) this salad is CRAZY herby and will take you away on a mental vacation to the beautiful Mediterranean.

At first glance, this recipe appears to call for eleventy billion ingredients; however, you’ll notice many of them are herbs or spices for the salad dressing and the chicken marinade, many of which cross-over to both the dressing and the marinade. 

AND most of which you likely already have in your spice collection!

Don’t worry, the process is easy – it’s a 3-stepper.

We..

  1. Make the dressing
  2. Marinate and bake the chicken (okay, that’s two steps, but three always sounds more enticing than four).
  3. Assemble the salad.

Here’s how this plays out in detail:
