It's the most wonderful (and a very busy) time of the year! And with a jam-packed schedule, things often times get skipped. This week has been a good reminder to myself the power of having some quick, go-to meal options when our schedules get filled before the day even gets started!
.
Tonight, I'm going with a (salmon) burger & homemade slaw {recipe below}. .
What's one of your favorite go-to's?!
.
Salmon Burgers with Simple Slaw
Serves 4 / Prep Time: 5 minutes / Cook Time: 10 minutes
For the simple slaw
1 cup shredded cabbage
¼ cup chopped cilantro leaves
3 green onions, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
¼ teaspoon salt
For the salmon burgers
1¼ pounds salmon filet (may also use canned salmon)
¼ cup almond meal
1 large egg, slightly beaten
¼ cup chopped onion
¼ cup chopped red bell pepper
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
4 whole grain hamburger buns*
.
To make the slaw
In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients. Toss well and set aside.
.
To make the salmon burgers
1. Remove the skin and any pin bones from the salmon. Finely chop and transfer to a mixing bowl.
.
2. Add the almond meal, egg, onion, bell pepper, salt, and pepper, and mix until just combined.
.
3. Using your hands, form the mixture into 4 patties, about ¾-inch thick.
.
4. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Place the patties in the pan and cook for 4 minutes, flip, and continue to cook for an additional 4 minutes, until the salmon is cooked through and the patties are lightly browned.
.
5. Transfer to a bun and top with the slaw. Serve.
.
*and if you are looking for even lower carbs, feel free to skip the bun entirely. :)

If you're like me 🙋🏼 the Monday after Thanksgiving is typically when I feel like it’s time to 'get back on track.’ The holiday season is one of the most important times to take care of ourselves, but it can also be one of the most challenging! 
_
Instead of focusing on what not to do, let’s talk about what we can do to achieve the ✨results ✨we're looking for... Today I'm kicking off a totally free 3-part diabetes training series (which includes videos + guides)! --> link in bio to watch 
_
What will you learn in Video 1? 8 key ways to successfully improve your blood sugar TODAY. 🙌🏼
_
My first strategy is to retrain your tastebuds (yep, it’s a thing!) Our tastebuds actually change & regenerate every 10-14 days, so gradually lowering the amount of added sugar & sugar substitutes in your diet will help desensitize your tastebuds when it comes to sweetness. Pretty cool, right? 😝 We can all benefit from doing this, especially if managing #diabetes.
_
And for the other 7 tips (along with some of my favorite downloadable guides and checklists), join me in this diabetes training series {#linkinbio}😉

Pour the batter into the pie crust. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, until the center is set and crust is browned. The pie will pop up like a soufflé while cooking and then come back down, but will not be firm until after it cools.

Our metabolism is the way our body uses the energy it receives from the food we eat. Improving our metabolism will help manage our weight, lower our blood sugar, fuel our daily activities, and keep us healthy overall. 💪🏼🙌🏼
.
While there is no magic pill or quick fix to boost our metabolism (sorry, guys!🙈), but science has proven there are several things we can do regularly to help increase it. The good news is that there are easy to implement (flavorful!) tips that you can try today. 🎉🎉🎉
.
First on my list is drinking green tea. 🍵Just 2-3 cups of unsweetened green tea has been shown to burn more calories and reduce the amount of fat we store. 👌🏼

I've created an easy cheat sheet with my top 8 ways to NATURALLY increase your metabolism while also lowering blood sugar levels. This is ideal for anyone that may have #prediabetes or #type2diabetes

I hope you all are feeling a *little* more rested this morning. How are you using your extra hour? ✨
.
.
I'm heading to workout in a few minutes, but let me tell you...I don't feel like it. 🤷‍♀️ Laying in bed a little longer sounds pretty nice. But what if we *only* did the things we need to do when we felt 100% ready? Only when we slept perfectly, bought the perfect amount of groceries, felt perfectly...I don't know about you, but I wouldn't be getting very far in my personal health goals. Thankfully, it's just one day at a time and today is whatever you make of it! 💪😘
