Alright, I am officially on wedding diet. However, with how much I love to cook, this will have to be anything but boring. I decided to kick things off with a nice Tilapia Veracruz.

Start with some fresh tilapia filets, and marinate them with some organic italian dressing. These guys are pretty thin, so it doesn’t take long to cook.

The topping is where I varied from traditional veracruz, I decided to go a bit fresher and more summer-y. With fresh grape tomatoes, cilantro, and red onion, this is fresh and delightful. And healthy!

I paired my Tilapia Veracruz with fresh avocado and some red quinoa. And I gotta say, it was delicious. I think I can get used to this wedding diet thing…

Happy eating, lovelies!
