Wild Salmon With Basil Avocado Dressing

This is one of the first recipes I discovered when I turned Paleo and it is one that has stayed with me all this time so I thought it would be great to share it with you guys! It is one of my to go recipes that I will happily eat 3 or 4 times a week! There is a slight side note though –  It is really important to use good quality wild salmon. A lot of people fall in to the trap of buying farmed salmon because it is cheaper and I can’t stress enough how toxic farmed salmon is for you. Always opt for Wild Salmon. This recipe is super simple to make, its super healthy and its delicious! I like to serve this with a potato, broccoli and cauliflower mash.

  2. Yum yum yum! I’m interested as to any changes you’ve felt/seen after switching to a paleo diet. I’m always interested to learn more about diets that aren’t very common in the everyday world! And by the way, I definitely agree with you about picking top-quality salmon. Salmon is such a great source of healthy fats and protein, but you need to find the right one. Thanks for sharing and happy Monday! xoxo Steph

    1. Thanks for the comment 🙂
      Since switching to paleo, i have lost a load of weight and noticed increased energy levels. Those are the two most noticeable things – but it’s also taught me to be really mindful about what i am eating. Although paleo is a great place to start, i don’t believe it is the absolute answer. I think its important to eat the right diet for you, take in a maximum amount of nutrients and be able to sustain it. I would say my diet is more paleo inspired these days. It’s just really important to listen to what your body wants xx

      1. Ah gotcha! I’ve been always intrigued by the paleo diet but never had anyone to ask. I’m so glad that the biggest takeaway you got from a paleo diet is to be more mindful of what you’re eating! That’s the perfect balance! Thanks for sharing! xoxo Steph
