This was lunch today- baked lemon ginger salmon with balsamic vinegar salad and a side of guacamole. It was freaking fantastic; just thinking about it now makes me smile, haha.
Monday to Friday lunches usually consist of a salad and sweet potato, which I enjoy very much, but I do like to switch it up on the weekends to make sure my tastebuds don’t get bored.
Salmon is packed full of Omega-3 fatty acids, which has been proven to reduce risk of coronary heart disease, and tastes great, so I try to add it into my meals on the weekends! It’s also super simple to prepare- I just marinate the salmon with the juice of a lemon, 1tbsp of grated ginger, cilantro, 3 cloves of garlic, 2tbsp of olive oil, and some salt & pepper in a Ziplock bag for an hour in the fridge then bake it in the oven at 350°F for 30 minutes and voila! Your perfectly cooked, flakey, moist, flavourful salmon is ready to eat.
If you’re in a diet rut and are looking to add something new to your meals, give salmon a try. Many people shy away from fish because they think it’s difficult to prepare and whatnot, but I promise you, it’s easier than you think! There are plenty of amazing salmon recipes out there and I urge you to try them out! Incorporating this healthy fish into your diet will provide you with a plethora of nutrition without sacrificing taste/flavour.
To anyone who actually reads this, I hope you’re having a lovely Saturday and enjoy the rest of your weekend! And go eat some salmon!!!
