Salmon and Green Bean Salad for WIAW

I have a few healthy habits that I try to do every day regardless of the season. 

Eat lots of fresh fruits and veggies. 


Sleep.  You know the basics.

This fall though I am really trying to make an effort to drink more water and get outside. Fall is my busiest time of year.  That means sitting behind a desk or traveling all day long. These activities typically leave me dehydrated and drained.

Thus, drink more water and get outside for a few (10) minutes each day are going to be a struggled.

Starting the day with this for breakfast though certainly helps.  Grabbed a smoothie and a latte from Starbucks on my way up to Maine.  Brought an apple from home.

Lunch was out and I forgot to take a picture. There was salad and a very disappointing Roasted Red Pepper Soup.  Instead I photographed dinner.

Dinner was great.  Baked Eggplant Parmesan.  Spaghetti.  And a side of meatballs. I love meatballs so I couldn't resist.

And now I bring you a recipe.  We had this for dinner last weekend.

Frozen salmon.  Green Beans.

This is my new favorite vinaigrette.

And I blanched green beans for the first time ever.  Kind of crazy that I never have. It was so easy and served with this dressing it was marvelous.

Meals like this make it easy to get some extra veggies in your diet.
