15 Minute Healthy Dinner: Salmon with veggies & brown rice

Hello you lovely bunch,

I want to try to create more recipe blog posts for you.
However, as you may know from my instagram or youtube videos I like to eat really simple, healthy and super easy to make meals. And because of that I always feel a bit silly calling these super simple meals ‘recipes’ because there is not much skill involved.

But then I thought it could still be useful to some of you as a little meal inspiration.
So here goes my first in hopeful a series of ‘recipe’ blog posts:

Salmon with veggies & brown rice

All you will need:
1 Salmon fillet
Brown rice (I use microwave rice because its soooo easy)
Your choice of veggies
Some spices and maybe some lime juice

First off pop the salmon in the oven at 200 degrees Celsius for roughly 15-17 minutes.
It’s basically the perfect time for you to prepare everything else, once you are done with all the other steps the salmon will be cooked!

Then chop up all your veggies, I used tomatoes, garlic, zucchini and baby spinach.

Once you have chopped everything up – pop the microwave rice in the microwave for 2 minutes.

Heat up some cooking oil in a pan (I use coconut oil).
Add you garlic first and your spinach last.

Once the rice is done your veggies will be starting to soften in the pan. At this point you can add the rice into the veggies (I use half the rice package).

Then you can add some spices, I like to add some chilli flakes and lime juice if I have it available. But you can add whatever you prefer.

Then mix it all together; pop it on a plate and your salmon should be done too!
Super simple & healthy meal in less than 15 minutes – BOOOM.

It really doesn’t need to take a long time to cook healthy meals.
Let me know if you like the idea of having a few of these easy 15-minute dinner recipes available on my blog!

Stay happy & healthy lovelies,

Your Resolutions - A little Reminder

Hello lovelies,
 we are just about seven weeks into the new year and you know what I noticed this week in the gym… it’s empty again.
To me this is a sign that people have given up on their new year’s resolutions already! And I wanted to write this blog post to remind you NOT TO GIVE UP!

You might have fallen off the bandwagon, but guess what - we all do it all the time. You just need to take a step back, think about why you wanted to change your lifestyle in the first place and get back on it.
No matter if it’s weight loss, building muscle, getting fitter, academic or career success it all takes time and isn’t an exponential positive curve. 

There are always fall backs, but that doesn’t mean you aren’t improving in the big picture.

So before you give up completely, reassess your situation! Look at all the progress you have made since December – you are doing well. So get back on it – and don’t give up.
