Avocado Salmon Bites

Here is a simple and quick meal from the Dr. Mercola site. It’s the right balance of protein to carb and easy to make. Try it out.

10 ounces wild-caught Alaskan salmon

1/4 cup mayonnaise (ideally homemade)

1 medium avocado, cubed

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

1/3 cup almond flour/meal 

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon onion powder

Natural salt and pepper to taste

1/2 cup coconut oil

Drain salmon (if canned) or press with paper towel to remove moisture and place it into a large bowl. Add the mayonnaise, Parmesan cheese and spices and mix well.

Slice an avocado in half, remove the pit and cube the inside. Add it into the salmon mixture carefully so it doesn’t get mashed.

Form the salmon mixture into balls and roll into the almond flour, covering completely. Set aside.

Heat the coconut oil in a pan over medium heat (but not too high). Once hot, add salmon balls and cook just until crisp on all sides.

Remove from the oil, place on a platter lined with paper towel, if desired, and serve.

Fat Bombs With Cacao

This is also from Dr. Mercola’s site. It introduces the good kind of fat, offering protein for increased energy and healthy bones, muscles and skin (to name a few benefits), and you can eat one any time of day.

1 cup coconut oil

1 cup almond butter

1/4 cup coconut flour

1/2 cup cacao powder

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, heat the coconut oil and almond butter until mixed evenly, stirring often.

Pour the mixture into a bowl, mix in the coconut flour and cacao powder, then place bowl in the freezer for about 15 minutes until the mixture cools and is solid.

Refrigerate the fat bombs for five minutes and enjoy. Store leftover fat bombs in the refrigerator; otherwise they will melt quickly.
