Corkscrew Pasta with Wild Caught Alaskan Salmon

After my workouts, I often find myself needing a carb fix. One of my favorite dinner treats is a really tasty and healthy Organic Whole Wheat pasta with Flax, sometimes vegetarian, but most times with either canned or fresh Wild Caught Alaskan salmon. Yum Yum. As I say a gazillion times, I never sacrifice nutrition for taste or vice versa, I have learned how to have both. My homemade salad dressing really makes this a great meal.

Like I always say, "don't be afraid of fat", or shall I say "healthy fats"; they are as necessary for nutritional health and balance in the body as is healthy protein and healthy carbs, so I can add as much of my full fat homemade salad dressing as I want without any worry or guilt, or most importantly, no worry of adding inches onto the waist.

 

I found this really good corkscrew pasta called Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Pasta, with Milled Flax. A very good way to get the health benefits into my system, but this is for whatever reason my favorite tasting pasta out there. I purchase it off Amazon where I can get a box of 8 for under $13. As a side note, the time has come for me to go Gluten-free, and I am currently looking for a good gluten free pasta.

I love this treat because it is so quick and simple to make, especially during week when you may not want to spend a lot of time cooking, especially after an evening workout when you really just want to get some healthy, satisfying nutrition in you, to replenish your system. Most times I like to add my Alaskan Wild Caught Salmon, my favorite salmon is a company called Vital Choice which has some of the best salmon you will ever run across. Even their canned salmon will blow you away. When you open a can of their sockeye, you will see the salmon oil as a deep deep orange, as opposed to most other store bought cans of salmon whose oils rarely have that deep color. Their salmon is not cheap, but it is head and shoulders above any other canned salmon I have run across. When I am in the mood for cooking, I will broil some salmon to top off this delicacy, but most times I opt for the can to keep it quick.

Anyhoo, as I said, this is simple treat, I simply boil my pasta, normally I will dice up some garlic, fennel, and some scallions to top it off. I use my homemade salad dressing that I can use liberally to top off this creation. I also make enough to take to lunch the next day at work, it makes for a very good lunch, the nutrition of it keeps me full and nourished in the afternoon, and I never get that "2 o'clock blues" that everyone else seems to get from their lunches.~dw~
