My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is truly a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and enjoying adequate exercise. By experimenting in the kitchen and openly sharing my meals, I learned that healthy eating is hardly boring and that by making a few adjustments, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my personal fitness goals. Our bodies are built in the kitchen and sculpted in the gym.

Even though I keep my diet interesting, I never get rid of simple food favorites like this easy smoked salmon bowl.  It’s packed with heart healthy energy to either help me conquer the day first thing in the morning, or help me recover from an immensely busy day and/or grueling workout.

Heart Healthy Abundance = Solid protein from salmon and edamame + complex carbohydrates from brown rice (and edamame) + healthy fats from salmon and sesame.

If you’re on a sodium restricted diet, then I recommend either purchasing wild salmon and smoking it on the grill or with a smoking gun; or, simply reducing the portion size of smoked salmon while also enjoying it occasionally.
