Playing in the Kitchen
I finally got a spiralizer for Christmas, after 2-1/2 years on a paleo diet. The inner child in me is very pleased! Do you have one? It is super-fun! If you don’t have one, no worries. You can make zucchini noodles with a julienne peeler, or wider noodles with a regular vegetable peeler. Zucchini’s not picky.
The Importance of Seafood on a Healing Diet
As part of my healing protocol, I’ve made an effort to eat more seafood. This was a big switch for me. Although I grew up on Cape Cod, I hated seafood as a child. Now, I’ve come to love it. I’m still kind of amazed. Taste buds do change (with a little effort).
Why the effort? Both Dr. Terry Wahls (author of The Wahls Protocol) and Dr. Sarah Ballantyne (author of The Paleo Approach) recommend wild-caught seafood as an important part of our diet. This is because it’s the best natural source of anti-inflammatory omega 3 fatty acids.
If you have concerns about eating seafood, read my article: Does Healthy Sustainable Seafood Exist? Wild Alaskan Salmon is one of the best choices you can make. If you can’t find it locally, I recommend Vital Choice Seafood. They sell salmon pieces in 1 lb. packs for a much lower price than the filets. Those pieces are perfect for this recipe.
