The weather is getting warmer so I have started to make lighter meals. I discovered the wonderful Marché des Batignolles just next to our place and you can get wonderful fresh salmon. J and I are mad about salmon, and we both like it cooked the same way (practically raw) so I fry it with the skin on with no oil for around 5 minutes and then turn the heat off. This means that it is warm, but the top of the salmon is still raw. The skin can just be peeled off before serving.
I have rediscovered my love for sweet potato. To accompany the salmon I cooked 2 small potatoes, 1 sweet potato and 1 broccoli in coconut oil (it isn’t good to cook with olive oil). I seasoned with garam masala, and sprinkled chia seeds on top.
Have you heard of chia seeds before? They are wonderful. Chia seeds provide ample calcium and protein to your tissues. The seeds are also rich in boron, which helps the body assimilate and use calcium. The nutrients also support proper brain functioning. To put the cherry on top, they can also help you shed some kgs, for two reasons. The first reason is that they are so filling that you will eat less of other foods. The second reason is that they actually bulk up and cleanse your body of old “junk” in your intestines. You cannot taste them, so you can put them with nearly anything. I sprinkle them on vegetables and put them in smoothies!
To side this delicious salmon and vegetables, we had half a mango each and green tea. The perfect balanced meal!
