INGREDIENTS 1 can wild-caught pink or red salmon 1 cup cooked sweet potato, mashed 2 large eggs, beaten 1/2 cup almond flour 1/2 cup fresh parsley leaves, minced (about 2 tablespoons) 1 teaspoon paprika Celtic sea salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper zest from 1 lemon 2 tablespoons ghee, melted
DIRECTIONS 1. Preheat the oven to 425F and cover a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Drain the liquid from the salmon and using your fingers, crumble the fish into a large mixing bowl, removing the bones and flaking the fish. Add the sweet potato, eggs, almond flour, parsley, salt, paprika, black pepper, and lemon zest. Mix well and refrigerate for 10 minutes.
3. Brush the parchment paper with some of the melted ghee, then use a 1/3 measuring cup to scoop the cakes and drop them onto the parchment. The patties should be about 2 1/2 inches wide and about 1 inch thick. Brush the tops of the cakes with ghee, then bake for 20 minutes. Carefully flip each patty with a spatula and return to the oven. (Brush with more ghee if that tickles your fancy.) Bake an additional 10 minutes until golden brown and crisp. Serve with a squeeze of lemon juice and your sauce of choice.
1/2 head Savoy cabbage, cored and thinly sliced (4 cups)
6 tablespoons olive oil, divided
Coarse salt and pepper
4 skinless salmon fillets (4 to 6 ounces each)
1 teaspoon lemon zest plus 2 tablespoons juice
1/4 cup fresh dill, chopped
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss kale and cabbage with 2 tablespoons oil and spread in an even layer; season with salt and pepper and bake 6 minutes. Stir. Season salmon and add to baking sheet. Bake until salmon is cooked through, about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, whisk together lemon zest and juice, dill, mustard, and remaining 1/4 cup oil. Season. Drizzle salmon and vegetables with dressing before serving.
5 MIN OATMEAL POWER BOWL
1 ripe banana, mashed (the more ripe/spotty the better)
2 tablespoons chia seeds
heaping 1/3 cup rolled oats (use certified gluten-free if necessary)
The night before: Grab a medium bowl and mash the banana until smooth. Now stir in the chia, oats, cinnamon, milk, and water until combined. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
In the morning: Scoop the oat mixture into a medium pot. Increase heat to medium-high and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat immediately to medium-low, and stir frequently until heated throughout and thickened. At the end of cooking, stir in flax (optional).
Pour oats into bowl. Garnish with your desired toppings. Get cozy!
Notes: 1) The ground flax is optional because it creates a bit of a strange texture (almost like a flax egg) in this oatmeal. I don't mind it, but some people might. So if you think you will, just leave it out or sprinkle some ground flax on top instead. 2) I love topping my oats with spices - a pinch of cinnamon, ground ginger, and allspice create my perfectly spiced bowl.
