This post is for all my foodies out there. So as you may know, I’ve been on a healthy eating craze since July and I’ve lost more than 15 lbs (yay) and I couldn’t be more thrilled. If you are in a health rut when it comes to eating healthy and your weight, you may wanna check out my Healthy Life Hacks video here for some motivation.
Okay so on to the food now!
I LOVE salmon and it’s an amazing food with so many health benefits. It’s really the only fish that I eat as well so I bake/grill it so many different ways because it’ll be so boring otherwise right?
Today I decided to bake salmon with baby bella mushrooms and tomatoes with pomegranate folded into greek yogurt. It’s a super easy dish to make and you’ll freak out at how goodddd it is.
Before, I would put the salmon in a glass baking dish with olive oil but I stopped that since salmon already has it’s own natural oils so I felt like that oil on oil scene just wasn’t cutting it. The change is actually very noticeable- there’s obviously less oiliness and the salmon actually tastes drop dead delicious.
Ingredients [just a few easy yummies]
– baby bella mushrooms [sliced]
– tomatoes [sliced]
– salmon fillets
– parsley flakes
– non fat greek yogurt
– pomegranate seeds
Pre-heat the oven at 350 before you begin prepping your ingredients. Trust me, I never did this before and then the one time I did it was totally amazed how quickly things get baked. There was no going back since then so yes. Moral of the story: pre-heat the oven.
In a glass baking dish, place salmon fillets and then place sliced tomatoes and mushrooms on them. Sprinkle parsley flakes and then bake for 30 minutes or until the fish flakes easily. See- told ya it was super easy.
For the dip now, just de-seed [is that even a word?] your pomegranate and then fold it into your greek yogurt. I used like 1/4 cup yogurt to 1 pomegranate so definitely use more pomegranate accordingly.
Can. We. Even. Talk. about the pomegranate? There’s the most amazing pop of flavour in your mouth when you crunch them on your salmon. It’s oh so good you NEED to try it!
Do you have any recipe suggestions that I should try? Lemme know!
