Green tea is sometimes considered to be the healthiest beverage ever, since it’s filled with flavonoids and catechins, which act as powerful antioxidants to defend the body from free radical damage.
In other words, brewing a cup every day is a great plan.
But if that’s not exactly your cup of tea (ha!), you can also use it in a marinade, like we do here. It’s delicious combined with ginger, honey, and fig vinegar (if you can’t find fig, sub in another sweet vinegar).
The resulting fish is bursting with flavor and turns into a full, nutritious meal when served with the spinach-lentil salad.
WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE
We usually like recipes with very few ingredients for ease of cooking. This one has many ingredients, but they’re all so nutritious, we don’t even mind. Green tea, ginger, lemon, and honey are all filled with micronutrients, while lentils provide protein and fiber. Fish is obviously a great source of protein and omega-3s, and spinach is one of the most nutrient-dense greens you can put on your plate. Your body is going to be sending you thank you notes after this meal.
