It was over 100 degrees in Raleigh this weekend and the last thing I want to do is eat a heavy meal while in a constant state of sweat. I personally love the heat, but I’m sure not everyone shares the same opinion.
We decided to cook light.
Stove-top salmon with Himalayan salt, pepper, lemon juice in coconut oil over
- mixed greens
- balsamic vinegar and olive oil
It was just enough to feel full and refreshed.
Salmon is loaded with protein and potassium. The fat that is in fish is beneficial to your heart and aids in keeping you full and satisfied. This piece has approximately 29 grams of protein and 542 mg of potassium. (1/3 pound of salmon)
Balsamic vinegar/olive oil is a great substitute for your typical salad dressing that is loaded with sodium, fat and SUGAR.
If you need some carbohydrates, cold quinoa could be a great element to add to a salad like this!
