Blast from the past
I’m going to be uploading some recipes from an oldddd blog I had once upon a time in grad school. So, let’s kick it off with one of my favorites that I still come back to frequently: Breaded & Baked Salmon!
When I blogged during grad school, it was mostly a product of its time, if you will. A time when ‘what I ate Wednesday’ was popular and I personally hadn’t more about what would be triggering to others and that some behaviors were still considered ‘disordered.’
I look back at the blog now and it’s mostly just interesting to me. I don’t feel the need to try and eat that way now because I’m a different person now. I cook for a family now. I can’t just heat up some small meal for myself and that literally no one else in the house would like. In most ways, that has been good for me. It has made me branch out and try to eat things that I wouldn’t have before. Which in turn has made lots of foods less scary over time.
One thing I have really been thinking about as I work with my clients this week is the fact that recovery (from an ED or dieting) is not black and white. It’s not linear. There’s no ‘finish line.’
There’s growth. There’s healing. These things take time. Sometimes it takes lots of time.
And that’s okay.
It’s okay to take your time and heal slowly. Actually, (if you’re medically stable) I would probably encourage you to take it slowly. It can be overwhelming if you try to move too fast.
Where this baked salmon recipe orignated
My mother one law made this one time when we were visiting for the weekend and it has been one of our go-to baked salmon recipes since then. It can be served alongside dishes, on top of a salad, on pasta, or any way that you would like!
It’s seriously SO good and I know what you’re thinking. Why mayonnaise, right? I would have never thought if it either honestly, but it just adds something special to the texture and flavor of this recipe. Give it a shot!
