Burn it up..Jump start your Metabolism!!

Fire up your Metabolism with Spicy foods! Hot spicy foods contain chemical compounds that rev up your metabolism by as much as 10%- Specifically red or green chili peppers and black pepper and even ginger.  This metabolism boost obviously is temporary, but if the frequency of spicy meals is increased, the rewards will add up.
Here's a hot recipe that will start your metabolism burning for the chilly weather and upcoming holiday season!!

Spicy Holiday Fish Stew

1 c. diced tomatoes w/ green chilis 
1 c. chicken broth
1 c. water
1 chopped poblano pepper
1/4 c. diced onion
1 small red chili pepper chopped
7-8 sliced mushrooms
3 stalks cilantro
1 clove garlic
1/2 c. sliced baby carrots
5 talapia or haddock fillets
Dash of black pepper

Cook on stove top- all veggies. Bring to a rolling boil. Then simmer and add in the sliced fish. When fish flakes easily stew is done. Approximately 20 mins or so.
