Baked Red Snapper filled with Pesto Cherry Tomatoes

LOVE is a choice.

While we celebrate life and recognize that we always have choices, I hope that we all choose love not only for others but also for ourselves. Nurturing our bodies and our souls with the best and freshest ingredients is a choice we make each and every day. I invite you to explore new ingredients that you may not have tried yet because of fear you may not like them or they will not work together. Try this baked white fish filet with a side of pesto cherry tomatoes (pesto sauce @flaviashealthykitchen) and guacamole @flaviashealthykitchen.
