The BEST Salmon Recipe – Apricot Glazed Salmon

The BEST Salmon Recipe- Apricot Glazed Salmon 

Can you believe that I once hated salmon?

Yep, super crazy, but it’s true.

That is why I always tell people not to give up on teaching their kids how to eat.

The palate is something that changes and develops with time.

I once also hated oatmeal and now I love it!

So, if you don’t really like salmon, I encourage you to keep trying it and try it different ways and you may find that you actually like it one day.

My kids both like salmon so I make it often and all kinds of different ways.

I love making salmon because it cooks super fast so its a great week night meal.

I usually serve this with my Healthy Greens Fried Rice, its super yummy.  I also make Roasted Asparagus to go with this meal.  My kids both love asparagus and so do I.  I can just eat it plain with my hands like its candy.  LOL I know, not exactly candy, but its so good.

My family and I pretty much eat gluten-free so the carbs we stick to are………

Gluten-Free Carbs We Eat

  • Brown or Jasmine Rice
  • Quinoa
  • Sweet Potato
  • Beans (black, kidney, cannelini, garbanzos, lentils)
  • Brown Rice Couscous
  • Brown Rice Pasta

None of us have celiac disease but I just don’t find gluten to be healthy or good for anybody.  

I’m not crazy so we will go out and I will munch on a piece of regular bread and I do let my kids moderately eat cookies, etc.  But for the most part we eat gluten-free.

When I took gluten out of my diet, I saw huge results.

I actually have ABS now and I never did before.

I also take gluten and and all the foods on THIS LIST from all my clients diet and they usually drop 10 lbs super fast from the debloat and inflammation that these 5 foods cause (gluten being included).

Inflammation in the digestive track makes it incredibly hard if not impossible to burn fat. So in order to be able to burn fat so you can lose weight effectively, its crucial that you take these foods out of your diet.

Anyhow, back to the recipe.

I had it with just asparagus one night and I cut out the carbs because I had taken my kids out for donuts and guess who ended up eating a donut?

Yep, me, but you know me, all about moderation.  So I enjoyed a donut with my kids and then had a carb free dinner and then back at it the next day.

Do you eat carbs for dinner?

I wrote all about whether Carbs Are Good or Not Good For Dinner or Last Meal.  This will change your life (for real ;))

I hope you enjoy this salmon recipe, its become one of my favorites.

How often do you eat fish?

We do about once a week.  

When I make my meal plan for the week I make sure to make a good variety of foods so I choose fish one night, the other turkey, maybe 2 chickens and every 2 weeks a lean steak.  I like to keep it different so I don’t feel like Im dieting and so that I get different nutrients from different foods.

Do you make a meal plan every week?

Remember that they key to getting results and keeping them is to always be prepared. 

Make a weekly meal plan, get your groceries done all in one day and prep some snacks and meals.

If you do this, your success rate with your weight loss will increase big time 🙂

All the ladies that do My Be Fit Moms Meal Plan lose about 2-6 lbs. per week and they say it saves them so much time and aggravation. 

They never have to think about what to make.  They know they are eating balanced meals that help you burn fat, they know that of course, they are yummy…..  I mean, hellooooo, they are MMF’s Best Recipes :), and they even have a shopping list every week.

This is more than half the battle.  So I encourage you to sit down every week and make your own fat loss meal plan, grocery list and get cookin’.

If you don’t know exactly what foods are fat burning, how to pair the right foods together or maybe you just don’t have time or you have tried so many different things before, you may really enjoy the Be Fit Moms Fat Loss Meal Plan and you may finally see great results and actually not feel like you are DIETING.

That is the whole purpose of the BeFit Moms Program, to lose weight, get toned and not feel deprived, not feel like you are dieting.  And actually enjoying the whole process.

You know I love food and love to eat so to me its important to enjoy everything we eat and just because you want to lose weight doesn’t mean you have to eat close to nothing nor does it mean you have to eat bland and boring.

I can’t wait to send you your first set of meal plans, recipes and shopping lists.

Talk soon 🙂
