Easy Roasted Salmon Recipe

Easy Salmon Dinner

    This is my favorite way to cook salmon.  Each summer we go home to Idaho and bring home around 200lbs of wild salmon for our freezer (check out a video of me catching a huge chinook salmon here), so as a result we cook salmon 1-2 times a week.  This is such an easy recipe but has so much flavor. Ingredients: -six 4oz (appx) salmon filets (or one giant filet as shown here) -2 lemons, ...[Read More]

Sample Meal Plan Example 4 – Low Carb

Low Carb Sample Meal Plan

Here is what I did yesterday for a lower carb day. I have my husband's work holiday part on Friday so I am watching my carbs this week. I'm not counting calories and I'm not doing it as strictly as when I was doing Jamie Eason's 12 week trainer, I am just doing a few carbs with Meal 1, carbs pre and post workout and then veggie carbs the rest of the day. Because my carbs are lower I am increasing ...[Read More]

Easy Crockpot Salsa Chicken

I had an event Saturday and Sunday this weekend and so I didn't have much extra time to prep my meals for the week. This is a problem, because I am out of my "bulk" food that I usually cook on the weekends and eat throughout the week. So, before I head to bed I just threw one big package of boneless, skinless chicken breasts (I bought a big 5-lb package earlier in the week so it was already in my ...[Read More]

Ingredients: Wrap Ingredients (makes about 5 servings): -2lb chicken breast -1 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce -1/3 cup low-sodium chicken broth -Yellow curry powder (probably about 3 Tbsp o ...[Read More]

Pumpkin Pie Cottage Cheese

"Pumpkin Pie" Cottage Cheese I will eat this sometimes for my last meal of the day instead of frozen egg whites. I mix one serving of 1% or 2% cottage cheese (I like Lactaid brand because it is easier on my stomach but it can be hard to find) with one spoonful of raw pumpkin (make sure the canned raw pumpkin you buy doesn't have sugar added to it). *NOTE* most fat free cottage cheeses have sugar a ...[Read More]
