Citrus Salmon

Grilled Citrus SalmonSalmon is one of my very favorite proteins and is a great alternative when I am sick of chicken. I know that a lot of people shy away from cooking fish. I am here to tell you that it is SO simple! I buy frozen salmon fillets from Costco. They are individually wrapped, skinless, and the perfect portion! If you don’t have a Costco Membership, don’t worry! I’ve found them at most other stores, too. I’ve also tried tilapia, if you want a cheaper option. 

Here is the simplest of recipes. Let me know what you think!

Strawberries & Cream

 

wordswag_1462586774049So, I had a MAJOR sweet tooth 10 minutes ago. I blended up a bunch of frozen strawberries and bananas and added in vanilla Shakeo, which I previously mixed with a small amount of almond milk, Chia seeds, and a bit of honey. It was actually the consistency of froyo! Oh, and my husband ate some, too! ?
