Made myself a real dinner for the first time in weeks tonight! Salmon burger wrapped in chard leaves and dressed up with hummus and a cucumber/cabbage/dill/yogurt/sunflower seed slaw. Cast iron baby potatoes cooked in #ghee
with alllll the crispy bits. And some rainbow carrots steamed and smothered in #grassfedbutter
. I think I've covered my #healthyfats
for the day!
It's simple but it's also hard, at first anyway. Then you get into a routine, a habit, and it becomes part of your life. Eating well. It doesn't have to be perfect all the time, but it does have to be a habit. And the reason I post about it so much is because I feel so good. I want other people to feel good too.
I've heard people say before that it doesn't matter how they eat because healthy people get cancer all the time too. Well, it's true, we can't predict exactly what is going to happen even if we make all the "right" choices. But I can tell you I'm in fighting shape. I'm in surviving shape. I'm in thriving shape. I feel like I have little to no inflammation in my body, I recover quickly, and I feel better in many ways than I did when I was younger. I've always liked "whole" foods, before they were called "whole," but in the last bit I've been able to dial in on what I really need. I'm not a nutritionist, but I can say it's worth it. If I can do it, so can you.

Fideua de Mariscos. The Columbia Restaurant was the first Spanish Restaurant in the US starting in 1905. It is rich in its food and culture, and Spanish architecture. And also the prettiest textiles I’ve ever seen.

ONE WEEK LEFT until the end of the internship! cannot believe I only have a few days left as an mgh Di...ready for the next step in my career as a soon to be RD but extremely sad to not be seeing my favorite people every day at mans greatest hospital (shoutout to mgh di gals💗). Now time to think about post internship life🙃 buuuut first enjoying this last week by relaxing and making some good food such as last nights dinner! .
Includes: grilled salmon with a soy honey marinade, garlic and spinach quinoa, grilled zucchini and tomato! When making a simple marinade for salmon dishes, I never measure as it’s so much easier to just mix ingredients together and taste to see what else it might need!
With the school year approaching, you may be wondering how to get #Seafood2xWk
into your kids' diets for its health and brain development benefits. SNP Ambassador @SchoolFoodRocks
knows how to make #seafood
inviting to schoolkids, and he's got some tips on how to get your kids eating seafood: .
1. Start creating meals featuring seafood early in their lives, as children who are exposed to seafood at an early age may develop a fondness for the cuisine.
2. Introduce them to mild varieties such as cod, pollock and haddock, then have them try other species as they become accustomed to the taste.
3. Seafood can be substituted in nearly any dish that normally calls for chicken, beef, pork or other proteins. Serving seafood in familiar dishes like tacos, enchiladas, soups, salads, burgers and baked dishes can be a beneficial way for kids to eat more seafood.
4. Canned seafoods like tuna and salmon make for quick, budget-friendly options when time is short, plus they can be mixed in with a variety of recipe

My little guy loves his "healthy milkshakes." Did you know that the average American only gets 15:1 ratio of omega 6s to omega 3s, with many getting 30:1😣 In May I attended a CEU on medicinal foods and this statistic had my jaw drop. This is the standard American diet. We forget about our nuts and seeds and then wonder why we are such a sick nation. We are still working on incorporating them into our diets more but one fantastic and easy way to load up is in a smoothie or "healthy" milkshake. Throw a banana, organic milk (or almond, coconut, banana milk, etc) yogurt (can also be a dairy-free yogurt), a few ice cubes, natural vanilla flavor, organic coconut sugar or your natural, unrefined sugar of choice into a blender with chia seeds and flax meal or nuts of choice, then whatever other powerhouse foods you can throw in (cacao nibs, maca powder, organic protein powder, MCT oil, collagen peptides, etc) Voila! A healthy and delicious, refined-sugar-free snack or meal packed with those essential omega 3s. You can also easily throw some flax or chia seeds on your peanut or almond butter and incorporate them into batter like pancakes or baked goods. #healthyliving #naturalliving #omega3s #wellness #prevention #crunchy #knowbetterdobetter #lifestylechoices
At the "cantine" (cafeteria) my bébés ate 7-course, hot, whole-food, well-rounded lunches. 🙌 As a course of habit, and preference, I choose to send hot, gluten-free lunches to school with the bébés everyday. Having a healthy, balanced lunch is very important for growing minds and is most definitely a high priority of mine.
So, presently, I am in the midst of some major back-to-school meal planning! To make things easier for me in the mornings, their lunches are oftentimes simple variations of leftovers.
Exhibit A: Brain boosting, veggie-filled, protein packed, gluten- & grain-free salmon patties 💪 (or as my bébés refer to them, salmon nuggets.)
Salmon - 275g (cooked, ideally from the previous night's dinner)
Almond flour - 35g
Ground flaxseeds - 1 tb
Eggs - 2
Mayonnaise - 1/8 cup
1 small zucchini, finely chopped and sautéed with
2-4 garlic cloves, also finely chopped
A good amount of ghee or avocado oil
Sauté zucchini and garlic in avocado oil or ghee in a large frying pan. Flake the salmon in a bowl along with the almond flour & flaxseeds. Add the eggs, mayonnaise and salt and pepper, to taste (don't forget, you probably added salt to your salmon the night before!) After the zucchini and the garlic are lightly sautéed, add to salmon mixture and mix. Scoop rounded tablespoons out, shape and fry in a thin layer of ghee or avocado oil.
(Unfortunately, at this time, I cannot tell you how many this recipe yielded. Sneaky hands got to them before I could count. 😋)

