Honey Ginger Salmon — Fresh, wild caught salmon is something we don’t get to eat nearly as often as I’d like. Good quality salmon is considered a super food, and is highly recommended to improve heart health, blood pressure, and all sorts of other common health issues. Salmon is very high in fatty acids, especially Omega-3, which has recently been linked to ADHD issues in children. Studies show a lack of those fatty acids are often present in children who have behavior problems. And it just so happens that salmon is my very favorite fish. So I try to work into the menu whenever I can. It can seem like a splurge to put a meal like this on the table at times, but it’s truly worth every penny, and a small amount goes a long way. Learning to cook great meals at home is one of my favorite budget tips – when you have great recipes and ingredients at home you rarely feel the need to go to a restaurant to spend double the amount of money you would have spent on making the same dish at home in the first place. Wild caught Alaskan salmon is considered to be “in season” during the summer months so you can often find it on sale at that time. Make sure you always buy wild caught Alaskan salmon, not farmed – the wild version is much higher in Omega-3′s and other vitamins and minerals. Also make sure that no artificial coloring has been used to make the fish appear more pink.
