Welcome to another WIAW, with Jenn at Peas and Crayons! Below are my eats from Monday, when I ate salmon at three meals without any intentional planning (I also had a bunch of smoked salmon left over from the weekend). I do love salmon, so it isn’t a surprise. And it comes in so many delicious forms. This day featured smoked salmon at breakfast and lunch and a filet of fresh salmon at dinner, but might just as easily have included a salmon burger or sushi. I try to think about sustainability since I prefer wild-caught salmon, but hopefully I’m doing okay!
Breakfast: One of my smoked salmon scrambles stuffed into a gluten-free wrap, with cucumber slices on the side. I paired this with a cup of berries for a filling morning meal. I also snacked on two slices of Muenster cheese while I was making the scramble.
Morning snack: I grabbed two of my apple cinnamuffins and a smear of cream cheese to take to school, and munched on them around 11am while in class. I usually go for Greek yogurt or peanut butter on my muffins in a hurry, but the cream cheese paired nicely as well, especially with the cinnamon flavor. Kind of like cheesecake frosting!
The only thing that would have made it even more delicious was a dab of jam, because I love that combination – sadly, I did not have the means to cart a jar around in my purse, though I had picked up a jar of the Blueberry Jam at Le Pain when I was there for brunch last weekend.
For lunch, I packed a salad of mixed greens with smoked sockeye salmon, feta cheese, and two grape leaves, eaten around 12:30pm. I had some baby carrots on the side, and the Greek yogurt and apple served as my afternoon snack, which I was gobbling down by 2pm.
Dinner tonight was my own kind of blue-plate special with fish, potato, and veggies all heaped together. Around 6pm, I broiled a filet of salmon with a touch of olive oil and a sprinkle of dill, and paired it with a baked Yukon Gold potato with just a dab of butter and some white Cheddar cheese melted on top. And of course, I had my mixed mirepoix of carrots, corn, peas, and green beans on the side (and on top, and rolling around all over the plate…gotta love it!)
Evening snack: Around 8pm, I made myself a little snack plate with an apple, some peanut butter, an Apples n’ Peanut Butter muffin, and a blueberry Greek frozen yogurt. I used the last of my little peanut butter packets for this (I save them when I get them on planes and such, and use them for meals on the go) because I realized that BOTH jars of peanut butter in my fridge were actually close to empty! I’ll be replenishing my supply ASAP…

You were on a salmon kick this day! Love it! I also love the idea of a smoked salmon morning wrap- yummo!
Oh yes, I was! Still sort of am midweek…sometimes it’s just what you get a craving for.
Salmon! I could eat it for days. I have some smoked salmon in my fridge right now…I should probably eat it asap;)
That salmon salad looks really delicious!
