Easy, Stress-Free Meal…

We’re moving State (again!) …but this time we’re off to DENVER! Even though we have been talking about it for months, it has crept around so quickly and suddenly! I found myself so pre-occupied with packing the other day, that I totally forgot about prepping lunch. That was SO unlike me! Food is always on my brain, but it just became a distant thought for about an hour! So when lunchtime rolled around, I was unprepared AND all I fancied was something with salmon in!

Healthy Bowl Of Deliciousness…

This bowl of deliciousness was created in under 30 minutes and was SO EASY to make! My recipes don’t always work out. To be honest with you all, it usually takes me at least two attempts (with modifications) to nail a recipe…however, this one came out perfect first time! I was SO happy with the results and could not wait to share this fast and healthy recipe with you guys!

What You Need:

  • Olive oil and Sesame Oil – If you don’t have sesame oil, then olive oil will be a fine substitute!
  • Salmon – Salmon is a great source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids. It also contains high levels of potassium, vitamin B12 and vitamin D. These are crucial for boosting your immune system, balancing blood sugar levels and reducing inflammation.
  • Coconut Aminos – Coconut aminos is a low-carb soy sauce alternative. I use it in almost all my Asian recipes, including this Chicken & Cabbage Stir-Fry and Thai Tuna burgers with Asian Slaw.
  • Rice Vinegar – Make sure you opt for plain rice vinegar (not seasoned) as it does not have any added sugars in it and has 0g net carbs per serving!
  • Fish Sauce, Ginger & Garlic – These ingredients are crucial for adding flavor and flare. Feel free to adjust the quantities of these ingredients (in small amounts) to suit your tastebuds!
  • Monkfruit Maple Syrup – This adds a little extra sweet taste. Just 1 tsp of this low-carb, sugar-free maple syrup (or granulated sweetener) may not seem llke a lot, but trust me, you really don’t want it too sweet!
  • Cauliflower (small) – For this recipe, I had a small cauliflower head in my fridge waiting to be riced. You can rice your own cauliflower with a cheese grater or food processor. However, you can buy prepared cauliflower rice (fresh and frozen) which is much more convenient! If you go for frozen, just make sure that it cooks for a good 2-3 minutes more than directed below.

Optional Toppings:

Choose your favorite veggies to make this recipe your own. Here are some options that might take your fancy:

  • Red Cabbage
  • Tomatos
  • Avocado
  • Cucumber
  • Radishes
  • Carrots
  • Sesame seeds (toasted)

Meal Prep…

I have never been into meal prep recipes, butttt this one is FANTASTIC! Allow the cauliflower rice and salmon to cool down completely before transferring to an air-tight container or bento box. Fill with your favorite prepared vegetables and refrigerate for 3-4 days. DON’T put the Teriyaki Sauce on any of it, instead keep it in a separate air-tight container (in the refrigerator) and drizzle it on just before you are ready to tuck in!