😍 Another amazing breakfast!!!
🤰🏻 My first trimester was filled with nausea & not my best eating habits, but I’ve been making up for it in my second trimester!
🍳 Local, farm fresh, organic eggs topped with Everything But the Bagel seasoning on a @sietefoods
🍅 Organic heirloom tomato topped with hemp seeds for omegas & antioxidants.
🥑 Avocado for healthy fat! Besides, what’s an egg wrap without avocado?
One of the easiest. Because Wednesdays are hard (like.. I already ate the meals I planned for the week and is it the weekend yet? 🍷 ).
Fish is one of the fastest and healthiest meals I always turn to in moments of weeknight dinner panic. ✨ This pistachio crusted cod hardly needs a recipe. While cod is baking make a simple side // like quinoa, a salad, or stir-fry some veg - whatever also takes only 15 minutes (no more) because that’s the kind of situation we’re talking about here. And 💥dinner!
Here’s how to make it (serves 2):
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Mix together 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard and 2 teaspoons honey in a small bowl. Take 2 (6-oz) fillets and arrange evenly in a baking dish. Brush the fish with the honey-mustard mixture. Coarsely chop 1/4 cup pistachios and sprinkle over the cod, pushing it down a bit so it sticks. Bake cod for 12-14 minutes until opaque. Enjoy!
Some of the main benefits of flaxseed.
Omega-3 essential fatty acids, which are good fats that have been shown to be heart-healthy. Each tablespoon of ground flaxseed contains about 1.8 grams of plant omega-3s.
Lignans, which have antioxidant qualities. Flaxseed contains 75 to 800 times more lignans than other plant foods.
Fiber. Flaxseed contains both the soluble and insoluble types.
Also, preliminary studies show that it may help fight heart disease, diabetes and breast cancer. Just don't forget to grind it up as our stomach's can't dissolve the outer shell and you would be missing out on the good stuff! Like & follow please 😎
Protein, fat, carbs, greens, fermented food, mineral-rich salt...all of the goodness is here:
Arugula & spinach
Homemade red wine vinaigrette with @redmondrealsalt
Aaand....a side of potato chips. 😉
Something about crispy salmon makes me so happy, probably the fact that it's super yummy and super good for you! Salmon is loaded with proteins, healthy fats (omega 3s), vitamin B, potassium, and the list goes on🙌🏼Try adding salmon to your meal plan this week. Here's what you need to do:
-pull out tin foil to fit desired baking dish/sheet
-preheat oven (and baking dish/sheet without the foil) to 375 -rinse salmon and pat dry -add avocado oil to tinfoil and lay salmon on top
-top salmon with s&p (I like lemon pepper)
-pull out the heated baking dish and carefully lay tinfoil with salmon on top (hear that sizzle start🔥)
-bake for 15 mins and broil an extra 3!! Then enjoy 🤗Had a super fun day with my mom and then we have dinner later tonight with tommy and my parents. Happy to be home for a short visit to spend with my family Happy Wednesday! #elizasbites

🐟 Omega3 🐠
☝️ That was my last meal😋
☝️ Ghee pan fried salmon
☝️ Salmon is very good source of omega3 fatty acids
☝️ Omega3 is very good for heart health, lowers blood pressure, improves hair growth, gut health, joint pain relief and much more.
☝️ Definitely add seafoods to ur diet for getting the omega3 s' required for proper functioning of the body
☝️ The only downside i would say is that these fatty fishes like salmon are very costly. Health comes at an expense 😄
Do u know any cheaper but good quality fish alternatives ⁉️
