Fish Tacos + 100 Days of Real Food cookbook giveaway from weelicious.comPin

Real food. Real. Food. I’m talking about the kind that doesn’t come from a can, jar or box, but straight from the earth to your table. When we eat this way — wholesome foods that have been organically grown, humanely raised and not processed or made with tons of ingredients we can’t pronounce, it leads to a happier and healthier life where we naturally feel better inside and out. It’s a lifestyle my family and I live by and I’ve made it a focus behind everything I create for Weelicious, but my friend Lisa Leake, her husband Jason and their two girls took it one step further. Lisa and her family realized they weren’t eating as healthy as they had believed and completely cut out all processed food for 100 days to see if they could pull it off. Not only were they able to do it, they turned it into a lifestyle and a massively popular and trusted brand that spawned a website and #1 New York Times Bestselling book. You might think what Lisa and her family did was easy, but when you look closely at the food we eat and what food companies would have us believe is good for us, you would quickly realize that it’s trickier than you might think. Lisa’s first book, based on the title of her wildly popular website, 100 Days of Real Food, explored how to be the best whole food eater you can be while still enjoying many of your favorite recipes cooking with the freshest food possible.

In Lisa’s latest cookbook, 100 Days of Real Food Fast and Fabulous: The Easy and Delicious Way to Cut Out Processed Food, she goes even deeper into making the quickest, easiest recipes possible. Applesauce Oatmeal Pancakes? Yum! Honeydew Green Smoothie? Hello, perfect breakfast! Chocolate Banana Pops? An instant kid favorite! Not only are Lisa’s recipes simple to prepare, but her cookbook focuses on how to get processed food out of your diet and learn to love the foods our bodies are naturally craving. Lisa shares all of her supermarket staples and secrets and unravels the mystery behind so many of those boxed and packaged foods we believe are good for us when they’re really not. The book will enlighten you and help you create easy to follow menu plans, shopping lists and features tons of creative and delicious recipes to inspire the whole family to cook together.

I loved so many recipes from the book that I was torn about which one to share here, but I have to say these Easy Fish Tacos with Pico de Gallo were SO up my family’s alley. The fish is seasoned with cumin and a touch of chile powder to give each nugget tons of flavor and gets nice and golden on the outside. It’s then served inside warm tortillas topped with tons of fresh salsa. I even made a vegetarian version as well for Kenya using firm tofu instead of the fish and he ate 3 of them!

Prep Time 15 minutes

Total Time 30 minutes


  • greek yogurt
  • 1 medium tomato, seeded and diced
  • 1/2 cup diced white onion
  • 1/2 serrano or jalapeno, seeded and minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 pound white fish (cod, rockfish, tilapia), cut into 1 inch chunks
  • 2-3 tablespoons butter or olive oil
  • 1 lime, halved
  • whole grain corn or flour tortillas, for serving


  • Make the pico de gallo: In a medium bowl, toss together all the ingredients.
  • Prepare the fish: Mix the flour and seasonings on a plate. Dip the fish chunks into the flour to coat on all sides. Transfer to a clean plate.
  • In a large sauté pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the fish and cook until the fish is a golden brown on the bottom, 3 to 4 minutes (depending on the thickness of the fish). Flip and cook until it is golden brown on the other side and the center is white, flaky, and cooked all the way through, 7 to 8 minutes total (depending on the thickness). Add more butter to the pan if necessary to keep it from drying out. Squeeze the lime on top.
  • Serve the fish with warm tortillas and freshly made pico de gallo.

About the Author

Catherine is a mama of three. A Kentucky girl living in California. Here’s what I know: all kids can be great eaters and mealtime must be easy. I create simple, healthy recipes the whole family will love.


  1. This fish taco recipe looks yummy! I’ll have to coerce my husband (a gifted man in the kitchen) to make this for us! 🙂

  2. Fresh crunchy fish, creamy avocado, fresh produce, whole wheat, maybe some baby kale, quinoa or even sweet potato… what’s not to love from the whole family?!

  3. Can’t wait to try this recipe. Fish tacos are my favorite and I am an East coast girl that has been on the hunt for a recipe like the one I had experienced at a stand in CA many many years ago!

  4. I love taco’s and burritos because there are so many different ways to make them. My son loves your pulled pork burritos with black beans and rice. My daughter is my cheese girl so any and all different cheeses make her a happy taco girl. Husband will eat anything on a tortilla. And I must have sour cream mixed with a little liquid from our salsa. Would this recipe work with chicken in place of fish?

  5. I don’t know where you’re having your info, but great topic. I must spend some time learning more or understanding more. Thanks for great info I used to be in search of this info for my mission.

  6. Would love to feed my family as healthy as possible. Thanks for give away and sharing info about book.

  7. A taco doesn’t need anything beyond a good pico de gallo but a small slice of grilled pineapple is fabulous addition.

  9. I would love to add this book to my recipe collection! I try hard to serve real, whole food but sometimes it’s tough.

  10. Gotta have some homemade guacamole on my tacos, or fresh avocado chunks, depending on the style of taco. Yum!

  11. The Fish Tacos with Pico de Gallo isn’t gluten free, as claimed. One of the ingredients is whole wheat flour.

  13. I’ve been trying to get my family to eat more whole foods and less processed foods. This would be wonderful.

  14. Fresh garden cilantro with finely chopped red onion, pineapple, cucumber, tomato, peach salsa. Squeeze with a lime. Fresh and light and sweet and tangy with fish!

  15. All her recipes are amazing! We live just outside of Charlotte and are very proud we have such an awesome author and blogger among us!

  16. As a busy family of 5 we are always looking for ways to eat healthier and instill healthy eating habits in our kids! Looking forward to checking it out!

  17. Planning to try this recipe tonight! Surprised how easy to make small changes and leave behind prepackaged processed foods. Thanks!

  18. Homegrown tomatoes made into salsa! But really it is hard to pick just one favorite out of salsa, avocado, sour cream, and cheese.

  23. For my son is would be lettuce and onions and my daughter lettuce and tomatoes. I actually like them plain.

  24. Would have to say cheese. Homemade because my little ones can’t have dairy. Also, my son always wants onions and lettuce and my daughter lettuce and tomatoes.

  25. Yum! This recipe sounds absolutely delicious! 🙂 I am a SAHM of three so I am always looking for new and amazing cookbooks so that I can continue to cook new and exciting healthy meals for my family.
