Staple Salmon Supper
Staple Salmon Supper
Hi Sisters! I hope you had a wonderful hump day! Two more days left until the weekend, we can do this! I wanted to share with you what I had for dinner! #whatsonmyplate is apparently trending right now, so I wanted to let you know what IBS friendly, low-FODMAP dish is on my plate! I called this post the Staple Salmon Supper, because this dinner is quick, easy, and should definitely be a staple supper for every week! I called it a supper to keep up with the S theme, but did you know that people that say Supper are usually from the south? My Mom and Grandmother say supper 😀 Do you say “supper” or “dinner”?
I bought this salmon filet at Trader Joe’s. They have good prices on wild caught salmon. I personally do not purchase farm raised salmon, but Trader Joe’s does say that everything in their store is GMO free, so if you wanted to save a little cash and go with the farm raised, you should be fine. To pair with this salmon, I used some pre-chopped kale that I also got from Trader Joe’s, and I added in zucchini and squash. I had the zucchini and squash frozen from a few weeks ago. If you ever buy too much produce, or get a discount in bulk, freeze it in sandwich Ziplock bags! When you go to prepare your meal, it’s already cut and ready to sizzle. SO EASY! I cut the salmon out of the package and unthawed it on a paper plate in the microwave. I took one tablespoon of coconut oil, and put half of the oil in one pan, and half of it in the other. I started to cook the salmon, and then sautéed the veggies in the other pan. I did a dash of sea salt in both pans, pepper, rosemary, parsley (which is good for weight loss), and a squeeze of lemon. It takes a little longer time to cook the frozen veggies, so I went and showered while they were cooking 🙂 I like my salmon not too cooked, so took that off of the burner before I walked away. And that’s it! I added some lemon slices to squeeze on top, and wah-la! Such an easy, extremely health meal for a busy mid-week! This would also be really good with brown rice, but I had so many veggies it wasn’t necessary for my appetite! Tons of protein for me after my workout.
Salmon is a great staple item for someone like myself with hypothyroidism, for it has selenium and vitamin D. It also includes Omega-3’s, vitamin B12, and much more. It’s also low-FODMAP and IBS friendly!
Kale is one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet. It also includes Omega-3’s, tons of B vitamins, and thyroid must haves magnesium and iron.
Zucchini and Squash are also among the World’s healthiest foods. Some benefits include anti-inflammatory properties, anti-cancer benefits, antimicrobial protection, and blood sugar benefits.
Lemon has Vitamin C, vitamin B6, vitamin A, vitamin E, folate, niacin thiamin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, copper, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc, phosphorus and protein. WHOA!
Parsley. Yup, you guessed it; another one of the World’s healthiest foods! It can help you lose weight and even help fight against Rheumatoid Arthritis!
Rosemary helps soothe your stomach. I don’t need to know more! Even though there is a TON more 🙂
Coconut Oil, well… didn’t you know that’s good for everything?!
