      1 cup diced tomatoes

      2 bay leaves

      Directions

      1. Saute garlic, onions and peppers in olive oil.

      2. Add sun-dried tomatoes, black olives, basil, oregano and pepper flakes. Stir and cook on medium heat for 2 minutes.

      3. Stir in fresh tomatoes and bay leaves. Cover pan with lid and simmer for about 20-30 minutes to create a sauce. 

      4. Slice salmon into serving sizes and season with salt and pepper. Take 1 tbsp of the sauce and drizzle over salmon.

      5. Place salmon in air fryer at 350 degrees for 8 minutes (for medium doneness). Alternatively, you can pan fry the salmon in a little olive oil.

      6. Cook fettuccine according to package instructions. Drain.

      7. Steam spinach until tender. Once done, season to taste and toss with butter.

      8. Serve by layering each serving with fettuccine first, spinach, salmon, then top with the rest of the sauce. Enjoy!

       

      Until next time, may your life be filled with joy and color!

      Colorful Eats: My Healthy Energy Blast Smoothie Recipe

      Colorful Eats: My Healthy Energy Blast Smoothie Recipe - JulRe Designs LLC

      I am a Smoothie Queen.

      Yes, I have anointed myself and I don't wear my title lightly. I have been a smoothie devotee since well before they became trendy and have enjoyed not only the incredible health benefits and the convenience of getting a few servings of necessary fruits and green vegetables in a small number of sips but also the vast number of vibrant color-filled food combinations you can use to make these multi-benefit drinks. I have the pleasure of drinking one almost every day of the year.

      The Healthy Smoothie Bible has been a source of creative ingredient inspiration for a few years. With over 100 recipes, you're sure to find a smoothie for almost every meal plan or occasion. The book also inspired me to come up with my own smoothie recipe that I whip up in minutes in my trusty Vitamix Blender for a blast of energy first thing in the morning or in the afternoon to beat that 3 PM fade. As a bonus, I include some nourishing ingredients that may be beneficial for my skin. Try my quick and easy Energy Blast Smoothie recipe below or be a Smoothie Visionary and create colorful combinations to suit your own taste and/or health needs:
