Wild King Salmon with Roasted Cauliflower & Carrot Vegan Mac N’ Cheese and Sauteed Zucchini​

OK, I actually outdid myself here. This was something I randomly dreamed up in my head over the weekend, probably drawing inspiration from a few sources around the interwebs (although a quick google search never provided any actual recipes for this).

Wild King Salmon Bowl with Quinoa, Sweet Potato, and a Vegan Kale Caesar

You all know how much I adore my local fish shop Wabash Seafood Company, one because they have this sustainability mission statement and because their product is just so dang good you can't mess it up! This meal is the epitome of how I think I want to eat going forward, although this is a [...]
