This sheet pan dinner is the perfect light meal. Lemon salmon on a bed of asparagus with a creamy garlic yogurt sauce. So satisfying yet healthy!
Is anyone else in a post holiday food coma? I feel like I need a hashtag to really accentuate what I’m feeling right now…
Yes. That’ll do. 🙂
I wish I could blame the holidays for my my extra lovable handles that seem to have appeared overnight, but the truth is for the past few months I’ve completely slacked in the healthy eating and exercise department due to stress…
#Ieatmyfeelings #Imoveryou2016 (yes, needed to accentuate that too.) 😉
So back to the grind of simply clean eating, and dusting my running shoes off, because momma needs to get back on the wagon…
I figured I’d start sharing some of my healthy recipes with you in case you’re looking to drop a few pounds too. I was able to lose 50 lbs. last year eating this way and for the most part was able to keep it off.
I don’t diet. I just changed my lifestyle, but fell back into old habits this year and gained some back. No biggie. I at least recognize my bad behavior now and know exactly what I need to do to get back on track.
And don’t worry, I’m human. So there will still be plenty of pasta and delicious soup recipes to go around. Just in moderation. 😉
Like I said, I don’t diet. I’m totally realistic and know that I can eat that bowl of pasta…
…I’m just going to need to run a little harder that day and behave for the next few days to balance everything out.
That was the key for me when I started my weight loss journey last year. I needed to know that I wouldn’t be depriving myself of anything I loved.
(And man oh man, do I love me some carbs.) 😉
But this lemon salmon with asparagus dish comes in a close second…It’s light yet filling and always makes me feel good when I eat it!
Here’s how to make it…Print
I love this salmon recipe. It’s so clean and you can really taste all the fresh ingredients. It’s a great meal to kick off my healthy eating and hopefully yours too!
Talk to you soon friends, take care!
