It has been a little while since I've updated on here, but it has been (as usual) a busy time!
I am just about halfway through my dietetic internship, which is sort of insane. It honestly feels like I just started but looking back, I have already learned so much. Kinda awesome.
One of the cool things about being a dietitian is that there are so many different specialities or areas you can go into. And with each one, there tends to be a specific emphasis on one or a few different nutrients that a person either has to limit or increase their intake of.
This has also allowed me to learn so much about these different nutrients, which helps remind me to add some more variety to my diet.
Also, it's kind of expensive sometimes. However, I am trying to add it more into my diet and I think you should too (if it is something you love, that is!)
So I decided to try making some salmon burgers, but instead of using fresh salmon, I used canned salmon.
That's right, canned salmon.
Ok, I know it sounds kind of weird but then I thought about it, and it is not much different than eating canned tuna.
However, these tasted AMAZING, canned salmon and all.
I also used oatmeal instead of the traditional bread crumbs. I wish I thought of that incredible idea on my own, but I can't take credit. However, I am so glad someone told me that because, like I said, it was incredible.
So this burger is not only lean, great protein with healthy fats, but it also has a little extra goodness from oatmeal. 100% Love&Grub approved.
So without further ado, let's get cooking!
