Spring is my favorite season, but again, I love them all. For now, I embrace all things spring, the vibrant season that brings telltale notes of all that is fresh and new; a beautiful reminder to celebrate all the good things that are given to us in this life.

After battling and beating cancer last year, finding the cleanest foods and supplements for my diet almost became an obsession. I would spend hours and hours researching and adapting recipes to taste great, while also being a powerhouse for healing not only my own body, but that of my clients. Sneaking power foods all day long!

After health issues coupled with my love as a personal chef, I dug deep and learned as much as I could about the latest nutrition research – not just to help my own body heal, but to advance my research on nutrition. along with my passion for cooking, and go for everything I love and know in this new season.

So this is what I’m doing right now: health and wellness coaching!

One of the most important things I’ve learned is this: Life isn’t about living on a diet. It’s about learning a new way of eating and living that becomes a lifestyle. It includes a good night’s sleep, less stress and more loving. It’s not about focusing on what we can’t have, but on everything we can have! Our bodies are designed to save our lives, so let’s help it and get back to real food in 2022!

Here’s a delicious and super easy recipe that’s healthy, light, and perfectly elegant for a beautiful spring evening.

Oven-roasted sea bass with ginger-lime sauce and roasted asparagus

(Preparation: 10 min. Cooking: 12 min. 2 servings)

  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons Bragg’s Liquid Aminos or Coconut Aminos
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
  • 1 tablespoon chopped, peeled fresh ginger root
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped shallot
  • 5 tbsp olive oil
  • 2.6-ounce sea bass fillets (about ¾ inch thick each)
  • 1 bunch fresh asparagus, tough ends removed
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1-2 tsp Garlic and Herb Mrs. dash

Directions:

Preheat oven to 450 F. Mix first 5 ingredients and 4 teaspoons oil in a small bowl.

Brush a 9 inch diameter glass tart pan (or a rimmed baking sheet) with the remaining 2 teaspoons oil. If using a baking tray, line it with parchment paper or foil. Arrange fish in prepared dish; turn to jacket. Sprinkle the fish with salt and pepper; spoon 1 tablespoon sauce over each fillet.

Toss asparagus in a little olive oil, salt, pepper, and Mrs. Dash. Place the asparagus on a small, separate baking sheet (or add asparagus to the same pan as sea bass) so they don’t overlap and roast with the sea bass for the remaining 6 minutes, so they are perfectly crisp and tender.

Broil the fish until just opaque in the center, about 12 minutes. Cover the fish with the remaining sauce and serve.
