when it comes to making a happy, healthy and hot meal.
One of my latest is Primal Kitchen Honey Mustard Avocado Oil Vinaigrette.
Not only is it amazing for you, it can really perk up a simple meal.
Here’s what I made last night…
Sockeye salmon marinated in the vinaigrette, baked sweet potatoes, and spinach. So simple but really tasty.
Wild salmon is so good for you...loaded with protein and omega 3’s, both of which are awesome for your skin. Please buy wild caught salmon whenever you can. Here’s a post I wrote explaining why:
I used frozen Alaskan sockeye from Target (which is great to have on hand!) After it thawed I placed it in a baking dish, drenched it in the honey mustard vinaigrette, and let it sit in the fridge for a few hours. Then I placed it in a broiler pan and broiled till it was done (about 10 minutes).
Sweet potatoes are rich in beta-carotene, which our bodies convert to vitamin A. It is important to consume some healthy fat which makes that conversion easier. They are also rich in antioxidants. I baked mine at 375 degrees until they were very soft and smelled delicious. They were big potatoes and took over an hour.
I topped the sweet potatoes with a little Kerrygold butter. Seriously the best butter you will ever taste. It is made with cream from pastured cows, and contains higher levels vitamin K2 and CLA than conventional butter.
You know I love to include leafy greens anywhere I can. Spinach is a favorite because it is so quick and easy, and loaded with vitamin K, beta carotene, magnesium and iron, as well as a decent amount of vitamin C. I cooked it in Kasandrinos Olive Oil until it wilted, sprinkled it with a little pink Himalayan salt and called it a day.
A few words about the Primal Kitchen Honey Mustard Vinaigrette…yes, it is pricier than something you would buy at the grocery store. But it tastes amazing and is made with the best ingredients. Avocado oil is loaded with benefits, unlike the crappy, highly processed oils used in the dressings on the shelves of your local grocery store.
