Salmon kale caesar salad cravings in full effect tonight ??♀️. Following day characterized by pizza + a few extra sweet treats (I see you, dark chocolate cashew butter blondie crumbs ?), greens are sounding sooo good. I’m often asked if I have “cheat meals” or “cheat days”, and the answer is no. I believe in “balance” (that word is somewhat ambiguous), and for me that means eating a cupcake in the afternoon and a salad in the evening. It means ice cream on a Monday and pizza on a Friday. It means chocolate at 9am and celery sticks at 11pm (although I rarely crave celery at that hour ?). It took me awhile to get to this point — to feel comfortable enough with body to eat what I want when I want; to trust that craving cues naturally balance themselves out (they almost always do!). If self-imposed food rules are something you struggle with, I encourage you to take a leap of faith and enjoy that one THING you were craving all week sometime this weekend ✊??. ⠀
whatsonmyplate: ?? baby kale ? tossed in @primalkitchenfoods caesar dressing •• seared crispy salmon: season salmon fillet with sea salt and black pepper. In a non-stick pan, heat 1 tsp. avocado oil (or garlic ghee) for one minute; add salmon filet, skin side up, and sear for 3 minutes, then flip and let it finish cooking on its skin, approx. 4 mins. •• avocado ? (I like to stir/smash it into the salad for extra creaminess) •• pan-grilled halloumi •• @traderjoes EBTB seasoning • parmesan •• hemp hearts •• red pepper flakes ?.
