Break out of your traditional lunch routine with this easy-to-make Lemon Salmon Avocado toast that can be customized to include whatever ingredients you want on traditional or gluten-free bread.
Lemon Salmon Avocado Toast
I do love salmon, but I really hate to cook it, because I did set a pan on fire in the oven recently. I usually order some type of seafood when I go out to dinner because it feels like such a treat to have someone else prepare it, and I feel like it always just tastes better.
But in all reality, I don’t go out to eat that often, and I know that I am not eating nearly enough seafood in my diet.
A Simple Way to Enjoy Seafood
That is why I am in love with these single-serve packs, I can get all the salmon goodness without having to cook it. For those of you who don’t know, about 6 weeks ago I quit my job at the hospital, and honestly, it was the best decision I have ever made.
I was feeling unfulfilled in my work, and getting up to go in every day began to cause me a lot of anxiety. I always talk about finding joy and happiness in our days and lives, and I needed to take the step to take my own advice.
I am so excited to have the opportunity to be present in my business full time and have big plans going into the new year, but working from home full time has been an interesting transition.
A New Meal Time Routine
Of course, I have had to develop new routines, and have found that through intuitive eating, that I don’t really like to eat three standard meals per day.
That’s right, I said it!
I actually prefer to eat my larger meal at lunchtime and have something smaller for dinner. It has actually been quite freeing to not feel like I need to eat at a specific time of day just because that is what we are conditioned to do.
Because I don’t want to waste TOO much time in the kitchen on lunch either (which is just too easy to do) I love this recipe because you can throw it together in literally five minutes.
This recipe is 100% customizable too. Really, you can add any ingredients you want or have on hand, it usually all tastes good together in the end.
