Quick and Easy Salmon Recipe

When I started learning to cook I struggled with fish and chicken. In all honesty, I still struggle sometimes. But not with this recipe. This recipe is super simple and can easily be altered to suit your needs or tastes…except for the salmon part of course. The major benefit of eating salmon is that it is one of the best sources for Omega-3 (EPA and DHA) that our body so desperately wants and needs. I personally choose to buy wild salmon over farmed. Science has demonstrated that wild salmon has higher natural levels of Omega-3 plus, farmed salmon can contain toxins. Omega-3 is a nutrient we need to consume through our diet because our body cannot create it. The benefits to Omega-3 are good healthy brain function, decreasing inflammation, lowering blood pressure, improving arterial cells, and even reducing the risk of cancer. Eating salmon allows your body to receive/metabolize the nutrients in a natural state with all the other benefits/components (protein, vitamins and minerals) of the food rather than taking a supplement. In addition to all the above, I consider salmon the “happy fish.” This and other fatty fish have been known to help reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression. Read the full article…

Snacking on Superfoods to Stay Healthy During the Day

Snacking. It happens to the best of us. No matter how hard you want to stick with your healthy diet, sometimes you need to eat something outside of your normal meal time. Maybe you haven’t been able to leave your desk at work to grab a healthy lunch, or a family illness is adding stress to your life, making it oh-so-tempting to hit the nearest snack machine and go to town. Before you toss back a handful of greasy chips or dig into that stale donut from the break room, consider that snacking can be healthy and even delicious! Here’s how to embrace snacking and why you should learn all about superfoods and the amazing benefits of consuming them. To Snack or Not to Snack For many of us, snacking feels illicit, like you’re cheating on your future meals. Too often, snacking is something done on impulse and involves shoving empty calories into your mouth that might momentarily sooth your hunger (and maybe your soul), but will ultimately inflate your waistline and harm your health. However, snacking doesn’t have to be bad. In fact, adding healthy, pre-planned snacks into your daily meal plan can actually help you feel more satiated Read the full article…

At Home Buddha Bowls

This post is for all of you health conscious individuals with crazy busy schedules, and no time for cooking, who are in need of nutritious and delicious on-the-go options. All you need is about an hour on Sunday to put some effort into chopping up fruits and vegetables and getting a little creative. Inspired by buddha bowls from the farmers market, I figured why can’t we do this from home?! Please, put your own spin on it and let me know how it goes! Lunch:  Okay, Trader Joe’s may be your new best friend here. Buy a couple bags of riced cauliflower. If you prefer, you can steam or cook the cauliflower however you would like. Personally, the less work for me, the better. I simply pour in about a cup of riced cauliflower uncooked (I usually microwave this later when eating anyway). Second chop up some lettuce and throw that on top. Toss in a cooked and chopped sweet potato, shredded chicken, chopped cherry tomatoes, and pecans. Later I add sliced avocado and Trader Joe’s Green Goddess Salad Dressing (amazinggggg and made with all fresh ingredients). Pro tip: if you heat the bowl before eating, remove the lettuce and add Read the full article…
