Eat What The Nutritionist Eats Part Five

Lunch is my mediocre meal, but dinner... DINNER, I can get excited about. At least if it involves Salmon, that is. 

If you've followed along on my blog or know me personally, you know my favorite food is Salmon. You also know that I'm a new momma to a cute, sassy, spunky, 5 month old that is thriving on my breast milk alone. And unfortunately, salmon and breast feeding don't quite go together like peanut butter and jelly (mercury levels, yada, yada, yada). What I'm trying to say is, left to fate alone, I'd eat Salmon every single night. And, I used to! But, I'm only supposed to have 12 oz of salmon per week, max.

So, last week, I had it every other day to every 2 days. I flirt with danger a bit, and then I TRY to take a week off. Anyways, no one really cares about this part. I think I'm somehow trying to convince myself that this week's Costco trip is deserving of a big, juicy, slab. 

What does the nutritionist's dinner plate look like? In an absolute perfect world, I would choose this, EVERY SINGLE DAY. Any one out there following my Instagram videos? Literally, the same food every day at a different angle. I'm such a creature of habit!

Keep the salmon and sweet potato fries and swap out the vegetables occasionally. Asparagus, Kale Salad, Broccoli anything green and delicious. 

I hate to be so cliche... meat, potato, vegetable... but it's really what I like. And this is literally what my plate looked like every other day last week! 

So, what if I'm not eating the plate above? Lately, 'budda bowls' are getting a lot of attention (grain, protein, vegetable, nut, etc) and I've jumped ship! It's diverse, simple, great for leftovers and tasty! 

I've been doing a lot of Spaghetti Squash pasta lately, too. I made a super simple, yet delicious recipe last week. I'll see if I can't re-invent the recipe to share with you all! I'm falling short today so I'll leave you with this easy, yummy peanut sauce to try over spaghetti squash, pasta or in a stir fry:

  • 2 TBSP Peanut Butter
  • 2 TBSP Soy Sauce 
  • 1 TSP Sriracha 

Shake it up and throw over basically anything to make it taste like Christmas in July.

Next week is the final week of the series.... You didn't really think it ended at dinner did you? I know what you're thinking.... "Dessert? No way?". Well, sort of. Dessert in liquid form.... if you know what I mean! Check back next week or subscribe to be notified by e-mail when the post is up!

Everything on this blog is healthy, homemade and full of flavor. Search through these main dishes to find what are kitchen staples in our home! The meat dishes are tried, tested and reviewed by the tastebuds of my husband. If I had it my way, we'd just eat Salmon every night but that doesn't fly with the carnivore. You can really thank my husband for the wide variety of options from Main Courses. Without him, you'd be stuck with vegetarian meal after vegetarian meal and 50 thousand ways to cook salmon. 

What do you all love for dinner? I'm always looking for inspiration!
