Garlic Herb Salmon Sandwich

Disclosure: I received the Sabra Spreads mentioned in this post. Opinions stated are my own.

While the sabra spread contest ended a few weeks ago, my use of the spreads is still going strong. I’ve used the garlic herb and cracked pepper on eggs and roasted potatoes but, I had to share this sandwich recipe, too. Last week on “National Kale Day” (yeah, I celebrate as many of those food days as I can), after a tough workout, I decided to throw the grilled salmon that I had marinated in the Sabra spread on some sprouted grain bread with steamed kale, sprouts, onion tomato and more of the spread. It was amazing! It’s also a lot easier than you think to make delicious salmon on a weekday! Hopefully I can motivate you to cook up this great source of recovery protein and anti-inflammatory omega-3’s and throw it on some sprouted grain bread to refuel those muscles! 

The veggies and sprouts are an easy way to give your sandwich a nice crunch, and make it more colorful. Remember, you eat with your eyes first and should be eating a rainbow! I used Lancaster Food Co. bread this time around but, you can read more about my bread recommendations here. Continue reading

Meal Prep for the Busy Athlete

I have shared several meal prep posts in the past but, with a new school year underway, many college athletes are looking for inspiration! I know you are probably thinking “don’t college athletes just get free training tables after all of their workouts?”. It doesn’t work like that if you aren’t competing for a fully funded athletic department, for example, in the SEC. If you are living an athlete-life like I did in college, you may be living off campus in your own apartment your junior and senior year, having the occasional on-campus meals with your younger team-mates extra meal plan swipes. For much of the rest, other than travel and competition days, you’re likely on your own!
