Food for thought Friday or thoughts of food for Friday?

Recommended Posts

Which one is going through your mind today? For me, food. The weekend is always tricky for me to eat healthy. It's usually days filled with friends, family, and of course FOOD. Why is it when we all gather, food is always involved? Something I try to do is keep almonds in my purse when I start to feel like I want a light snack (but what I really want is a Snickers) & filling snack. What is your favorite tip for staying healthy over the weekend?


Whenever we have little gatherings at our home we like to serve Tilapia Ceviche. This is a close recipe on how we serve it. It can be served as a great dip. It's refreshing, light, low in carbs (careful with the chips), and usually a big hit! 


I borrowed this from a BeachBody website.

Shrimp Ceviche


This Baja California-style ceviche is made with shrimp, fresh lime juice, and refreshing cucumber. Make it as mild or spicy as you want by adjusting the chili peppers to your taste. Serving it in endive shells is a clever and crunchy alternative to fried tortilla chips.

Total Time: 24 hrs. 15 min.
Prep Time: 15 min.
Cooking Time: None
Yield: 8 servings, 2 each

½ cup fresh lime juice
1 lb. cooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined, coarsely chopped
1 medium cucumber, finely chopped
½ medium red onion, finely chopped
2 medium Serrano chiles (or jalapenos), seeded and deveined, finely chopped (optional)
1 medium tomato, finely chopped
1 medium ripe avocado, finely chopped
2 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh cilantro
¼ tsp. sea salt
16 endive leaves

1. Combine lime juice and shrimp in a medium bowl; mix well. Marinate, covered, in the refrigerator, for 6 to 24 hours.
2. Combine shrimp mixture, cucumber, onion, chiles (if desired), and tomato in a large bowl; mix well.
3. Add avocado, cilantro, and salt; toss gently to blend.
