Fresh start after the turkey!

Let's face it, most of us lose all control over our appetites during the holidays!  I know that I certainly do.  In fact, the last few months I have been really bad with my eating habits and now I am paying for it.  My body is aching and a neck injury from a great yoga move (OK by great I really mean NOT great)  is just not healing right.  That is all due to not following my anti-inflammatory diet.  Well....tonight that is going to change!  I am getting back on track and creating a recipe right now actually to help me do that very thing.

I made salmon croquettes with an Omega 3 twist by adding flax seed to the ingredients.  So not only do you get the Omega 3 benefits from the salmon, you get it by the flax as well.  These babies are Omega 3 powerhouses!  They are fried in a light drizzle of olive oil and have a browned, crispy outside and tender inside, packed with flavor.  Complimenting them is a wonderful, yet light, dill sauce made with yogurt and olive oil mayonnaise.  Finish this off with a side of roasted sweet potatoes.  What a delicious way to eat well.  You can find these recipes under the recipe tab.
