    P3tolife Program Testimonial

    I used your recipes from P3 faithfully for about five months and now more recently – more sporadically. I absolutely found them very delicious, plus even lost 6 lbs using them faithfully. I appreciate all of your hard work, and the biggest limitation I have is time – and the planning it takes — as I own a business and am married and spend a lot of time with grandchildren on my days off!!

    Thank you and my favorites are the mug breads, the smoothies, the lemon garlicky chicken, turkey chili, salmon, and Brussel sprouts and I absolutely love the flax seed green beans!!! You have been an inspiration to many and so helpful to me personally. Thank you!

    Zesty Lemon Fish

    • 10 oz tilapia filets
    • 2 tsp butter
    • 2 tbsp lemon juice
    • 1 tsp lemon zest
    • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
    • 1/2 tsp onion powder
    • 1/2 tsp dried parsley
    • 1/2 tsp salt
    • 1/2 tsp pepper
    • fresh dill for garnish

    Braised Celery

    • 1 tbsp ghee
    • 1 cup yellow onion thinly sliced
    • 2 oz pancetta , diced
    • 2 tsp garlic , minced
    • 5 cups celery , sliced on a diagonal into 1" pieces
    • 1 cup crushed tomatoes
    • 1/2 tsp salt
    • 1/2 tsp pepper
    • 1/2 tsp smoked parpika


    • PREHEAT oven to 375°F. Place each tilapia filet on a large square of foil. Drizzle each filet with 1 tbsp lemon juice, then evenly sprinkle the spices and lemon zest over the fish. Top each filet with 1 tsp of butter and wrap the foil tightly around the fish. Place the foil pouches on a baking sheet.
    • HEAT the ghee in a large skillet and sauté the onion and pancetta for 3-4 minutes, until the onion softens and the pancetta begins to crisp. Add the garlic and continue sautéing for another minute. Add the celery and crushed tomatoes to the pan. Season with the salt, pepper, and smoked paprika. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
    • WHILE the celery simmers, place the fish in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. After the celery has simmered for 10 minutes covered, uncover, reduce heat to medium-low, and continue simmering for 8-10 minutes, until most of the liquid has cooked off.
    • REMOVE the fish from the oven and the foil. Plate and enjoy.
