10 Delicious and Healthy Salmon Recipes

The Salmon

Good health is never something we should never forsake. There is this old saying that I made up totally on my own after paraphrasing from many, many others; good health won’t kill you. So, you know, let’s embrace the good health. It’s good for us. Not only does eating well and exercising regularly make us feel better, it does wonders for our bodies. It provides us with more energy. It helps us to feel better about ourselves. It helps us to look good. When we look good, we feel good. When we feel good, we are good. Happiness and confidence are very in tune with one another, and both are very reliant on our health.

Perhaps you’re not in tune with your body quite the way that you should be. For example, when we are out and about, such as on a weekend when we take our kids to Disney, and meals are rushed, I don’t feel well. For example, a rushed croissant and coffee at Starbucks for breakfast followed by a burger and fries in the park for lunch followed by a quick stop through a drive-thru on the way home; I feel a bit sick to my stomach. My body knows when I need fruit, veggies and other good stuff in it, and it doesn’t operate well without those things. That’s why I like to make sure our dinners are as healthy as possible, and salmon makes frequent appearances on our dinner menu. It’s good for us, it’s light and it’s amazing. I never feel deprived eating a healthy diet because everything we eat is so good for us. With that in mind, I’ve decided to share some of my personal favorite salmon recipes with you so that you, too, can enjoy the fruits of your labor and good health.
