A fresh meal is easy to make on the grill or in the oven with skewered salmon. Add lemon, grapefruit, and dill to the mix for added flavors.

My family and I are always striving to live with a healthy philosophy about our food choices. The recipes today are a reflection of those choices. Our everyday diets are filled with lots of fruit and vegetables, healthy fats, natural sweeteners and lean meats.
Our mindfulness of what we put into our bodies allows us to stay active and nourished.
Let me share with you a few ideas that can easily be followed when you are capturing the spirit of spa cuisine in your own home.
Chose quality foods. Pamper yourself with a few favorites.
Avoid processed food. Stay with fresh ingredients.
Make spa water. Add a few mint leaves and lemon slices to dazzle your water intake for the day.
Use local ingredients when possible.
Relax. Close your eyes and clear your mind. Enjoy your food!
Spa food is not about limiting what you eat but reintroducing modifications to how you eat. Make choices that will feed your body, soul and mind. It is not about being this way or that way but more about feeling complete and whole.
I had left over pieces of salmon that were not suitable for skewering. I went ahead and grilled them anyways. I added the roasted dill and a wedge of lemon. It was perfect!Print
