An outdoor company offers timely tips for taking care of your inner self

EDITOR'S NOTE: Cotopaxi sells outdoor products and "funds solutions that address the most persistent needs of those living in extreme poverty," according to its Web site. Noting that May is International Mediterranean Diet Month, the company also has prepared a graphic with tips on healthy living and eating.
I've supplemented that advice with a simple recipe that includes three major components of the Mediterranean Diet -- seafood, vegetables and olive oil.

HEART HEALTHY: Fresh wild Atlantic Cod with Spinach, Organic Diced Tomatoes and Pitted Olives takes about 15 minutes to cook in a preheated 400-degree oven.

HOW TO ASSEMBLE: Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Meanwhile, place a half-pound of fresh spinach in a large pan lined with aluminum foil or parchment paper, drizzle with plenty of extra-virgin olive oil, add up to 2 pounds of cut-up pieces of cod fillet seasoned with a little sea salt, spoon on organic diced tomatoes from a can, add reduced-fat shredded cheese and then squeeze fresh juice from a lemon or lime over everything.

SHRIMP WORKS, TOO: We used the same simple recipe with 2 pounds of wild-caught shrimp, which we shelled and deveined.

FRESH TOMATOES: This time, we used fresh tomatoes, and the shrimp were ready in 10 minutes when we preheated the oven to 400 degrees.
