Baked Salmon – Garlic Dijon Style

[pinterest count=”horizontal”]

I get tired of the same old meals for lunch and dinner. Shaking it up becomes a must if I’m going to successfully keep myself from buying meals out on a regular basis.

When I eat, I prefer my food to be high in protein and full of flavor. Otherwise, why eat?

Because eating is fun. Duh. How could I forget?

Salmon is a great alternative to your regular chicken or beef dishes. It’s healthy for you and packed with protein and good fats. Gimme those good goods.

Throw it on top of salad for lunch, or pair it with some rice and veggies for dinner. Boom – so easy.
