Salmon

How this Fast Diet Lifestyle works: Eat these meals tomorrow. On Thursday, eat the meals that will be posted on Wednesday.  Eat sensibly the other days of the week.  That’s it.  Simple way to lose weight and be healthier.                                                                                      Welcome to Donald, oyes,  and Liz who are now Following.

Salmon is one of the most perfect foods for Fasters: high in protein; high in Omega3; low in calories; readily available in most locations; and it even has Calcium.  Although we wouldn’t want to eat too much of a good thing, today’s menus feature smoked salmon at breakfast and fresh salmon at dinner.  Eat these both in one day if you are a true affectionado/a of these anadromous fish, or split it up to enjoy Salmo salar [Atlantic salmon] at breakfast one day, and Oncorhynchus nerka or Oncorhynchus kisutch [Sockeye or Coho salmon] at dinner another day.

Spritz an oven-proof ramekin [for 2 people, my Husband likes to use a 6×4” oval casserole] with non-stick spray and set the oven for 350 degrees F. Slice the leek and put in a microwave-safe dish.  Cook in microwave for 30 minutes at high heat to soften the leek. Add leek and salmon to the ramekin. Whisk the egg with the sour cream, dill, lemon juice, and salt/pepper to taste. [NB: some people find dill to be a very strong flavor] Pour over the salmon/leek mixture and bake for 12-15 minutes. Prepare your beverages and dish the berries. Have a wonderful breakfast and a wonderful day.
