29 Apr

let’s fast-forward to summer, k? and use the grill for every meal! breakfast included.

here’s last night’s simple dinner, enjoyed al fresco.

grilled salmon, kale, and grapefruit salad (serves 1):

  • 2 cups washed, dried, and chopped kale (any variety)
  • 1/2 grapefruit, de-seeded and peeled
  • 1/4 cup red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup julienned carrots
  • 1/4 cup lentils, 1/4 cup quinoa
  • filet of salmon; marinated in olive oil, garlic, and parsley (s & p to taste)

*the lentils (legumes) and quinoa (seeds!) are optional, but they’re chockfull of protein to throw into leftovers during the week. win-win.
