Happy Hump Day, lovelies! Today, I'm sharing one of my new favorite recipes. I made it last night, and it will definitely be a staple in my meal prep from here on out! I adapted the recipe from Skinny Taste and made it my own. You can find the original recipe here! Alright, let's get started!
For the Veggies:
I guess I've been on a salmon kick lately, but I saw this recipe from Kayla Itsines, The Bikini Body 28-Day Healthy Eating & Lifestyle Guide, and I knew I had to try it. I follow her workout guides and eating guides religiously. She has the same philosophy as I do about being healthy and fit. Your body needs all food groups including carbs and good fats. The secret is to eat fresh, unprocessed foods, not "low-carb, low-fat, reduced calorie" foods. With omega-3-packed salmon (great for a mood boost!), fresh veggies, and plenty of fresh and healthy fixings, this light take on a burger will be even more flavorful than the ones you're used to.

I made my burgers without the caper yogurt the first time because I'm not a huge "sauce" fan and they were absolutely delicious! The second time, I got some courage and made them with the caper yogurt, and they were amazing too! The yogurt definitely adds a little extra oomph! to the burgers, so if you love flavor the caper yogurt is a must. I also put the yogurt on a piece of grilled salmon that I had for lunch one day, so there are lots of ways to use the sauce if you don't use it all on your burgers.
Eating healthy doesn't have to be boring. I hope some of these recipes I post show you that!
If one of your New Years resolutions is to eat healthier this year, I've got you covered. I love to cook, especially healthy meals because, for me, eating is a way to fuel my body with the best possible nutrients that will keep me healthy for years to come. It's true... You are what you eat.
Anyway, this spicy salmon with avocado salsa (from The Cookie Rookie) is one of my FAVORITE recipes to make. It's delicious and super easy! Bonus points for that. Even better is it's Whole30. One of my new year's resolutions is to follow my Whole30 diet a little more strictly this year, and I think making this once a week will definitely keep me on track. If you don't know what the Whole30 diet is, you can learn more HERE.
Many people grill their salmon (hence why the picture from The Cookie Rookie says grilled), which I'm sure is amazing! But since I don't have a grill, I just bake mine at 350 degrees for about 25-30 minutes depending on the thickness of the salmon. I think tastes just as amazing baked- so do whatever works for you!
I serve mine with roasted potatoes or a side of veggies! Rice would also be a delicious side to this meal. But honestly, the meal is so filling you could eat it by itself and finish any leftover avocado salsa with a few tortilla chips (not Whole30 approved).
Let me know what y'all think of the recipe!
