With me starting to workout, I knew I should start to eat healthier as well to see the maximum results! With the 21 Day Fix you can eat Salmon and other fish, but Salmon is my favorite so it’s a go to for the house!

This week I made Mediterranean Salmon, I got the salmon from Aldi, so it came with all of the spices already! The cooking instructions for the salmon are just like if you were to cook your own salmon which I do about once a week.

Of course the wine isn’t a part of the healthy eating, but I’m a sucker for some good wine. With the 21 Day Fix you are allowed 2 glasses of wine in exchange for your yellow container (which are your starches)… obviously I did not stick to this rule and kept the starch as part of the dinner.

I love quick dinners (30 minutes max) after a long day at work, especially on a Monday!

This dinner is super simple, see the recipe below:

1 Pre-marinated Salmon from Aldi (can get any kind of marinated salmon from the store, or marinate it yourself!)

1 can Green Beans

10-15 quartered baby potatoes (I seasoned mine with Oregano, Rosemary, Thyme, Salt and Pepper, tossed in a tablespoon of Olive Oil.)

(Optional) 1 Avocado (diced and ate with salmon)

Clean and cut the potatoes, then toss in the olive oil and seasonings. Bake at 350° for 20-35 minutes depending on the size of the potatoes. Then you will want to put some butter in a pan and sear both sides of the salmon, depending on how thick your salmon is you will want to put it into the oven for another 15 minutes or until it flakes with a fork. Once both of the potatoes and salmon are in the oven put your green beans in a pot with some water, lemon juice and butter and let them cook for about 10 minutes (you can also do this in the microwave for 2 minutes).
