Baked Salmon with Broiled Summer Vegetables for Dinner!

Daily Tidbit:  Simple recipes, ingredients and preparations can sometimes make for the most delicious meals!  Take my dinner (pic above) for example, this was one of the BEST meals I have had all summer!  And it was only 3 ingredients plus salt & pepper:  Fresh Veggies, Salmon, Canola Oil spray.  Simple delicious food at its best!  (Did I mention it was also easy, fast, and healthy?)

To get some ideas for other yummy and healthy recipes with 5 ingredients or less, check this out: 


Breakfast: Cheerios with Walnuts & Blueberries
1 cup of Cheerios
2 tbsp Walnuts
1/2 cup of Blueberries
1 cup Fat Free Milk
5 oz. OJ
Regular Coffee, black


Chopped Veggies with 1 tbsp of Ranch

Chopped Veggies with HBE

Lunch: Chopped Raw Salad with Eggs
1 cup Mushroom chopped in food processor
1 cup Carrots chopped in food processor
1 cup Broccoli chopped in food processor
1 cup leftover Curry Veggies and Beans and Almonds from Monday
1 tbsp of Ranch Dressing
2 Hard boiled Eggs, chopped on top
Water with Lemon

Tip:  This was a lot of roughage for a plate so to make it easier to eat I decided to chop the big raw veggies in the food processor one at a time and then mix together and toss with the other ingredients.  Also when I'm trying to limit the dressing to 1 tbsp, I find there is better coverage on the food if I first toss everything together in a big bowl with the dressing and then plate it (as opposed to putting salad on plate and then adding the dressing).  This way the dressing has a chance to touch every morsel of food and you can enjoy the dressing's flavor with every bite using less dressing.


Snack: 1 Almond.  I know that sounds ridiculous.  I was transferring the bag of Almonds to a glass jar for better storage and I went to throw away the bag and realized there was one lonely Almond left inside.  Waste not want not!  I ate it.  I meant to have a 'real' snack, but got busy and didn't think about food again until dinner time (this almost never happens!)
