Happy Monday everyone!
I hope you had a great and fun weekend! Now that you’re back to your work week, here is a very easy, delicious recipe to help you kick off a healthy week in 5 minutes. I originally saw this recipe in Olive Magazine, a foodie mag in the UK. I made a few tweaks to it to make it a little healthier, like cooking it in grape seed oil, but the rest of the idea came from Jamie Oliver, a conscientious chef across the pond.
Monday’s can be a difficult day to get back on track with your health goals, but with this recipe you can get back to your healthy routine in just minutes. All you need is a piece of salmon, some sesame seeds, Himalaya salt and olive oil.
If you’re too tired to make anything else, have the salmon with a simple salad of leafy greens. If you have the time and are inclined to make a more robust meal, then I suggest you pair this dish with the Sesame Cucumber Salad or the Spring Quinoa Salad, both of which are on this site. If you are looking for low-carb options then check out the cucumber salad. If you prefer some grains with dinner, then the quinoa salad is the way to go. Both are delicious and would go very well with the salmon.
Not only is this dish delicious but it is amazing for your health. Salmon is loaded in Omega 3 essential fatty acids that help with circulation, have anti-inflammatory properties and also can help modulate mood and improve focus and concentration! All very important benefits~
I hope you enjoy today’s recipe and do let me know what you think once you’ve tried it. I think you’re going to love it!
Have a happy and healthy week!
