Wellness Wednesday – Healthy Meals for a Healthier Lifestyle

///Wellness Wednesday – Healthy Meals for a Healthier Lifestyle


You would be surprised by how good your body will start to feel with a few easy changes to your diet at mealtime! According to Alyn, author at www.glowkitchen.com, salmon is packed with omega-3 fatty acids, which help to treat and prevent inflammation, promote healthy joint cartilage, decrease chances of depression, and increase cognitive function. Salmon is also full of vitamin D, which plays a key role in lowering the risk of several types of cancer, including breast, prostate and colon cancer. Because of its fat content, salmon locks moisture into skin cells, which contributes to a more youthful look, including clearer skin and healthier hair (and decreased hair loss!). The fish is great for eye and cardiovascular health as well.

Wilted Bok Choy and Salmon Recipe

What You’ll Need:

1 large bok choy, chopped
4 tablespoons butter
¼ cup chopped white onion
¼ cup frozen green peas
½ cup vegetable stock
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
2 6- to 8-ounce salmon cuts, without skin
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoon teriyaki sauce
1 teaspoon sweet paprika
Salt and pepper to taste


What To Do:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Brush both sides of the salmon with olive oil and place in a saucepan over medium-high heat, skin side down.
  3. Brush the top side with teriyaki sauce and season with salt, pepper, and paprika.
  4. Place the skillet in the oven for 15 minutes, or until fish is cooked through.
  5. Meanwhile, steam or boil the bok choy until tender – about eight to 10 minutes.
  6. Heat a frying pan over medium heat. Add butter and melt.
  7. Once the butter is melted, add onion to the pan and cook until translucent, about five minutes.
  8. When the onion becomes slightly transparent, add the bok choy and veggie stock. Cook until soft.
  9. Add the green peas, salt, pepper, and thyme. Saute until the stock has mostly evaporated, about 10 minutes.
  10. Remove the salmon from the oven and cover the skillet with aluminum foil. Set aside for five minutes before serving. This allows the juices to relax and distribute throughout the salmon.
  11. Divide the bok choy between two plates and place the salmon atop the bok choy. Serve and enjoy!
