Like a Fish Out of Water
It turns out that when you buy life insurance you get poked with needles. Sometimes, the return from those pokes is a test result with eyebrow-raising numbers and figures that tell you it is time to reevaluate your diet.
It has not been easy. Let’s face it, I’m no Laura, Ann or Tiffany. So, a few weeks ago I enlisted the help of holistic nutritionist Leanne Vogel at Healthful Pursuit. She takes the guess work out of eating ‘good.’ For $15 a month you get four weeks worth of 3 day meal plans (they’ll last you the whole week, I promise) that include a shopping list and all the recipes. Dummy proof. I highly recommend 🙂
But this blog is all about Caymanian food and Caymanian food isn’t always about being ‘healthy.’ Unless we’re doing fish. We can rock a fish dish.
