This week marks teaching at Burn Pilates SIX MONTHS! It’s been a whirlwind and it really does feel like six months, yet it also feels like I just started. It is truly inspiring to see client’s transformations(mentally and physically), and lately, maybe it was the Rihanna vs Beyonce Playlist I had for them today, but clients have been PUSHING! Like 150%. So if you’re a Burn client and have been to my class, THANK YOU for working hard!!
I really have been feeling inspired by my clients/classes to stay on track. Not only does staying healthy give me the energy I need to teach, it allows me to perform better when I attend fitness classes. Working out makes me feel strong and clears my mind, while eating right is my fuel.
After teaching my Sunday double, and doing a home workout, I needed some refuel. This is the perfect balance of sweet, savory, spice, and packs a BIG NUTRIENT DENSE PUNCH!
PINEAPPLE LIME SALMON AND LIME CAULI RICE
Salmon filets (1 per person)
Fresh pineapple chunks
1/2 clove of garlic minced (use 1 whole one if cooking for more than one)
1/2 teaspoon paprika (more for an extra kick)
1 teaspoon of roughly chopped parsley
1 head of cauliflower
2 tablespoons white onion, diced
Joy Loops Hot Pepper Mix
Pinch of Himalayan salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 400F. Tear of enough foil to wrap around salmon filets.
Zest the lime(you may only end up using a little bit, but why not put some in your Paddy’s Day cocktail later this week?!). Then cut in half. Using one of the halves, cut three slices. With the other half, juice it.
Lay foil flat on baking tray, and drizzle a little bit of oil(olive or avocado). Play two slices of lime. Then place two slices of lime. Top with your salmon. Add two pinches of lime zest, paprika, salt and pepper, garlic, pineapple, and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Drizzle with a tiny bit more oil.
Wrap up the foil and bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes, or until salmon is flakey.
FOR CAULI RICE:
In a food processor blitz the cauliflower until rice like consistency. I only used about less than half a cup of cauli rice, feel free to use more or less! Store the rest in fridge, for the recipe coming up next!
In a sauce pan melt two teaspoons of oil or butter of choice, I used Earth Balance Vegan Butter. Then saute the onion until translucent, add in the cauliflower for about 2 min. Stir in lime juice(pan will sizzle) and 3 big pinches of zest, season with salt and pepper, and BOOM! Cauli rice in under 5 minutes that is flavorful!
PLATE UP: Just top a bed of the cauli rice with the salmon, serve with a side of greens, and drizzle a tablespoon of Joy Loops Hot Pepper Mix! Enjoy!
