During my off weeks, I love to cook my meals at home. Trying out new restaurants is always a fun time, but no matter how healthy you attempt to eat on the road, it is never as healthy as home cooking. Also with all my dietary restrictions, it’s difficult to find dishes at restaurants that I can eat and sometimes (shockingly this happens quite frequently) even when I tell the waiter that I have an allergy to gluten and dairy, they still accidentally slip in some cheese or stuff on my dish.
That’s why I love to cook whenever I can. I can control the amount of seasoning and salt that goes into the dish and all the ingredients. There are no mystery ingredients and I know for sure I won’t get sick afterwards or look like the guy from the movie Hitch.
I try to eat Paleo as much as I can because it really helps to control the inflammation in my body. At first it seemed difficult, but there are so many ways you can cook protein and veggies that it became easier once I got the hang of it.
This furikake salmon dish is one of my favorite salmon recipes…it’s creamy, spicy, and sweet. This recipe was inspired by the volcano dynamite rolls found at sushi restaurants. I took the inspiration from the Mayo sauce found on these baked rolls and simply just put it on the salmon. The broccoli found on this place is just a simple roasted recipe. It is my go-to recipe when cooking veggies because I feel like roasting the vegetables really brings out the sweetness and flavor.
