Healthy eating. It’s on everyone’s new year’s resolution list… and this year I am adding it to mine. Not to say I don’t already try to eat healthy, but you know me, I can’t say no to dessert… or candy… or chocolate. Moderation is the key… right?
One food that I could “eat like candy” is salmon… and guess what, it’s good for you! In fact, this whole salmon dinner is rather healthy. Mushrooms, bok choy, and sweet basmati rice make this a nutritious, satisfying meal… the perfect dinner to start the new year!
