My healthy easy tilapia recipe


I have been trying really hard to eat healthy since my relocation to the U.S. Everyone thinks I would eventually add weight, thanks to the high level of processed foods and fat. But eating healthy here is very possible, you just have to be determined and plan your meals. It requires putting some thought into what you eat. Anyways, I have been eating healthy and exercising. This is one of my fast and easy healthy food mostly eaten for supper.

Ingredients
Tilapia fillet
Pineapples cut into small wedges
A teaspoon of butter
Garlic powder
Seasoning salt
Powdered pepper
Grounded crayfish
Onion powder
Frozen mixed vegetables ( broccoli, carrots, peas, green beans, cauliflower, sweetcorn)
Diced bell pepper
Diced onions (optional)

Directions
Pre-heat the oven to 475 degrees F
Marinate the tilapia fish with the above listed spices in a bowl for 5 minutes
Put a teaspoon of oil or non-stick cooking spray into a oven dish or an aluminum foil bowl
Transfer the fish into an oven dish or aluminum foil bowl
Put the half teaspoon of the butter on each side of the fish
Place the pineapple wedge on the butter ( A good substitute is lemon)
Add the mixed vegetables and bell peppers to the bowl, let it surround the fish
Add some salt and pepper to the mixed vegetables
Cover the bowl with aluminum foil to ensure the food cooks evenly and stays moist
Put it in the oven for 25 minutes, flip the fish over after the first 15 minutes.
Serve hot with a glass of cold water or freshly squeezed orange juice.

This meal can be easily cooked within 30 minutes ( 5 minutes to prep, 25 minutes for cook time), it is very filling. It can be made for family, spouse and or individual consumption. Eating healthy is very important to living a very long and disease free life. I really like the taste of pineapple with fish, I hope you like it too.

Tip: You can put it in the microwave for 2 minutes after cooking if you want it to be crisp.

Men are Scum: The godly man guide to not being a scum

Men are Scum: The godly man guide to not being a scum
Last week, I watched Larry Charles' dangerous world of comedy on Netflix and the third episode focused on sexism.  It turns out that Nigeria's comedy industry thrives on sexists jokes that objectify women, normalise rape and encourage the exploitation of women. It was one of the most disgusting things I have ever watched. It's interesting that many think rape is a thing to joke about and the audience laughs at those vile jokes that involve victim blaming. Sexism is broadly seen in our society from the blue collar workers to the board room bosses, from Nollywood movies to product commercials. It is so deeply embedded in our subconscious that we don’t intend to hurt women with our words or actions, it is just a thing of a "normal thing". The truth is I am not trying to vilify anyone. The average man was dealt sexism as a part of being in this present day society. The good thing is you can unlearn all of these thin…

Have faith, you will make it

Faith it till you make it
"Fake it till you make" was my go-to word and action while I was doing my post-graduate studies. For those that don't know what this means it is simply the act of imitating confidence, competence, and an optimistic mindset until you achieve your goals even when everything is not going your way. Basically, you may be discouraged on the inside about a situation but you act as though you are positive about it on the outside. For science lovers, this act is actually based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). But since we are Christians, I decided to title it faith it till you make it because I realize that faking it keeps us limited at our own abilities. But when you “faith it”, you will assuredly make it!
Mark 11:23-23 (TLB) In reply Jesus said to the disciples, “If you only have faith in God—this is the absolute truth—you can say to this Mount of Olives, ‘Rise up and fall into the Mediterranean,’ and your command will be obeyed. All that’s requi…

Story Time: How I got my battle scars (Part 1)

Story Time: How I got my battle scars Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog. I know many of you that have seen me in real life or have seen my pictures have questions about my scars. I'd have questions too if I was in your shoes. To note, putting myself out there like this is new to me but I believe my story will bless and inspire someone. It is a story of victory, deliverance, overcoming tragedy and experiencing God’s intentional love. 


Romans 8:28 (TPT) So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together to fit into God's perfect plan of bringing good into our lives, for we are his lovers who have been called to fulfil his designed purpose.
