Fish Sticks The Clean Eating Way

by Nicci on 05/16/2011

Do you ever eat fish sticks as a kid?  I remember eating them a couple times, but only at a restaurant.

Well tonight, Chris and I ate a cleaner, healthier recipe. I had tilapia filets sitting in the freezer and I wasn’t feeling grilled or broiled tilapia tonight…kind of boring.


Fish Sticks


  • 3 Tilapia filets (serves 2)
  • 3 slices of whole wheat bread
  • 1 egg
  • seasoning of choice

Directions: Use a food processor to make your slices of bread into crumbs. Mix egg and bread crumbs, in a bowl. Chop tilapia until it is fine, then dip in bread mixture. Shape fish sticks into rectangular shape, add sticks to lightly oiled skillet. Brown  on each side for 4 minutes until golden brown.

Fitness: Monday’s Fit Camp was brutal but I did burn 700 calories.

Complete each set 2-3 times

  • Jump rope x 30, squat press x 8
  • Tire pull, froggers x 8
  • Push ups X 10, hose X 20
  • Burpees x 8,  shoulder press 7-6-5-4-3-2-1 front, side, back
  • Arc Trainer, 40 resistance for 60 sec. staying above 130 in between each workout set.

Great workout and dinner to end Monday!

Vegetarian Yakisoba

by Nicci on 06/13/2010

 My Grandmother made the best Yakisoba, that she learned to cook while living in Japan, when my grandfather was in the air force. I decided today would be the best day for noodles; I can never get enough of carbs in noodle form.

Vegetarian Yakisoba


  • Carrots, chopped
  • Bell peppers, chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, chopped
  • 1 tbsp of sesame oil (olive oil will work)
  • Cooked whole wheat spaghetti
  • Morning Star Chick n’ strips (vegetarian)
  • Kikkoman Soy Sauce, about 3 tbsps


While pasta is cooking, Heat the sesame oil in a pan with the garlic and 1 tbsp of the soy sauce.  Put the  carrots, red and green bell peppers in the pan with the rest of the soy sauce until the veggies start to wilt and soften. Put into a large bowl. Add the cooked pasta, chicken (pre-cooked)  and vegetables. Toss until well blended. (You can add any vegetables that you like; it’s great with cabbage but I was out.)

Vegan Tofu Scramble

by Nicci on 05/16/2010

I can’t believe I opened the fridge this morning and had no eggs. Eeeck!  I love eating scrambled eggs every Sunday morning, but I guess I will survive. 

This called for trying a tofu scramble…one last  time.  The last time I made a tofu scramble it turned out really bad…what a huge waste of tofu, that I just tossed out. That’s what happens when you get lazy and don’t drain all the water out.

Surprise! Suprise! It turned out right this morning…extremely DELICIOUS.



  • 1/2  package of extra firm or firm tofu
  • 1/4 bell pepper (diced)
  • 1/4 onion (diced)
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • oregano
  • parsley
  • cumin
  • salt & pepper

*I adjusted the amount of onions, peppers and tofu to make a serving for one.

  • Saute onions and peppers first, then add your crumbled tofu + spices. You can use any spices to your liking.

Have a lovely Sunday. ;)

Ps. I’m excited about our first ”Sons of Pitches” softball team practice & meeting today.  I’ve yet to buy a glove, so I may need to look into that asap.
