Blackened Salmon, Green Beans Almondine, and Oven-Roasted Sweet Potatoes

#Blackened Salmon, Green Beans Almondine, and Oven-Roasted Sweet Potatoes

There are many reasons to add wild-caught salmon to your diet, apart from the delicious taste!

Salmon contains vitamin D and is a good source of protein and healthy fats, such as the anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids.

As a protein source salmon contains the essential amino acid tryptophan which is a precursor to niacin (vitamin B3) and serotonin (neurotransmitter) production in the body.

Eating salmon can increase your serotonin levels which can lead to improved mood, movement of the bowels, regulated sleep, regulated body temperature and also maintain proper pH levels of the blood.

Salmon bakes up quickly, so I put the sweet potatoes in the oven first while I prepared the rub for the salmon. I used smoked paprika, onion and garlic powder, turmeric, cumin, oregano, sea salt and black pepper for the rub. The green beans cooked on the stove top with a bit of butter, sea salt, pepper, slivered almonds, and lemon juice. And that was dinner in about 45 minutes.
