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.

  • My husband just found these pizza crusts at Walmart! I’m so excited to give them a try!
  • Last week, I mentioned not feeling well. Well, according to my @Fitbit, my heat rate jumped much higher than usual, and then dropped much lower than usual. These changes coincided with dizzy spells. While I don’t know exactly what was going on yet, it’s really nice to be able to bring this information to my doctor. When you have chronic illness, the more information you can bring, the better.
  • I’m home alone for the first time in basically nearly seven years. I volunteered this morning at the elementary school to help with picture day but got home earlier than expected, so I’m sitting on the couch with my feet up watching a grown up television show and eating lunch before I need to pick up the preschoolers!!!! Don’t tell on me!!
  • When you have chronic illness, this is what putting your health first looks like some days. I’ve been having a lot of symptoms of severe dehydration for a few days, which is entirely common with diabetes insipidus, but still a bit scary. I try hard to keep my symptoms in check and this is the worst flare up I’ve had in years. So, there will be extra rest until this passes. I don’t have to like it, but I do have to accept it.
  • Oh, hey 8am soccer practice 😴
  • My baby started preschool this week. I ruined my favorite workout shorts. I spent two hours at the dentist today getting my teeth drilled. I’m cranky and hangry and I wanted some darn ice cream. This stuff isn’t paleo, but it is Macro Friendly and actually good. Like, delicious. And I don’t mean, “delicious for healthier ice cream,” I mean actually delicious.
  • 😭😭when your @iab_mfg shorts accidentally end up in the dryer.
  • 🤷🏼‍♀️
  • I work on my health so that when my kids want me to play with them, I can.
  • Truth😂🤣😂🤣🤷🏼‍♀️
  • I slept like junk last night. I had to be up much earlier than I was ready for this morning. I spent my morning thinking about taking a nap. Once the big kids were at school, though, I cleaned the house, put on my workout clothes and got my workout on. Not because I wanted to, not because I felt like it, not because I was motivated, but because I have discipline. Motivation might help you get started, but it tends to disappear when things get hard. Create discipline. Create habits, and commit to yourself the same way to commit to everyone else in your life.
  • I’ve been meal prepping all afternoon, so dinner was a bowl full of some of this and some of that. Super Greens from @bjswholesale, baked chicken breast, bacon crumbles, and topped with some blue cheese crumbles. Super easy and the kids are eating it. 😉
