Well, helllloooo! And happy 2019!

Wow. Always weird to say the number of the new year. It’s kind of cliche but it always sneaks up on me! I’m thinking we should embrace it with this yummy & easy dinner recipe because:

your 2019 needs this easy paleo teriyaki salmon.

 

It’s my favorite meal that I’ve made these past couple of months, and I foresee it coming back again and again in our weekly meal plan for three reasons:

  1. This salmon recipe is super easy to make – most of the cook time is hands off.
  2. It’s also crazy healthy and free from all the inflammatory ingredients that usually gunk up a standard teriyaki sauce.
  3. SO YUMMY. Like so much flavor. With just the right sticky texture and a sweet to salty ratio that will keep you coming back for bite after bite. (The first time I made this recipe, my husband and I didn’t even bother eating off of plates. Literally devoured a whole batch straight off of the baking sheet. Savage I know, but don’t judge until you try this salmon for yourself! 😜)

I figured why not get the year started with a dinner that says: 2019, we are HERE – with some crazy delicious food in tow 💯

Food that is the equivalent of a power pose meal. Strong, bold, and good for your self confidence 😉

I’m not gonna lie. Discovering how to make bulletproof coffee AT HOME was nothing short of a life changing experience for me.

I had tried it a few times and heard people talk about it for a long time before I made it myself, because somehow it seemed intimidating. Every time I even THOUGHT about making it myself I ended up with more questions than answers.

What even IS bulletproof coffee?

Is bulletproof coffee good for you?

Can you make it hot AND cold?

Do you need a blender to make it?

Is it sweet? Not sweet?

How do you make it so creamy?

What does it taste like?

But mostly – how good could coffee with butter and coconut oil even BE?!

Well my friends, after taking a big deep dive into the world of bulletproof coffee (or boosted coffee, as some call it) I’m so very happy to report that when you make it right, it is indeed very, very good, and not at all hard to make.

Picture your morning cup of coffee all LUXE, creamy, and flavorful with a rich fullness that not only energizes you but ALSO satisfies your every wish for what a morning beverage could be.

Yup, ALL THAT.

Now do you see why I’m so in love?

It’s kind of like a latte but honestly better. Maybe like a latte on it’s very best day. A day where latte’s have superpowers.

Okay guyssss! The final stretch is here.

My dinner plan is made and most of my shopping is done. I spent the weekend running around and gathering all the necessities for the BIG DAY.

AKA now my refrigerator and pantry are absolutely at their max capacity 😛 And fitting it all wouldn’t have even been possible without A LOT of rearranging. Hiiii 18 pound turkey! 👋🏼

We might have to eat out for the next few days since I’m pretty sure literally nothing else will fit in my refrigerator. Either that or buy the ingredients for dinner and head straight to the kitchen to cook.

We’re not traveling to see family for this holiday, but instead taking it easy and eating all the yummy things and giving thanks with the perfect little family of friends that we’ve got here in Seattle.

Which means that even though we’re hosting, we kind of get off easy on the cooking portion of things, because we’re doing the big dinner potluck style.

I’ll be making the maple glazed spatchcocked turkey from Play’s Well With Butter – substituting ghee for butter, my paleo (and vegan!) healthy green bean casserole, a gluten free southern style  stuffing (bacon included 💯), two kinds of gravy (my gluten free and vegan mushroom gravy, and a more classic style), the stunning holiday hummus from With Food and Love for pre-dinner snacking, and this gorgeous perfect pumpkin cheesecake (with gluten free gingersnap cookies for the crust) also from Plays Well With Butter for dessert.

Plus an apple tangerine rum spritz cocktail (that’s the last thanksgiving recipe coming your way in a day or two!) to get the good vibes rolling while we finish making all the tasty things in the kitchen.

Everyone else is filling in the rest.

Aaaaand how could I forget, ALSO these maple chili glazed carrots with thyme and pomegranates bc I’m 100% #teamsidedish 😜
