Hunger-Fighting Avocado Salmon Salad And Homemade Blueberry Banana Yogurt

I have been sitting around the apartment waiting for my boyfriend to bring home some groceries for about 3 hours, but he still hasn’t shown. I’m guessing his training is running a little long, so I finally gave in to the roaring starving monster that has been screaming in my belly.

I didn’t want to have too big of a meal, though, as I am sure my boyfriend will want to have dinner later. My rhythm is a bit off, eating-wise. Sleeping in every day results in having breakfast much later than usual, hence my having lunch at…uhm…4.30 pm. 🙂

As I’ve told you in my previous post, I am craving some lighter food after the heavy-dinner holidays, so  I made myself a nice little salad with romaine lettuce, creamy avocado dice, smoked salmon, and a bit of cucumber. Sprinkle a bit of salt and pepper on top, and squeeze a lemon slice over the bunch – it’s a perfect mix, quickly whipped up and perfect for a light in-between-meal.

The healthy fat of the avocado coupled with the protein- and omega-rich salmon will fill you up, with the fat-burner lemon juice giving this dish the extra kick!

I wasn’t quite filled after, so I blended some blueberries with 1 banana, and stirred in 1 1/2 Tbs. of soy yogurt into the mixture:

Ingredients:

  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1-2 Tbs. soy yogurt (optional, however, without it, this will be extremely sweet!)

Procedure:

1. Blend the banana and blueberries together until you have a very thick smoothie-like mixture.

2. Stir in the soy yogurt until you have a nice pattern (see picture above).

3. Decorate with a few frozen blueberries and enjoy your healthy, homemade yogurt!

Obviously, this would work well for breakfast with some granola (for example my freshly made super seedy granola), or as a dessert with some coconut whipped cream instead of soy yogurt. Be creative, and enjoy the vitamin-kick you’ll get out of these two dishes!
