When diet is wrong, medicine is of no use. When diet is correct, medicine is of no need. – Ayurvedic Proverb
Eating healthy has changed my life in so many ways. I have got more energy, a clearer mind, a stronger body, and a better mood. There’s this notion that having a healthy, nourishing diet is boring, not fun, stressful, and on it goes. So many excuses to continue doing what we are used to and hoping to get different results. I get it! It’s challenging and confusing at the beginning. It’s like learning a new language. And – It’s totally worth it! I promise.
Just wanted to share a healthy, easy to make, yummy salmon bowl recipe with you today. When it comes to fish always make sure that it comes from a good, clean source. Salmon needs to be wild-caught. For the other ingredients choose organic whenever possible. You don’t want to burden yourself with unnecessary toxins.
Cook the Salmon:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees and line baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper.
Place salmon filet skin side-down on baking sheet. Drizzle with 1tsp. olive oil and sprinkle with ¼ tsp. salt, then roast in oven, 10 to 12 minutes.
Make the Cauliflower Rice:
De-stem cauliflower and break into florets, discarding as much stem as possible. Pulse in food processor until it resembles small grains of rice. Set aside.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet and add onions. Cook on high for 2 minutes, then turn heat down to low and cook, stirring occasionally, until caramelized, about 10 minutes. Add mushrooms and garlic and cook 2 minutes, then add cauliflower, cumin, allspice, cinnamon, ¼ tsp. salt, and pepper. Cook 2 minutes. Turn off heat and stir in baby spinach (The residual heat will wilt the spinach).
Assemble the Bowl:
Remove from skillet, stir in lemon zest, dill, mint, and parsley and transfer to a small bowl. Top with salmon to serve
Good to know:
This dish is packed with tryptophan, omega3 essential fatty acids, and healthy proteins (salmon) as well as health promoting spices such as garlic and cinnamons. Cauliflower is an excellent source for potassium, magnesium, B vitamins and magnesium. Balanced food for balanced mood!
Do good for yourself and enjoy!
