Salmon Cakes with Spinach and Apple

22 Apr

It started with finding canned salmon in my cupboard. I didn’t think it would taste too good just plain. So what did I do?

I created salmon cakes:)

Spinach is a typical add in to patties like this, but apple, that was something I just decided would taste good. And guess what? It did! Extremely good. Plus, with the cake being sprinkled with coconut flour, it had this sweet yet savory taste that was absolutely delicious.

These cakes are high in protein, and packed with fruit and veggies. What more of a healthy snack/meal on the go could you ask for?  Usually cake patties like this are packed with carbs like bread crumbs or flour..but not these. And of course, like all my healthified dishes, they taste amazing as well as being nutritious.

10 Mar

Are you looking for something healthy? Something that satisfies that craving for delicious combo of  fresh tomato sauce and melted cheese? Something that’s  quick, and can be served as a light meal or a great appetizer/side? Well I created it for you!

Eggplant is a low carb option as it’s a vegetable, and is so yummy when cooked just for a few minutes in the oven, or grilled if you have a little more time! The great thing is that this recipe will take you less than 30 minutes to make! So it’s a great one for when you’re too hungry to wait or just in a rush! These can satisfy that mouth watering taste of pizza, chicken parmesan, and lasagna :) My eggplant parmesan wedges ladies and gentlemen..
