So, the pescatarian lifestyle is not for everyone and this brief interview proves it.  After interviewing Stephany Baldwin, we can learn that not everyone is willing to make the transition to a healthier lifestyle.

Love sushi but don't know where to find any decent sushi places in Indiana, Pa.?  Well, look no more.  Sinobi Express in the Indiana Mall has a wide variety of reasonably priced sushi for everyone to enjoy.

 

I was so impressed with my visit to Sinobi Express this week, I wanted to share my experience.

 

We started our meal with a bowl of Miso Soup for $1.75.  The soup consisted of soy bean soup with tofu.

Meatless Monday

Thanks to www.takepart.com, I found this delicous recipe to make Crazy Sexy Nori Rolls.  Don't worry, if you aren't a fan of seaweed, you can substitute it with lettuce!

 

Ingredients:

4 nori seaweed sheets
2 cups short grain brown rice
1/2 cucumber, thinly sliced
1 carrot, thinly sliced
1 avocado, sliced
2 scallions, thinly sliced
1/2 cup sprouts
1/4 cup grated ginger
1/2 cup tamari
2 tbsp. tahini
1 lemon
 

Directions:

• Place your nori sheet shiny side down. Spread a thin layer of rice evenly over the nori.

• Mix the juice from 1/2 the lemon into the tahini to make a thin sauce. Spread a very thin layer of the tahini sauce on the rice.

• Cut the other 1/2 of the lemon into a few slices.

• Place cucumber, carrot, avocado, scallions and sprouts on top of the rice. Squeeze a slice of lemon over the toppings.

• Roll nori tightly from the bottom and wet your fingers with water to seal the roll.

      • Either cut up into small pieces, or simply cut in half!

      • Mix the grated ginger into the tamari and use it as a dipping sauce

Grilled Fish Tacos

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Love tacos but not the meat?  I found this delicious recipe to make grilled fish tacos.

First, gather all of the ingredients you will need.

Marinade

  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons lime zest
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons honey
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon seafood seasoning, such as Old Bay
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce, or to taste
  • 1 pound tilapia fillets, cut into chunks
  •  

    Dressing

  • 1 (8 ounce) container light sour cream
  • 1/2 cup adobo sauce from chipotle peppers
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons lime zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon seafood seasoning, such as Old Bay
  • salt and pepper to taste
  •  

    Toppings

  • 1 (10 ounce) package tortillas
  • 3 ripe tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 1 bunch cilantro, chopped
  • 1 small head cabbage, cored and shredded
  • 2 limes, cut in wedges
  •  

    Directions

    1. To make the marinade, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, lime juice, lime zest, honey, garlic, cumin, chili powder, seafood seasoning, black pepper, and hot sauce in a bowl until blended. Place the tilapia in a shallow dish, and pour the marinade over the fish. Cover, and refrigerate 6 to 8 hours.
    2. To make the dressing, combine the sour cream and adobo sauce in a bowl. Stir in the lime juice, lime zest, cumin, chili powder, seafood seasoning. Add salt, and pepper in desired amounts. Cover, and refrigerate until needed.
    3. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil grate. Set grate 4 inches from the heat.
    4. Remove fish from marinade, drain off any excess and discard marinade. Grill fish pieces until easily flaked with a fork, turning once, about 9 minutes.
    5. Assemble tacos by placing fish pieces in the center of tortillas with desired amounts of tomatoes, cilantro, and cabbage; drizzle with dressing. To serve, roll up tortillas around fillings, and garnish with lime wedges.

     

    Also

    The marinated fish in this recipe can also be cooked in the oven. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bake fish in preheated oven until it easily flakes with a fork, 9 to 11 minutes. Assemble tacos according to directions. Mahi-mahi can be substituted for the tilapia.

    Pescatarian?

    | No Comments | No TrackBacks

    So you are probably thinking to yourself "what is a pescatarian?"  Well, I am here to tell you what it is and how you can transition into that lifestyle.

    The term pescatarian was first used in 1993 and has an alternative spelling of pescetarian.  A pescatrian is a person whose diet includes fish but no meat.  It is up to the person if they want to include eggs and dairy in their diet.

    For me, the hardest part has been giving up certain meats like chicken and some pork.  I have eliminated steak from my diet for over 10 years.  Working at Domino's Pizza makes it slightly difficult to give up altogether on meat but I am working very hard.

    I did not choose to live the pescatarian lifestyle because I wanted to be healthy.  I chose this after I viewed an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashian's.  They approached Khloe to be a spokesperson for PETA.  After I saw this, I looked PETA up online and was horrified to learn all of this information about animal cruelty.  I decided I wanted to do my part to help end animal cruelty.

    Throughout the semester, I will be blogging about pescatarian information, recipes, restaurants with menus suitable for pescatarians and more!
