Another one bites the dust. Well, in this case, it’s me… two kids came down with a viral infection, and just a few days later I started showing the same signs. Did I mention that we are supposed to be in Austin, Texas right now getting ready for my sister in law’s wedding? Instead, we are taking off a day later in hopes that the family will perk up including me.

This past week I was able to work from home one day and for lunch, I turned my attentionon to a healthy, low carb meal. This salmon dish takes 5 minutes to prepare and 25 minutes in the oven.

  1. omg I hope you get better ASAP so you can head off to the wedding!! I neverrrr get sick and woke up feeling so gross today; obviously on a Friday! In any event, this salmon is so up my alley! Such a great weeknight dinner!

  2. Hello there, I just stumbled upon this recipe on pinterest and my first thought was “mmmmh”, but my second was “Lemon and aluminium foil??!!”
    As far as I know it’s very unhealthy to use aluminium foil (never good to use it if you are environmentally friendly) with acid foods. It kind of dissolves the aluminium an leads it into the body. Like the one used in deodorants it can harm you in many ways.
    You might want to use parchment paper or something.

    Best regards from Germany!
