Cod Soup that is LOW GI

Everyone wants taste, health, quick and cheap.  And so, when bundled into one dish, you have ANOTHER JZ FITNESS approved meal.  Yup, it is doable and all YOU have to do is follow my lead, buy these ingredients and cook em up.  These dishes, you will notice, take no more than 20 minutes to make.  This dish took me at most 15 minutes.  I guess I should share with you if you don’t already know.  The life of a fitness expert is go-go-go-go from 6:30AM until 9PM at night.  When do I rest?  I get my butt to bed lately no later than 11pm.  Is that enough sleep?  I actually got to bed the other night at 9:30, can you believe it?

Anyway, this soup was a hit.  I shared it with a lawyer, a sick woman, a post-surgery woman, a sister of the post-surgery woman and a very picky eater next door who was melting over this dish (in a good way!)

And so, since the verdict is Yum yum in the tum tum, I share with you:

What to get:

  1. Organic tomato roasted red pepper soup – low sodium from Trader Joes
  2. Shredded collard greens
  3. Avocado
  4. Wild cod (3 fillets)
  5. Coconut oil
  6. Organic broccoli
  7. Fresh lemons
  8. Ginger
  9. Paprika
  10. Turmeric

What in the world to do:

Start out grilling the Cod in 2 tbsp of coconut oil with sliced lemons and squeeze the lemon juice on top.  Cook the cod.  In the meanwhile, start a pot of the soup mixture and throw in the collard greens, broccoli and avocado while sprinkling in some ginger, turmeric and paprika.  Once the cod fillets are cooked, then cut them up into cubes and place into the soup pot.  The coconut flavor from the soup adds such a beautiful dimension to the soup.  It is a very thick tasting soup so brace yourself.  This is truly a gourmet dish.  Hope you enjoy!
