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.

Nightshade-Free AIP Curry made without chilis, bell peppers, or tomatoes. A Thai curry recipe for those who follow AIP, a whole food diet, paleo, or keto | #glutenfree #AIP #paleo

Curry is a big, big deal in my life. I make it frequently, eat it frequently, and get a kick out of experimenting with new flavors, easier methods, and seasonal produce. Just take a dive into my Curry archives to see all sorts of seasonally-inspired curry options, both Thai and Indian, vegetarian and protein-packed!

While nothing beats a great authentic Thai curry, I have been meaning to develop nightshade-free AIP curry recipes for ages.  I had a reader request a nightshade-free version of the Instant Pot Chicken Tikka Masala I recently posted. Indeed, I fully intend to deliver; however, I wanted to tap the curry first.

First things first. Let’s define both nightshades and AIP.

Turmeric Kiwi Protein Smoothie |

My mealtimes all revolve around protein. If you follow me on Instagram, I probably sound like a broken record, as I have mentioned many times in the past, I take a but first, protein approach to food. I make sure I get at least 20 grams of protein at every meal, and in the event that I snack between meals, I make sure my snacks are protein-centric as well.

In addition to making sure I get adequate protein throughout the day, I also tend to drink a smoothie for either breakfast or lunch. That may seem like a pretty light meal, but my smoothies are typically on the higher calorie end in the way of smoothies, and have a pretty decent macro profile.

I’ve found that having one liquid meal per day also helps with digestion – simply put, liquid is far easier for your body to process than solid food. In this sense, protein smoothies are currently a big deal in my life, as I usually drink them after I workout to replenish muscle glycogen and feed my broken down muscle fibers with protein.
