Summer Ceviche

In the summertime we eat pretty light. I even prefer not to turn on the oven so things like chicken salad, tuna salad, lettuce wraps and ceviche are staples.

So here's the Ceviche so easy and really good! 

First put your apron on.

Cast of characters ...I use tilapia but any fish you like will do. Roma tomatoes, cilantro, onion, pepper, Lawry's salt, Italian seasoning and I use a Hawaiian spice my sister in law gave us. Really any seasoning you like will work.

Season up your fish to your liking tilapia is pretty bland so I season it up real nice. I also only use 3 filets and save the fourth for the hubs lunch.

Put the fish in the oven for about 10 min on 350.

While the fish cooks chop your veggies...


I use four Roma tomatoes and I squeeze the juicy party out because I don't want it too mushy.


Chop all the tomatoes, one whole white onion, cilantro (about 1/4 cup) or more if you love it, like us and one jalapeƱo. Mix them all together. Them chill it until the fish is ready.

 Pull the fish out and let it cool.

Once cool chop it up

Mix into your veggie mix

Squeeze a whole lime

Let it chill for at least 30 min

Serve with chips of your choice, extra lime and you favorite summertime beverage. These chips are Benos, they are black bean chips very few ingredients and low carb. I also like mine with plain keep it real crackers ...that's right Lorena! But anything, tortillas, tortilla chips it's alllll good!

One more shot...

That's the good stuff!!

Happy middle of the week!

One of My Favorite Things...

Detox water! It's so easy, it's pretty and it's good for you! All you need is a cucumber, a lemon and a few springs of mint.

I can usually get two pitchers out of these ingredients. I like more cucumber in mine than lemon. I only use half a cucumber and 1small lemon. Then once that pitcher is gone I leave the cucumber and lemon in it and refill. Now, I will replace the mint so it's fresh and strong. 

See isn't it pretty? I drink it first thing in the morning. They say it will aid in digestion and keep your skin looking fresh and young...who doesn't need that? Plus I like how it looks sitting in my frig when I open the door. 

I also like to use the mint in my tea...fresh stuff is the best! Sometimes I feel like I need to detox and refresh there is so much in the world today that is exhausting and draining and we should take the time to do good things for our bodies and our souls. This weekend I have lots of time scheduled with my sweet friends so I am looking forward to refreshing my humor and possibly my dance moves ;)

What do you like in your water??
