I made super easy Thai Salmon Burgers for you!
Canned fish alone is just nasty. There. I said it. But seriously — there are few things less appetizing to me than canned fish. When I was in Europe, I ate it because I needed protein and couldn’t really just whip out a kitchen when I needed one. It slightly ruined the European food experience for me. That, and I really super missed guac. The only thing worse than someone telling you guac is extra is not having guac there to be extra. And no one who speaks English who you can complain to.
Guac makes me proud to be an American.
You know what else I love about America? The size of our coffee cups. This is counterintuitive since I am trying to limit my caffeine to heal leaky gut, but theres literally nothing I love more than a large cup of super hot coffee. I’ll never forget how sad I was when I found that a “large” coffee in Europe was the size of a Starbucks tall. And also more expensive. Good, cheap coffee is where it’s at. Oh, I mean everything in moderation.
Speaking of things that are missing in places, how do you other Paleo people get enough carbs in? Long term I see myself going Keto, but right now I need to take baby steps with finally gaining some weight and healing before I try to add something as big and new as Keto into my life. I workout 6 days a week (crossfit style, usually) and I know my body needs more carbs than I was giving it previously. Its just so dang hard on strict Paleo diets, especially when you’re trying to be conservative with money. I eat soooo many sweet potatoes, I might as well move to a sweet potato farm and ask to be planted in a row. I don’t really want to do that, and I don’t want to turn to sugar and fruit, for obvious blood sugar and overall health reasons. So please, enlighten me — whats your favorite Paleo carb source?
It was always so much easier to make meal plans for people when I was a coach — doing it for myself is somehow way more challenging. I mean I can’t eat 284,239 things that I have to work around, but ya know. It just feels more like a logical equation when you’re making it for someone else. When it’s for you, it’s more like life, and life is not an easy equation. Is this making sense? No?
Maybe I shouldn’t write my blog posts late at night. Or maybe I should pause Ozark so I can think. HA! As if.
I don’t make sense — but these Thai Salmon Burgers absolutely do. Fatty fish is one of the few ways to get your Omega 3’s, which are important for staying alive and stuff. Plus, these burgers can be frozen, reheated for quick meals, and served literally any way you want. Boil em, mash em, stick em in a stew. Actually, those sound like the three ways you shouldn’t serve them. But whatever floats your boat, dude.
