When I woke up and saw the sun shining in through the blinds, I couldn’t wait to kick off my day with a healthy bowl of cereal. When I finished, I wondered… Why stop there? So I grabbed my shoes, hat and shades, and hit the streets for a half-hour run around the park. After my run, my stomach started rumbling… And that’s when it happened…

Quickly kicking off my shoes, I rummaged through the fridge, eager to stick to my “healthy day”.  I found a packet of smoked salmon hidden behind the cheese, and got inspired. I was going to make a salmon sandwich, but not just any salmon sandwich… One of the healthiest, most delicious sandwiches I have ever made. I can’t wait to show you guys how to make it, and know you will enjoy it on your “healthy day”, whenever that may be!
