Salmon with Mango Avocado Salsa on Quinoa + Giveaway


The husband and I have been trying to eat better for the past few weeks. We realized that our metabolism rate has dropped significantly over the last few years. Our energy level have been pretty sluggish recently as well, so we made a conscientious effort to eat a little better. My sinuses have been very active lately, and I’m suffering from hives every single day. I’m hoping that a change of diet might do some good for the both of us.

Therefore, I have been trying to create meals that are wholesome, and making the effort to introduce more super-food into our diet. Choosing natural sweeteners, lowering sodium, and picking good fats for the meals I make for the family. This also means that I need to create meals that will appeal to my girls as well, as they will eat what we eat. 

The husband and I really enjoyed this meal, and could not get enough of it, especially the quinoa. The girls on the other hand needed a little bit of coaxing to finish their quinoa. However, the fish and salsa was very well received. Perhaps I should serve this up with wild rice the next time I make it for the girls. 

If you aren’t a fan of quinoa like my girls, serve this with nutritious brown or mixed rice cooked using Tefal’s Advanced Rice Cooker. The specially designed innovative spherical pot creates ideal heat circulation for homogeneous and delicious cooking. The pot is made out of 6-layers, a 2.5mm thick inner pot with durable ceramic coating made for easy cleaning.

The rice cooker comes with 10 cooking programs: white rice, brown rice, glutinous rice, congee, porridge, claypot, steam, soup, and reheat food. There’s something for your everyday cooking needs. The spherical pot rice cooker allows you to prepare starters, main course or even desserts. 

One lucky reader will walk away with this game changing Tefal’s Advanced Rice Cooker. To take part in this giveaway, simply complete the rafflecopter widget at the end of this post. 

Note: The grilled chicken is paleo approved but not quinoa. Substitute with cauliflower rice for a full paleo meal.
