Hormone-Balancing Dinner Recipe for Busy Mums

Posted by Riannon Page on

Mums, we know how crazy life can be! That's why we've created this quick and easy one-pan dinner recipe, perfect for those days when you're short on time but still want a healthy, delicious meal. This hormone-balancing meal is packed with omega-3 fatty acids, complex carbohydrates, and fibre to support optimal women's health.

(Serves 2)

Ingredients:

  • 2 salmon fillets (preferably wild-caught)
  • 1 large sweet potato, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 head of broccoli, cut into bite-sized florets (or other vegetables of choice)
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Seasoning of choice (e.g., lemon zest, cumin, garlic powder, mustard, etc.)
  • Lemon wedges and fresh herbs (such as parsley or dill) for serving.

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C).
  2. In a large baking tray, toss the sweet potato cubes with 1 tbsp of olive oil, salt, pepper, and paprika. Spread them evenly across the tray and bake for 15 minutes.
  3. While the sweet potatoes are baking, prepare the remaining ingredients. Chop the broccoli into evenly sized florets and season the salmon fillets with salt, pepper, and your choice of additional seasonings.
  4. After 15 minutes, carefully remove the baking tray from the oven. Push the partially cooked sweet potatoes to one side of the tray. Arrange the seasoned salmon fillets in the middle and the broccoli florets on the other side. Drizzle the remaining 1 tbsp of olive oil over the salmon and broccoli.
  5. Return the tray to the oven and bake for an additional 15 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through and the broccoli is tender.
  6. Remove the tray from the oven and transfer the salmon, sweet potatoes, and broccoli to serving plates. Garnish with lemon wedges and fresh herbs.
  7. Enjoy your hormone-balancing omega-3 sheet pan dinner!

 

Pro Tip: To boost the omega-3 content even more, consider crumbing the salmon with some walnuts, pistachio or adding pine nuts over the salmon and vegetables before baking.
