Have you ever heard of Copper River Salmon?

The Copper River Salmon organization fishes the pristine Copper River in Alaska for a few months every year, then ships it all over the country to excited chefs and the guys at the seafood counters. The salmon is some of the best I’ve ever had – full of flavor, gorgeous color and many milligrams of those amazing omega-3 fatty acids!

This year, I’ve partnered with the Copper River Salmon team to track down and locate the stores and restaurants where you can find the prized Copper River Salmon.

Last week I received the first shipment of salmon, so we’ve been eating lots of fresh salmon. It has been absolutely heavenly – I feel so spoiled!

We’ve been keeping things pretty simple and enjoying…

  • Butter Roasted Salmon from Mark Bittman (butter + salt + pepper in the oven)
  • Salmon Ceasar Salads + Avocado Dressing from Laurens Latest
  • Salad Greens + Miso Asian Dressing + Salmon + Fried Egg (sounds crazy, tasted amazing)

 

So head out to your local stores and restaurants and get some Copper River Salmon while it is here! I promise you’ll thank me. Be sure to let me know where you find it and you can upload it, or I’ll upload the locations for you.

chicken field salad {trader joe’s inspired}

I’m pretty sure I’ve tried 98% of the items at Trader Joe’s. I mean, it is just too convenient. It is across from the yoga/spinning studio that I belong to. There are three of them within walking distance of our apartment. And they are absolutely everywhere here in Los Angeles. So I’ve been doing most of

simple & healthy: stir-fry

Stir-frys are always a great choice for simple and healthy meals that come together in minutes. In fact, usually the rice takes longer to make than the stir-fry itself. If you are short on time, consider trying frozen brown rice or instant brown rice. (You can also make your own brown rice in large batches

I can’t give up avocados. Not just yet. Last week my life changed with a simple little sandwich of whole grain bread + avocado + parmesan – broiled and topped with a fried egg. Thanks to reader Kelli for the suggestion – it is a combination worth trying! But as much as I loved that sandwich,

  The latest natural food trends have always intrigued me, but since working in the natural food business, they are also something that I needed to stay on top of. It is one of the reasons why I prefer to go to the store alone – then I can spend all of the time I want wandering
