As the owner of Be Preggo, Be Fit, my longtime friend Natalie Glusman inspires moms to stay in shape during and after pregnancy! Her workouts are customized to your needs and she understands the importance of having delicious and healthy meals that compliment her program, your growing baby (and appetite) or your desire to get back to your pre-baby weight. That being said, I was totally blown away by her Spicy Salmon recipe. The marinade is out of this world and I actual felt full after I finished eating, which doesn’t always happen with fish and veggies. The spice is pretty mild, so if you have a little that loves fish I give it a green light!
The salmon marinates for 4-24 hours, which means I can prep it the night before and then pop it in the oven when I get home from work. As someone who wants to eat healthy but doesn’t always feel like cooking after work, this recipe is exactly what I’ve been looking for! What’s your go-to after work recipe?
