A few months ago, I did a 2 week clean-eating challenge for myself. I had pre-packaged lunches, which was very convenient, but time-consuming on Sundays. I pray that I can find the time to get this done on Sundays, and figure out ways to make it easier.
In addition to trying to be healthier, Tyler and I are going to try to incorporate more of a gluten-free diet to see if it helps with his inflammation. Being gluten-free definitely requires a lot of research, label-reading, and cooking, but it will totally be worth it if it can make him feel better.
With all this said, I thought I would share my first recipe of the year that fits the healthy and gluten-free goals we've set. Tonight I prepared salmon with a brown sugar & soy sauce glaze served with baked sweet potatoes, and lemon pepper steamed asparagus! It was absolutely delicious. I still need to work on my timing with cooking, but eventually that will get better :)
Here is the link for the recipe for the baked sweet potatoes:
|Just add olive oil, salt, pepper, and oregano|
I marinated the salmon filets in 1/4 cup of brown sugar and 2 tbsp of soy sauce, then baked them in a skillet. Finally I steamed the asparagus and added some lemon pepper seasoning over top! Other than the time it took to bake the potatoes, this meal was rather simple and super delicious!

I will try to post recipes/meal ideas to the blog as I try them. Hopefully, sharing the goodness of a healthy meal will aid in a future enjoyment of cooking.
My other resolution - stick to a study schedule for National Boards. Part I occurs for 3rd years March 19th and 20th. I plan to make a schedule that will help me prepare gradually for the exam. Prayers for my success in this stressful time would be MUCH appreciated!
Happy New Year, everyone! What are your resolutions?? I hope you make 2013 your BEST year yet!!!
