White fish is a great option while trying to lose weight. It is low in calories, low in fat and high on protein, which is essential to maintain muscle health.

1 zucchini, sliced
1 leek, sliced
250g mushrooms, sliced
2 tbsp chicken broth
1tbsp coconut oil
1 lime, juiced
salt & pepper to taste

Sautée the vegetables in coconut oil until soft, season with salt and pepper and add the juice of one lime. Place vegetable mixture in oven proof dish, making a bed for the fish. Lay 3 frozen cod loins on the vegetables and season with salt and pepper. Add two tablespoons of chicken broth to the baking dish, cover with aluminium foil and bake @400F for 40 minutes. (if the loins are thawed, it only takes 20 minutes)Makes 3 servings of 1 protein & 1 vegetable
