PROJECT YOU FINDINGS (2/6/2009)

By Larry



*Happiest of Birthdays to Jay D., Michael K., Megan P. and Aunt Carol in San Diego (can't wait to celebrate in warm weather)!!

*"Yeh, I didn't do my cardio last week because I was out of town and didn't have one continuous half-hour in which to do it." Obviously, keeping your heartrate elevated for a whole half hour is the most beneficial. However, life isn't always ideal. So, you can split that cardio into several 15- or 10-minute chunks throughout the day rather than do it all at once. That solves that problem!!

*There will be no Project You Findings next week due to Project You Fitness's winter holiday.

Lean Fish Tacos

Ingredients:
*6 oz. firm white fish (halibut, monkfish or cod)

*2 teaspoons non-fat mayonnaise
*2 corn tortillas
*1/4 cup finely shredded cabbage
*2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
*1/4 cup fresh salsa, drained

1) Spray a medium nonstick frying pan with cooking spray and place over medium-high heat.
2) Coat fish with taco seasoning; transfer to hot pan.
3) Cook fish until lightly browned and flakes in the center.
4) Mix taco sauce and mayonnaise in small bowl.
5) Remove fish from pan and place in 2nd bowl. Cover to keep warm.
6) Place one tortilla at a time in the pan to heat. When warm on one side, flip. When both sides are warm, transfer to a plate.
