Tilapia Roulade

I've been on the quest this week for a new, different recipe. I've been taxing my brain, combining ingredients and thinking of what to do.

I get bored, so being a food blogger is perfect for me. Something new everyday. I don't do: Monday - meatless, Tuesday - spaghetti, type of menus well. I like different EVERY day. Once in a great while I will repeat a recipe, but very rarely. I know that is odd, but that is just the way I work. haha

So last night I made this new dish. I'll be honest, this was NOT my best dish. Oh, don't get me wrong, it wasn't "bad" but it wasn't fabulous and I like fabulous anything less and I feel I failed. I most likely will do this one again and change it up but for now, I wanted to share my dish with you.

It was easy, it was tasty but weird. Have you ever ate something and thought , "wow, this is weird" but could not stop eating it? That was last night. My husband kept saying "okay this is weird, not bad, but weird" and kept right on eating it.

Being as we have an empty nest, I have the freedom to do weird dishes, my boys would not have ever touched this. They love shrimp and crabs but not fish (when they were growing up) and 2 of the 3 have always been a very picky eaters. My husband however will eat dirt, so I can try anything and not worry about it going to waste.

Tilapia Roulade
6 Tilapia fillets
6 slices of bacon (cooked)
6 dill pickle spears
grainy mustard
smoked paprika
cracked pepper
sea salt

First fry your bacon and set it aside. Next take your fillet, spread grainy mustard on, place a slice of bacon and pickle, now roll it up and secure with a tooth pick. Sprinkle the roll with smoked paprika, fresh cracked pepper and a dash of sea salt. Continue until you have all six 6 complete. Now place in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.
Serve with a nice roll, salad and side dish.

Fruit Nachos

Hey howdy hey it is Wednesday! Yeah yeah I know, corny. That's what happens when my sinus' go crazy and my head is stopped up, I can't think as clearly.

How is your week going? Mine is soooooooooooo much better than last week, let me tell you!

During last week and the busy schedule, I did not always get my workout in and my protein smoothie. What I did do, was make sure I had something healthy each morning.

One day I made these great fruit nachos. Quick easy and it was super filling, here is what I did:

Fruit Nachos
1 apple cored and sliced
1 banana, peeled and sliced
4 strawberries sliced
Arrange on a plate, visually appealing food always taste better.
Protein sauce: 1 TBSP WOWbutter, 1 TBSP raw applesauce, 1 tsp raw honey, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, stir well and drop/drizzle on top.
Sprinkle with chopped nuts (I used cashew and pecan)
Melted dark chocolate drizzled on top as well, you can omit this if you want.

I may not be lovely but it was really good, filling and healthy. Great as an afternoon snack, post workout or breakfast meal.
