Come the New Year, there are not-so-subtle enticements reminding us that now is the time to improve our lives. Everywhere we look, there are offers for gym memberships, weight-loss plans, and career transition programs, among other programs and products. According to USA.gov, the Federal Government’s official web portal, “eating healthy food” is one of the most popular New Year’s resolutions. As someone who adopted a pescetarian diet more than 30 years ago, I’ve learned how to keep my New Year’s food resolutions by shopping smartly for products that help to promote and enhance my (and my family’s) health.
Much of my diet is vegetarian, which includes organic fruits and vegetables, but I eat fish twice a week too. Over the years, my friends and family have assumed (teasingly) that eating healthy food means forfeiting flavor. Not so! Quality seasonings, dressings, and marinades and a bit of the cook’s imagination can help create meals that anyone, vegetarian or not, will enjoy. Litehouse Foods’ products in my refrigerator and pantry means having flavor options for hundreds of healthy meals.
Litehouse Greek Dressing
Litehouse Vinaigrette dressings, for example, make wonderful marinades. For the recipe below, I marinated cod fillets for 15 minutes in Litehouse Greek Vinaigrette Dressing then roasted the fish in a 400-degree oven for 15 minutes. A finishing squeeze of lemon and a sprinkling of Litehouse Instantly Fresh Dill results in a delicious, tender fillet with a few surprising bites of feta (from the dressing). If you enjoy seafood in restaurants but haven’t prepared seafood at home very often, then you’re not alone. The average American eats far less than the weekly 8 ounces of fish recommended by the USDA. Maintaining a resolve to include more seafood in your (and your family’s) diet is easy and convenient with products from Litehouse Foods. The freshest vegetables, fruits, and salads on your table merit being served with ingredients that are free of preservatives, MSG, and high-fructose corn syrup. Litehouse Dressings, Litehouse Fruit Dips and Litehouse Vegetable Dips are without such ingredients. If eating healthier foods is on your list of resolutions for 2014, remember then when you plan meals and shop for fresh foods, Litehouse Products are harmonious with your goal.
