That’s my dinner and it was mighty tasty!
Lemon pepper salmon with steamed spinach and black eyed peas with brown rice…you can’t say it’s NOT healthy! The wild salmon which had a deeper color, richer taste, and retained more of its juices than farmed salmon.
Why don’t people just buy wild? I know, we over-fish our seas, but if I eat one package of salmon every couple of months, it can’t be too much. If I made sure the fishermen I purchased from were practicing sustainable fishing methods, I wouldn’t be ruining the environment right?
Plus, it’s not as harmful to the environment as buying beef. I’m seriously thinking of eating beef only when I eat out…but not for home-cooked meals. It’s easier to find grass-fed well-raised beef in a restaurant than questioning my supermarket.
But anyways, it’s good to have salmon every once in a while because it would be special whenever I eat it.
As for the challenge, I’m doing well, I made pound cake for breakfast and it fills me up right away. Since it’s all rainy and dreary, I baked some cranberry walnut cookies with cinnamon and nutmeg to spice it up. They were so comforting! Now, I’m out of butter, so no more baked goods for the rest of the month.
