For dinner, I cooked that beautiful piece of salmon in the oven at 400 degrees for 25 minutes, after it had been marinated in coconut oil, turmeric, fresh tarragon from the 'garden', and s&p. Simple, but really flavorful. I decided to skip mustard this time to try something a little lighter, and I think I prefer roasting the salmon without the mustard.
It's funny, one of my coworkers (and a good friend of mine) mentioned that my meals that I've been eating aren't that different from my regular diet, which is great to hear; that way I know I can maintain this healthier eating! It's all a matter of moderation with dairy and alcohol. My joints will thank me later! It's also, as we've discovered, a heck of a lot of mental will power. I do believe my brain is starting to become trained to crave more healthy foods versus what is fast, easy, and processed. I read today on a website (I think it was mindbodygreen) that you want your grocery cart/basket to look like you're shopping at a farm - stick to the perimeter versus interior aisles where more processed foods tend to be stocked, and load up on fruits and veggies. It also said it's ok to purchase frozen organic fruits and veggies to have on hand, as well as canned beans. It's funny, I've noticed this is what my husband and I tend to do anyway...however the cheese and wine/beer aisle is part of the perimeter, so that counts, right?!
