A Monday-Worthy Recipe

Monday sucks.  I’ll spare you the details, but today I was tired and cranky and still had splinters in my hands from the Spartan.

(Recap still in the works…too tired today)

I planned on a 4-mile run this morning but about 100 meters in I realized it was not gonna happen and I just did a 2 1/2 mile run and went over to the gym over lunch hour for some strength work:

Deadlift 6 x 5 @ 70%


…I did one of six rounds and realized it wasn’t going to happen, so I compromised with 5 x 3 @ 75% (115 lbs)

Back Squat 5-5-5-5-5


Results:  65-75-95-95-100

I was dragging today and got home way late, but luckily tonight’s dinner was a simple one:

Macadamia-Crusted Tilapia

4 Tilapia Fillets
1 c Macadamia Nuts
1 Egg
Salt and Pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Pate each fillet dry with paper towels.  Grind nuts in a food processor until fine.  Beat egg.  Dip fillets in egg, then coat with nuts on each side.  Arrange in a greased baking dish, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and bake for 15 minutes.

Prep + Cook = 20 minutes.  Seriously, it took The Man longer to make the salad.  On a sh*tty Monday when all I needed was a sinfully delicious dinner in as little time as humanly possible, this was it.  It was light, buttery, and oh, so good for you.  (Nutri-Geek Alert:  Mac’s have the best omega-3 to 6 ratio of any nut!)
