I’m always looking for new ways to serve salmon. I personally LOVE salmon (and can’t wait to give it to baby Luca!)
Something I always have in my fridge (during the fall/winter months) are brussels sprouts and carrots, so this meal came together easily and with a few Asian pantry items, it didn’t require any additional shopping!)
I’ve been in the protein/starch/veggie rut before – and hey, sometimes it’s a comforting way to eat and there’s no “what are we going to have for dinner?” brainstorming sessions. I love those types of meals because they’re easy and if seasoned right, still delicious.
Hoisin sauce is like an Asian barbecue sauce and it’s so flavorful and goes well with veggies, especially heartier ones like brussels sprouts and carrots. It works as a marinade and a sauce, I recommend keeping some in your pantry for throw together meals like this one!
Anyway, on a more personal note, today marks one week since I “developed” Bell’s Palsy. If you don’t follow me on Instagram and didn’t see, I woke up on Wednesday with Bell’s Palsy, basically. I’m going to write a post on all of this, but, I’m happy to say that I have seen mild improvement and I’m keeping positive and hopeful. Bell’s Palsy affects everyone differently – some people it’s for a few days, some for a few weeks, few months, some for a few years and some, they are left with partial paralysis for life.
I’m trying not think of the latter, but it has definitely been a scary experience. I’m trying to eat anti-inflammatory foods (like this salmon, brussels, and carrots!), do regular acupuncture, cranial sacral therapy, and see all the right doctors.
Food is medicine, I truly believe that, so I’m trying my best! Hope everyone has a great end of your week!
