Baked Salmon Recipes on the Go

Salmon steaks with orange and honey sauce
Salmon is a fish that is loved even by people who hate going on diets. Unlike other fish, salmon meat is quite tasty and is rich in Omega-3, which is good for the heart and body. However, the main beef with healthy foods is that they require more time in preparing compared to other types of food. This is why people who are on a busy schedule prefer to grab a bite at the fast food chains or heat up processed foods, which take only a few minutes to prepare.

However, there are baked recipes that are easy to prepare, but are still a delight in terms of taste. This is perfect for working moms who want to prepare a healthy yet delicious dinner for their family, or for busy individuals who need something to fill their stomachs with while still at work.

If you don’t have a lot of ingredients in your kitchen, but still want to make a simple yet sumptuous dinner, you can simply take some salmon fillets, a bit of butter, lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste. Just simply place the salmon fillets in aluminum foil that’s been sprayed with cooking spray. Place the butter, lemon and seasoning along with the fish, then fold the foil loosely until the fillets are completely covered. Now just simply bake the salmon fillets in an oven that’s been preheated at 375 degrees. Bake for 30-45 minutes, and then simply take the fillets out of the foil to serve. This can serve as a great companion to some green salad, soup or mashed potatoes.

Salmon fillets can come in handy for gastronomical emergencies. Simply purchase some fillets, freeze them on your fridge and then take them out when you need them. You can create different recipes with simple salmon fillets just by mixing up the ingredients that go along with them. You may also fry the salmon fillets, but it can take away the salmon’s natural flavoring and can add some unwanted fat due to the frying oil. If you’re on a diet or if you have a health condition, it’s better to stick to baked recipes.

If you want something different, you can also marinate the salmon fillets in sliced red bell peppers, Parmesan cheese, mayonnaise, and crushed garlic. As with most baked salmon recipes, you simply need to wrap the salmon loosely in foil so that it cooks evenly and the salmon absorbs the different flavors of the ingredients that it is mixed with.

For a bit of foreign flavor, you can mix the salmon fillets with pre-made Italian seasoning, oregano, garlic, onions, tomatoes and parsley. Then mix some bread crumbs with vegetable oil and place a spoonful of the mixture on top of each fillet. Pat the bread crumb mixture until it is flat. Again, simply wrap the fillets with foil and bake at an oven set to 450 degrees for around 10 minutes.

Preparing healthy food doesn’t have to be a hassle, and just because it’s healthy doesn’t mean it has to be bland. With these simple yet tasty salmon recipes, you can make the most out of your salmon fillets, and with a bit of creativity, you can even come up with hundreds of salmon recipes.

Exercise after Pregnancy: Why and When to Start

For nine whole months, you have borne your baby in your womb, dreaming of the day when you would be able to take her tiny, delicate hands in yours and today it is a reality. Being a mother has taught you a lot of things from feeding and rocking her to sleep to understanding the nuances of your baby and knowing the right techniques to take her in your arms. And amidst all these things, exercise has long been relegated to the background. However, trivial it may appear in front of your baby, who has already occupied majority of your everyday life now, exercising post partum is crucial if you wish to stay fit and get back to your pre-pregnancy shape again.

Why Exercise?
Ever thought how those gorgeous, svelte, celebrity moms get back to their pre-pregnancy shape so soon? Coupled with the all healthy and nutritious, low-fat diet that they undertake is the fact that they performed exercises both during and post delivery period. If you are feeling too lethargic and dawdling your exercise session, here are a few reasons why you should make some time out for them.

  • Skyrocket your energy- Post pregnancy schedules can be tough and tiring with your baby demanding lots of time from you, especially if you are into absolute breastfeeding. However, once you chalk out a twenty minute exercise regime for yourself, you will feel the difference in your resilience as you go along the whole day changing diapers, bathing and feeding and at the same time managing the household. Exercises by attending to your cardiovascular system make it stronger and help your body endure the burden of the new responsibilities with aplomb.
  • Do away with those post partum depression- If you find yourself undergoing bouts of disillusionment and mood swings, you need not visit the psychiatrist. Post pregnancy depression is a common thing and a daily routine of exercise can go a long way to uplift your spirits and brush aside those baby blues, leaving you fresh and happy.
  • Cast off the extra calories- And last but definitely not the least, exercise, combined with a healthy diet can help you achieve what you have been craving for since you delivered- your pre-pregnancy shape and flattening the bulging belly which makes you look five months into pregnancy.

When to start exercising
While there are certain exercises which you can undertake from the very first day itself, it is generally recommended not to resume exercise after pregnancy for at least 6 weeks if you had a normal delivery or more for a caesarian section. Since the weight gain did not happen in a fortnight, it is also advisable to be patient and get into the exercising regime only when you feel fit.

Kitchen cabinets are already very expensive and installing bamboo kitchen cabinets in your kitchen will not be a cheap venture. If you have a very tight budget, find out how much they will cost per inch and then go ahead with it.

2.   Decide On Your Style
Before going ahead with the idea, of having kitchen cabinets made from bamboo; decide whether it will suit your style. Bamboo will give your kitchen a very hip and modern look. It looks great with stainless steel kitchen appliances and gives your kitchen a modern styling. If you prefer rustic homely things, then it is better to stick to wood cabinets. Keep in mind the type of things you have in your kitchen and whether they would look good with a whole range of bamboo cabinets. You wouldn’t want to have a mismatched hash of different types of surfaces in your kitchen space.

3.   Be Careful To Check Before Buying
As you haven’t handled much of bamboo, it is easy to be hoodwinked and cheated when it comes to finding out a good deal. Be very careful when choosing a bamboo cabinet. The cabinets made from bamboo should be very thick layer and not a mere thin one. The veneers made from bamboo may be very thin. If you are choosing plywood made from bamboo, remember that they can be made completely from bamboo.

4.   Find Out How Green The Bamboo Is
Cabinets made from bamboo, do not always use materials that are 100% green. If you really want to take a step towards a greener kitchen, then you must be careful to9 check the nature of the bamboo used in your cabinet. Some manufacturers tend to use laminated bamboo which uses a chemical processing. Once you know how green your bamboo is, you will also be sure that the amount you pay for it is worth it.
