      Let’s take a look at the main ingredients: 

      • Salmon
      • Butter
      • Garlic 
      • Vegetables

      Salmon, garlic, and vegetables are all natural, nutritious food sources. Each have their own list of health benefits. Pair them together, and you’ve got a powerhouse of a meal. 

      But what about butter? Is dairy healthy?

      Here’s what we know. Dairy is full of vitamins, minerals, protein, and natural fat energy. But if everyone consumed dairy all of the time, dairy farming would become abusive and unsustainable…

      Let’s be mindful of our dairy intake. Buy dairy that comes from pasture raised cows and try to eat less.

      Baked Lemon Garlic Salmon! Healthy Gluten Free Dinner.

      1. Add sides

      Thanks to the inclusion of veggies, this recipe can be served as a complete meal on its own. However, it also pairs well with sides like hidden veggie pasta, healthier mac and cheese, and low carb dinner rolls

      2. Store leftovers

      Go ahead and make an extra batch! This recipe stores well, meaning it’s great for meal prep. Once cooked and cooled, leftovers can be transferred to an airtight container and stored in the fridge for up to 5 days. 

      3. Switch up the veggies

      Feel free to mix and match any veggies you have on hand and like best! For the best results, we recommend using ingredients with similar baking times to prevent them from being over or undercooked. 

      4. Have leftover salmon? 

      Store it in the freezer for another day. Or, use it to make cucumber sweet pepper salad with air fried salmon or healthy salmon sushi waffles, and enjoy the health benefits of this nutritious fish all week.
