Today I wanted to share this recipe that has become a staple in my diet over the past few months.
It’s a great way to get some seafood into your diet to ensure you’re getting your omega 3’s, it’s relatively inexpensive to make, and you don’t need any fancy equipment.
Aside from these there are three main reasons why I love this recipe. Aside from it’s nutrient density and delicious taste which of course are my top two priorities when it comes to food preparation and they are:
- It can be made in less than 30 minutes.
- It doesn’t require any cooking.
- It travels well.
So without further delay lets get to it.
Makes 2 Meal Sized Servings
2 cans of Salmon – I used Wild Pacific Pink but you can use whatever kind you like though I do recommend you opt for Wild rather than farmed.
2 ripe avocados – cut in half, and score into cubes
1 small to medium red onion – chopped or minced
1 handful of fresh dill – washed, dried and chopped fine
1 organic lemon – juiced
3 stalks of organic celery – chopped
2 organic carrots – peeled and shredded
2 tbsp organic olive oil
1 tsp Celtic sea salt
1/2 – 1 tsp organic turmeric (I love this stuff and tend to go heavier because I want my food to be super anti-inflammatory)
1 pinch of powdered kelp or dulse flakes – great source of the all important iodine
Organic black pepper and cayenne pepper to taste
Combine all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl and mash together with a large fork until well combined.
This recipe is high in healthy fats, quality protein, vitamins and minerals all without any added sugars or starch and thus it fits perfectly into any low carb high fat Paleo or Bulletproof way of eating.
My current experiment (more details to come) with very low-carb eating and cold adaptation has been going quite well and this served as a perfect meal for me this morning.
I will say that I ate half of it with about 8 Mary’s organic crackers for some crunch and followed that with some celery and Rainforest Nut Butter (I’m in love with the stuff and often find myself snacking on it after meals, hopefully it’s not some sort of mold toxin craving because there are cashews in it but whatever, sometimes you just gotta live a little.)
So there you have it, an easy, delicious way to get yourself nourished with high quality nutrition without having to invest a ton of time or money.
No more excuses for not planning ahead and eating clean.
If you don’t make the time to nourish yourself now then you’re making the time to be sick and weak (a.k.a. average) later and that is not a wise decision for any of us.
Know thyself, love thyself, heal thyself.
