Salmon is a wonderful, delicious and nutritious source of protein. The benefits of salmon include maintaining a healthy heart, clear skin and memory boost. Salmon’s omega 3 fatty acid content help curb inflammation in your blood vessels, halting the build-up of plaque in blood vessels, and can assist in decreasing pain associated with arthritis.

So what are you waiting for? Get cooking with salmon. If you think salmon takes too long to prepare? Well do not think that anymore. Here is a collection of quick and healthy salmon recipes the whole family will enjoy!

1. Slow Baked Lemon and Thyme Salmon

    This may have a title of “slow bake”, but this delicious meal is ready in 30 minutes. The minute I am in the door, I prepare the salmon and then pop it into the oven. I then get changed and prepare the salad while it cooks. No frying means I do not have to stay standing at the stove top watching. Perfect.

    2. Asian Green Beans and Salmon Stir Fry

      I love this recipe due to the fact that it has so many vegetables added to the dish. Be sure to make extra so you have some to take to work for lunch the next day. This meal tastes even better the following day. Try broccoli to give this meal a superfood kick for something different.

      3. Teriyaki salmon

        One of my all time favourite salmon recipes. You can use honey instead of maple syrup if you wish. Instead of serving on a bed of pasta, try serving on a bed of zucchini spirals. There are many different ways to add variety to your meals.

        4. Poached Salmon

          Simmering the salmon allows for the spices and lemon to infuse the salmon and gives it a soft gentle texture. There is only one simple rule here, make sure you do not over cook the salmon. The benefits of poaching/simmering salmon is that the integrity of the fish is not lost if poached correctly leaving you with the most delicious piece of tender fish.

          5. Garlicky Broiled Salmon and Tomatoes

            It is hard to believe that this dish is ready in 15 minutes. Try it out this evening and you will be amazed at how quick this delicious recipe is. Add a green salad to this recipe to add more colour and bulk to your meal.

              This recipe may be a little longer, but 30 minutes if well worth the wait! Make up extra salsa and enjoy the following day.

              7. Salmon Fillet with Lemon Caper Butter

                Do not worry if you do not have any capers. This dish is just as delicious if you are short on them. Quick and easy, simplicity in action. I love the texture of the salmon using this recipe.

                  This recipe is a great way to us up any leftovers. Keep this one in mind next time you have some rice left after a meal. Chopsticks are negotiable.

                  9. Thai Baked Salmon Recipe

                  top-clean-eating-baked-thai-salmon-recipe

                    I love Thai food and this recipe ticks all the boxes for me except one tiny ingredient. Oil spray! Really. Just use the reliable olive oil for basting this wonderful dish instead of the suggested cooking spray.

                    10. One Sheet Pan Parmesan Crusted Salmon with Roasted Broccoli

                      How easy is this salmon recipe? The whole meal cooked in one pan. Now that is my idea of a quick, and nutritious meal. Broccoli and salmon are two of the best superfood combinations.

                      How to Flow Your Way to a More Productive Life

                      How to Flow Your Way to a More Productive Life

                      Ebb and flow. Contraction and expansion. Highs and lows. It’s all about the cycles of life.

                      The entire course of our life follows this up and down pattern of more and then less. Our days flow this way, each following a pattern of more energy, then less energy, more creativity and periods of greater focus bookended by moments of low energy when we cringe at the thought of one more meeting, one more call, one more sentence.

                      Advertising

                      The key is in understanding how to use the cycles of ebb and flow to our advantage. The ability to harness these fluctuations, understand how they affect our productivity and mood and then apply that knowledge as a tool to improve our lives is a valuable strategy that few individuals or corporations have mastered.

                      Here are a few simple steps to start using this strategy today:

                      Advertising

                      Review Your Past Flow

                      Take just a few minutes to look back at how your days and weeks have been unfolding. What time of the day are you the most focused? Do you prefer to be more social at certain times of the day? Do you have difficulty concentrating after lunch or are you energized? Are there days when you can’t seem to sit still at your desk and others when you could work on the same project for hours?

                      Do you see a pattern starting to emerge? Eventually you will discover a sort of map or schedule that charts your individual productivity levels during a given day or week.  That’s the first step. You’ll use this information to plan your days going forward.

                      Schedule According to Your Flow Pattern

                      Look at the types of things you do each day…each week. What can you move around so that it’s a better fit for you? Can you suggest to your team that you schedule meetings for late morning if you can’t stand to be social first thing? Can you schedule detailed project work or highly creative tasks, like writing or designing when you are best able to focus? How about making sales calls or client meetings on days when you are the most social and leaving billing or reports until another time when you are able to close your door and do repetitive tasks.

                      Keep in mind that everyone is different and some things are out of our control. Do what you can. You might be surprised at just how flexible clients and managers can be when they understand that improving your productivity will result in better outcomes for them.

                      Account for Big Picture Fluctuations

                      Look at the bigger picture. Consider what happens during different months or times during the year. Think about what is going on in the other parts of your life. When is the best time for you to take on a new project, role or responsibility? Take into account other commitments that zap your energy. Do you have a sick parent, a spouse who travels all the time or young children who demand all of your available time and energy?

                      We all know people who ignore all of this advice and yet seem to prosper and achieve wonderful success anyway, but they are usually the exception, not the rule. For most of us, this habitual tendency to force our bodies and our brains into patterns of working that undermine our productivity result in achieving less than desired results and adding more stress to our already overburdened lives.

                      Why not follow the ebb and flow of your life instead of fighting against it?
