When/Why

Such a fulfilling yet healthy dinner. Serving a seared salmon fillet encrusted with seasoning over a bed of fluffy and buttery Sweet Potato Mash, then topped with a little creamy parsley sauce – WINNER! Perfectly balanced with sautéed mushrooms and some crispy Asparagus cooked in Avocado Oil. Absolutely no absence of flavour, yet not a processed ingredient in sight. Moreover, if you dial the Sweet Potato volume down a little, you’d get a balanced plate in terms of macros.
