The Best Baked Salmon and Asparagus You’ll Ever Have!

I’ve been happy beyond words to see wild sockeye salmon and local spring asparagus at our neighborhood market recently. This means there’s very little discussion about dinner lately — baked salmon and asparagus. We’ve been feasting on the most incredible melt-in-your-mouth salmon, loaded with healthy omega 3’s and antioxidants. Local is always best, but with fish it can be tricky. I prefer to buy wild salmon from Alaska than farmed fish in my own area, and when I make that choice, I’m sure to source everything else locally. When the salmon are running here in the Northeast, then of course we’ll choose that. I suggest weighing the pros and cons and making the choices that feel right for you, in all things.

This recipe works well with any fish or whatever vegetables are in season where you live, but this this baked salmon and asparagus combination is a true winner, and I highly recommend trying it at least once!

This Is What Healthy Chicken and Waffles Looks Like

Incorporating last week’s gluten-free waffle recipe, here’s a complete meal that shows just one of the many ways you can use those versatile (and yummy) waffles. Our healthy chicken and waffles recipe is a Clean twist on the classic Southern meal. Usually served fried and covered in syrup, we’ve made this version entirely suitable for lunch on the Clean Gut Cleanse, by baking the chicken instead instead of frying and using coconut for the breading. And of course the waffles are gluten-free. This meal is packed with tender and juicy protein for some seriously healthy chicken and waffles and incredibly delicious grub. Hope y’all enjoy.

A Soup and Sandwich Combo That Will Make You Happy

These two recipes together create a unique twist on the classic soup and sandwich combo. Parsnips come with a variety of nutritional benefits, including fiber, vitamin C, and folate. The vegan-friendly chèvre sandwich uses macadamia nut cheese, which is soft and with a texture similar to goat-cheese. The nut cheese doesn’t melt like cheddar, but this is no loss — it’s absolutely delicious. Prep the sandwiches while the soup is cooking. Wait until you’re reheating the soup before you grill the sandwiches, that way everything will be warm and ready to serve at the same time. The soup is perfect to have on the 21-Day Clean Program, but this soup and sandwich combo is great anytime. Enjoy.
