Recipe Review – Cashew Salmon with Apricot Couscous (Eating Well)
Posted Mar 17 2009 6:18am
How great it is to have a buddy around the house who shares my passion for healthy eating! Not only that, but she planned and prepared this fantastic meal yesterday from the latest Eating Well Magazine “ Cashew Salmon with Apricot Couscous ”
She had it all prepped when I got home from work and before we got to the cooking part, the two of us strapped up the Lu-ster and head off for some exercise beforehand. I walked and she went for a run and then looped up with me later on to walk the rest of the way home. It was still chilly but a lovely night for some fresh air and some exercise. It was a 55 minute walk and my HRM calculated I burned about 260 cals. It felt great and since I hadn’t done any exercise in a while, my legs felt stiff (I miss that feeling!)
So after we got back home, Brooke fired up the stove and Voila!
