One Sheet-Pan Roasted Salmon and Red Cabbage

Primal Salmon and Cabbage editedThere’s nothing better than a meal that leaves you only one pan to wash. In this recipe, red cabbage and scallions are roasted on the same pan as salmon (or other fish of your choice). It’s a simple but gorgeous meal, and one that can be eaten hot out of the oven or cold the next day mixed with salad greens.

Red cabbage is used here for its eye-catching color, but this cruciferous veg has so much more going for it than just looks. Sulfur-rich and boasting a whopping thirty-six different anthocyanins, that purple color is screaming out “antioxidants!”

Share Your Success Story, Win a Year’s Supply of PRIMAL KITCHEN™ Mayo!

success_story_contest

Do you have a Primal Blueprint Success Story you’d like to share? Then I want to hear from you!

Write it up and include a photo. Including both pre-Primal and post-Primal pics is best, but not required. Don’t worry if you’re not a chiseled Adonis. This isn’t a “who’s the most ripped” contest. Whether you’ve lost 100 pounds over two years of Primal living or you’ve simply managed to kick that Diet Coke habit, just tell me what going Primal has done for you. I’m looking for interesting and personal tales.

You can include details about your health history, how you found MDA and The Primal Blueprint, what has worked and what hasn’t, what differences you’ve seen in how you look and feel, and anything else you think readers might be able to learn from (that you’re open to sharing) are welcome. It doesn’t have to be a thousand word diatribe, but more than a couple paragraphs is best. Feel free to be creative with your story format, too. Remember, good stories usually have a beginning, a middle, and an end. And of course, honesty is king.

How to Stop Using Food Like a Drug

How to Stop Using Food Like a Drug FinalYou might be hard-pressed to find many people who never take advantage of the “elixir” effects food can have on us. For instance, I’d venture that the majority of us start our day with a cup of coffee or caffeinated tea. Some of us wind down after a long week with a glass of wine or a taste of our favorite bourbon. Even a small dose of sugar during times of excessive stress can lower cortisol (hence why some of us reach for an extra indulgence when things get rough). As long as we’re talking occasional or modest gratification, we can take advantage of these benefits without worry. But for some people, food becomes an ongoing coping mechanism or an unhealthy dependency to get them through their day. Where’s the line between normal indulgence and chronic “abuse” of food? And what do we do when we find ourselves sliding into risky territory?
