Meal Planning for after the holiday bustle: Pineapple Salmon Teriyaki
The largest days of the holiday season are in the tail end and yet our families or ourselves still need meals to sustain themselves, who knew? Enter an easy quick meal when one is finished with eating an array of the holiday foods and looking at all those new year's goals in terms of fitness and healthier eating fast approaching. This one can be served with some roasted veggies and brown rice or even a noodle of sorts. It's a weekday staple in our house and my 4 year old's favorite meal.
