Low Carb Dinner Idea: Baked fish with olives, tomato and capers

This Italian inspired recipe is one of our all time favorites! It's delicious, easy to make, and best of all it's beneficial for your weight loss and healthy lifestyle.

The dish is loaded with protein and low on carbs and calories- just the way we like it. Plus you get the added benefits of omega-3 fatty acids from the fish, lycopene and other antioxidants from the tomato, and a healthy dose of Vitamin E from the olives. All this in a meal that takes just under a half hour from start to finish!
