Panko Lime Salmon Patties

As most of you know I am on a weight loss journey, and let’s be honest sometimes it is a struggle to introduce new foods into your diet, let alone foods you are not a big fan of. Me and Salmon aren’t the best of friends. I don’t know if it’s the fact that it was my Paw Paw’s favorite meal, and growing up I felt like I ate it at least once a week, or the fact that I went to a really fancy restaurant one time and my hillbilly ass ordered “Salmon” and it came out still swimming. So, we have a love hate relationship.

However, I was bound and determined to introduce it back into my diet. So, I took an old family recipe and threw a little twist on it, and holy mother of Salmon Patties. These bad boy are GOOD. I may have had one for lunch and dinner. Oops. I promise you can not go wrong with these, and at only 240 calories per patty, uh yea sign me up! You can even replace the Milk with low-fat Milk, substitute the salt and tartar sauce for an even healthier version!

So next time you are craving a burger, or fried seafood, give these a shot. Switch it up. You can thank me later! Check out the full recipe below. Be sure to share it. Leave a comment below and let me know what your favorite seafood recipe is. Maybe I will give it a shot next! Let me know if you give these a try. I think I may have them again this week. I’m reverting back to my childhood! Stay healthy y’all and be sure to find me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, and Snapchat to follow my weight loss journey!

Banana Bread Breakfast Shake

I don’t know about you all, but in the mornings I need easy, and I need on the go. Because school drop off waits for no one! Plus, as many of you know if you follow my blog, I am on a weight loss journey. So, I also need healthy. So this week I whipped up a new shake. I needed something I could just throw in my Ninja or my blender, pour, and run out of the house like a lunatic, throwing back packs, and screaming down the hall, ” did you put on clean underwear?”  Look at me like that’s not how your mornings go. Well this shake met all of those qualification. I wanted to share the recipe with you. In attempts to make your morning routine a little easier as well. I can’t promise all your kids will fall into single file out the door with brushed teeth and matching socks, but you will have a healthy shake in hand mom. What am I talking about my socks don’t match.
Let me know below if you plan to give this shake a try. There is a share button at the top and at the bottom of this post, click that bad boy and share it across social media, especially Pinterest (because, I worked really hard to make it look like I live in a Pinterest house, when I took the photo.) Y’all know the truth. That is one of those highlight reel photos, I tell ya about here. Yes, I just put a shameless plug, in my post about my own post. Don’t you judge me! Anyways, be sure to share with all the other mom out there with busy mornings. Have a terrific morning.
