Do you ever find yourself liking a food better based on its color? I am a huge fan of all things Orange. So when I saw this salmon at the grocery store, I first noticed the amazing bright orange color, then I imagined how I would cook it. So it got me thinking, am I more motivated to buy food if it’s my favorite color? I have to say yes, I am drawn to colors I love, especially orange, I’m an Orange Eater.

Baked on 400 degrees for 20 minutes this salmon comes out flaky and moist. I seasoned with salt, pepper and olive oil.  I also had leftover quinoa and left over couscous, so I mixed them together for a side dish.

I also had a nice side salad to go with my salmon. I loaded it up with lots of veggies, avocados, cucumbers, chives, a sliced egg and some sunflower seeds. I was actually really full just from the salad.



Some of my favorite Orange foods are:

  • Sweet Potato
  • Apricots
  • Orange Bell Peppers
  • Squash
  • Mango’s
  • Pumpkin
  • Carrots
  • Oranges
Today is Week #3 for Boot Camp. It is gradually getting more intense. I really like the progression of the exercises, it has been very challenging. I have been able to complete all 3 sets of each exercise. I had this mental block in my head telling me I could not do all 3 sets and to just be happy with doing 2 sets. So it was nice to be able to silence that annoying voice in my head. Sometimes that voice can be a real “Debbie Downer”.
Hope the weekend treated you well.
