Why You Should Eat Salmon

When you are feeling sluggish, salmon is the perfect brain food. It’s an excellent source of high-quality protein, vitamins and minerals, but it’s the omega-3 fatty acids that will give you the brain boost. These fatty acids are thought to contribute to healthy brain function,  along with being good for your heart, joints and general wellbeing. Eating fish may reduce the risk of heart disease as well.

To make your girl’s night in complete, I’m sharing my favorite recipe for Baked Chicken Nachos! This sheet pan recipe is fabulous for dinner as well.

Have you seen this film yet? It features four Hollywood icons together on screen! Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen and Mary Steenburgen. They get together to discuss the latest book they’re reading, but end up talking about so much more! They inspire each other to make their next chapter the best chapter.

I love the theme that it’s never too late to live your life to the fullest! Download the film on iTunes and make plans to watch it at home this weekend. The release includes hilarious bonus content, like the making of the film, deleted scenes, and more.

When hosting a girls’ night in, these baked chicken nachos are super simple! Buy some ready-made rotisserie chicken at your local grocery store and you’ll have a tasty snack to eat in minutes. Feel free to change the nacho toppings to whatever you prefer. The fun part is making and eating them!

Sheet Pan Chicken Sausage and Vegetables

I have become very much obsessed with sheet pan dinners! With only one pan to clean, you can’t go wrong with a sheet pan dinner.  This recipe for Sheet Pan Chicken Sausage and Vegetables is a quick low carb dinner you can whip up in no time! If your kids are super picky like mine, serve the chicken sausages in buns or sliced up into pasta. Sweet Italian chicken sausage tastes really good and surprisingly my kids eat it. That’s a win!

I recently did a poll on my Instagram story about red bell peppers vs green bell peppers. Turns out most of you like red bell peppers best!

Sheet Pan Chicken Sausage recipe and Bell Pepper poll. Which is best green peppers or red peppers?

I did a Google search to see which color of bell pepper is best and found this…

Red bell peppers boost your immune system due to high vitamin A, C and antioxidant properties, including beta carotene, which helps maintain healthy skin and vision. In fact, these mighty red vegetables contain 1.5 times more vitamin C, 8 times more vitamin A and 11 times more beta carotene than green bell peppers.”

So of course I had to pack this Sheet Pan Chicken Sausage dinner with lots of red bell peppers!

 

Sheet Pan Chicken Sausage and Vegetables is a perfect recipe for a quick low carb healthy family dinner!

After eating my way through Austin this past weekend for a conference, I felt a little better about myself by cooking with a rainbow of vegetables. Yes, after coming home I always “pretend” to be healthy after stuffing my face with tacos and cookies on my trips. LOL

If you want to see what I was up to in Austin, visit my Instagram post here. There are several photos on my post that you can click through. And YES, that is Andrew Shue, Billy from Melrose Place! (swoon!) Does that guy ever age? I don’t think so!

 Simple Sheet Pan Dinner Kitchen Hack

Besides cooking this sheet pan dinner with red bell peppers, I added red onion, yellow squash and broccoli. Most sheet pan dinner recipes call for you to toss your food with seasonings directly on the pan, but I like to toss them in a bag for less mess.

Here is my kitchen hack… use the grocery store bag that vegetables come in to coat your veggies with olive oil and seasonings. This way, you aren’t wasting a gallon zipper bag and would have probably thrown away that vegetable bag in the end anyway.

Spicy Chili Lime 10 Minute Sheet Pan Salmon Recipe

With our busy lives, I’m a huge fan of sheet pan dinners and I’m happy to share this new sheet pan salmon recipe that I think you’re going to LOVE!

When I travel, I love trying new food. I was lucky enough to visit the island of St. John, right before Hurricane Irma slammed into the island. While there, I ate at The Longboard where they served up the most amazing spicy Brussels sprouts that I had ever eaten. When I asked about the spices, they said they used Sambal Oelek. Sambal Oelek is a chili paste made fiery red chilies, vinegar and salt. I had never heard of this! So I immediately ran out and got some when I got home. You can find it at most grocery stores and it will change your life! I use it in so many dishes now.

Sambal chili paste is the perfect addition to this Sheet Pan Salmon recipe. A mixture of lime juice, honey and Sambal Oelek makes this salmon, Brussels sprouts, broccoli and peppers a mouthwatering dinner!
