What is Barramundi?

Barramundi is a fish that is native to Australia. It has a mild flavor, is low in calories, and is loaded with heart-healthy fats. Since it has a mild flavor, I have found it to be quite kid-friendly, and it doesn’t leave a strong fish odor after being cooked. It works really well in most recipes, is easy to cook, and is packed with protein. Plus, it is a hardy fish that can be farmed sustain-ably, without any hormones, chemicals, or antibiotics. It is a mid-priced option at our local BJs Wholesale Club, where I buy it, which makes it great for feeding our large family.

Fried Fish

Let me be clear about one thing right from the start, fried fish will never be healthy. This is definitely a healthier option, but fried food is still fried food. Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, this fish is so good. The batter itself can be changed if you want to change up the flavor. Add a little chili powder and paprika to make it a bit spicy, or even a few drops of hot sauce. You could add a little lime juice or a little garlic powder. I kept the batter pretty neutral flavored on purpose because it keeps the recipe a bit more kid-friendly.

I chose coconut oil to fry the fish in because it’s light, healthy and has a medium smoke point. Next time, however, I think I will use avocado oil.

  • Props to all of those ladies that can workout and still look cute. I am not one of them. 😂🤣Also, @erinoprea might be trying to kill me with her do anywhere workouts. 😂🤣😂🤣You should give them a try.
  • Finally some sunshine 🌞
  • Healthy doesn’t have to be complicated. Chicken sausage, sweet potatoes, bell peppers and broccoli (the peppers and broccoli I cut up yesterday for the kid’s veggie tray) on a sheet pan. Drizzle with avocado oil, sprinkle with salt, pepper, oregano, and some basil. Cook at 400 degrees for 20 minutes and you’re good to go.
  • Easy chicken stir fry for dinner tonight! I used chicken, veggies that I prepped earlier in the week for the kids’ veggie tray and the Stir Fry Sauce from @nomnompaleo. I can’t use orange just though, because it’s bad for my interstitial cystitis, so I used the juice from one of my kid’s juice boxes.... adapt and overcome, right?
  • Yesterday was a struggle with my health. I wanted to work out, but I knew that my body needed rest. It’s okay to rest. It’s okay to recover.
  • My three year old made me this crown and insists that I wear it all the time. She says it’s because I’m the Queen. 👸🏼👸🏼💁🏼‍♀️Clearly, she gets it.... 😂🤣
  • This week has been a rough one. The negative nancies were out in full force, but at the end of the day, their negativity has nothing to do with me, and everything to do with their own struggles. All I can do is offer kindness is return and keep doing what works for me. 🤷🏼‍♀️
  • There’s a 💯 percent chance that I would have completely forgotten that today was cinco de Mayo had I not gotten an email from @nomnompaleo today linking me to this recipe for Instant Pot Carnitas. So, clearly, I had to make it, and it’s SOOOOOO yummy! 😉
  • Me: I have so many things to do this week. 
Also Me: Why don’t I made homemade sun butter cups for the PTO bake sale this week....🤦🏼‍♀️
The recipe is from @daniellewalker
  • #momhack I usually keep a veggie tray in my fridge. The kids pick out what goes in it (this week, they wanted some fruit in there too). Then, when they ask me a snack for the 10 millionth time in a day, I tell them to pull out the veggie tray. Sometimes, I load the center up with cheese cubes, too. It’s easy and healthy. I prep it once and reload it as needed throughout the week.
  • Will workout for 🍕🍕Wall sprint intervals, followed by 4 rounds of the workout on the second slide. And this shirt from @bejuststrong is super breathable and comfortable. Use code JESSTO10 at juststrong.com to save 10% and try it yourself!
  • Stomach bugs, head colds, sore throats, ear infections, and flu 😷 have all invaded our house in the past few weeks. Most days, I haven’t even hit my step goal, let alone my workout goals. But that’s part of the process too. Knowing when to rest is so important, and I still struggle with it. Today, I was able to get back to my workouts. I did two of the equipment free workouts from my latest blogpost. 10 second sprint intervals and the squats-pushups-pull-ups workout.
