Meal prepping is really important and can help you to make healthy food choices, but you don’t have to meal prep EVERYTHING. There are heaps of options out there for simple, quick and healthy meals and this salmon and greens is one of my all time favourites!
Get the salmon going first. Once it’s prepped and in the oven it’s the perfect time for you to jump in the shower, pack your lunch for the next day, or whatever it is you gotta do!
Pop the salmon on a baking tray and spray lightly with olive oil. Season with salt, cayenne pepper, lime or lemon juice, and parsley. (If you find yourslef constantly throwing away fresh herbs, there are these little pots of semi dried herbs available from Coles. They are amazing to have in the fridge and they last for ages!) Once prepped, place the tray in the oven on 180 degrees (fan forced) for 20mins. Note – I like my salmon quite well done so cook to your preference!
I love to do green beans, broccolini and asparagus. Cut up and prep your greens before placing them on a little dish. Drizzle with avocado oil and season with salt and pepper. Slide the dish into a freezer bad and fold over to seal. Place in the microwave for 5min or until steamed to your liking.
We just eat the salmon (garnished with sliced avocado) and greens but you might like to add some extra carbohydrates such as sweet potato to your meal.
Cut the sweet potato into small cubes. Roll the cubes in olive oil until lightly coated and season with salt, cayenne pepper, Tumeric and Rosemary or Oregano. Place on a lined tray and cook in a 180 degree fan forced oven for 15-20min one side before flipping over to cook the same on the other side. Note: Turmeric contains curcumin, a substance with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties (bonus!)
This is such a delicious meal and is really quick and easy to whip up. Enjoy next time you are late home from work or just want a tasty and easy dish to enjoy!
