we’re back! and feeling excited and inspired for another year of recipe posts. we hope you like following along because we have such a great time putting these together and gathering inspiration. i used to hit the new year with a sense of guilt over all of the indulging i’d done over the holidays but i really tried to not do that this year and instead just focus on portions, eating less sugar and more vegetables with every meal. i’m working towards eating a more plant based diet this year, which is not to say i’m cutting out meat just not making it the focus of every dinner. we especially love when you tell us if you made a recipe and how it turned out so please don’t be shy about commenting or tagging us on instagram! today we’re featuring fish taco bowls which is something Ivan has been asking to make for soooo long. and i’m so glad we finally did! they were delicious and if you’re eating on the light side you can total skip the rice! – joanie

• cook 1 cup of white rice according to the package’s directions. once cooked put into a large bowl and mix in the cilantro, salt, olive oil and lime juice. fluff rice with a fork.

• to make the coleslaw, mix all the coleslaw ingredients together and set aside in the fridge. the longer it sits the more flavor will settle in.

• in a small bowl mix in the paprika, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder and salt. coat each side of the fish. in a skillet heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on low to medium heat. cook each side of the fish for 4-5 minutes on each side.

    Wow – this looks delicious! Wondering if you meant Mahi Mahi, rather than Maui Maui? Not a big fan of Cod, so I’ll be using the alternative.
