Spicy Salmon w/ Lime & Avocado

(Original recipe: http://www.thecookierookie.com/salmon-with-avocado/)

Start with 2 lbs of salmon cut into 4 pieces. (We get ours at Costco, it’s great!)

Make spice mix (2 tsp of: salt, pepper, cumin, paprika, and onion powder, 1 tsp of chili powder).

Rub one side of fish with olive oil.

Cover with half the spice mixture.

You can refrigerate it here if you have time. I usually come home from work and do this part and go exercise.

Preheat grill and throw the fish on, spice side down. Cover other side with oil and spices. Cook halfway and flip.

Mash up an avocado with the juice of 2 limes and some salt. (You can add half a red onion here but I don’t because 😝😝)

Cook fish til it’s done, top with avocado mix, eat. I was surprised at how good it was. I’m not a big salmon person but I can see myself eating this once a week even after Whole30.

Whole30 Day 15

Halfway!

Breakfast: sweet potatoes, peppers, and tomatoes

Lunch: coffee & taco bowl (chicken, peppers, tomatoes, avocado, chipotle salsa)

Dinner: spicy salmon with avocado and lime (again. It’s so tasty and couldn’t be easier to make.)

Spicy salmon with avocado & lime. Favorite #whole30 meal, I’ve had it 3 times already and it’s only #day15

Bar Harbor ME

Day 2 in food/booze pics!

Breakfast at the Stonethrow Inn was delightful. Poached pears and blueberry pancakes with lemon curd on morning #1. Apple and cheddar waffles on morning #2. Always with toast and yogurt and coffee and tea and muffins.

We had popovers, coffee, and a cheese plate on the lawn at the Jordan Pond house.

We relaxed with some Bar Harbor Wine after a day of hiking on the back porch of the B&B.

And headed in to town for a beer tasting at Bar Harbor Brewing Co.

Whole30 Day 14

Breakfast: sweet potatoes, peppers, and tomatoes and hot water with lemon

Lunch: leftover spaghetti squash with turkey meat sauce and a coffee

Snack #1: banana with almond butter

Dinner: leftover artichoke lemon pesto chicken spaghetti squash

Snack #2: kiwi and herbal tea

Almost halfway there! Feeling good. I miss wine & the social aspect of going out to dinner or to happy hour. That’s about it though.

October shopping

I decided to give up shopping in September (along with booze, sugar, bread, dairy, beans because if I’m gonna be miserable why not be SUPER miserable). So instead of shopping I’ve just been making a pretty intricate fall shopping list.

I’m thinking my California trip will involve lots of leggins, tees, and cardigans since we’ll be driving and hiking/exploring a lot.

THE LIST

Everlane u-neck short sleeves tees in various colors (navy, grey, copper, root, field)

A few long sleeve tees from Everlane

Cuyana regular tote bag in caramel

A maroon crossbody bag w/ gold hardware

A black crossbody bag w/ gold hardware

Black hobo (possibly the Joie Edie zip tote)

Tall brown boots

Grey boots

New leggins/stretch pants

Plain blouses in black, maroon, tan, grey…..

Grey sweatshirt

Navy flats (prob Yosi Samara)

ALL the cardigans (white, tan, brown, black…. Regular length and long)

Simple gold bracelet
