September 26, 2013

In the last year I have gained about 20 lbs, to be fair I haven’t been exercising as much, I haven’t been paying attention to what I eat and I think some of it is probably natural “woman weight” as I am getting older. Anyway I am on a mission to have a more balanced diet, which is likely be reflected in TYT.com. Before you jump to any conclusions this doesn’t mean that I won’t be featuring any decadent, rich recipes; no one wants to eat like a rabbit but there’s nothing wrong with being a little more health conscious. This Smoked Marlin salad is the beginning of lots of healthy yummy recipes that are easy to whip up. Eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring and together we’ll learn how.

      Your local supermarket should have smoked marlin; marlin is a large fish with a spear-like “nose”. Smoked marlin has a very distinct fish flavour.
