Sundays are my favorite day for self-care and self-love! I love to take walks on Sunday mornings. It’s so peaceful, and as we move into Spring the weather is perfect! So I usually take a walk for about an hour and then grab a protein smoothie. Head to the grocery store to get what I need to cook and meal prep for the week. I’m slowly getting back into being consistent with this. I’m starting to enjoy cooking for myself more and more. So once I return, I get comfortable and do a little cleaning before cooking. Sunday’s are usually my day to try cooking something new!

So this week I went for Tuscan Butter Salmon. OMG, this turned out amazing, the best salmon I have ever made!! I added the recipe below from Pinterest, via I also got some kale and spinach to make a salad. After I’m done cooking and eating I start planning my week. I picked up a digital detox journal recently, from Home Goods. So lately I spend a few mins journaling each day and I think its great to get thoughts and feels out on paper. For me personally, it helps me stay free from the emotions. I’ve been trying to change some of my habits and how I spend my time. Self Care Sunday’s are needed. I hope you dedicate at least one day of the week to yourself and everything you enjoy!

2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
4 (6-oz) salmon fillets, patted dry with paper towels
kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
3 tbsp. unsalted butter
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 c. halved cherry tomatoes
2 c. baby spinach
1/2 c. heavy cream
1/4 c. Parmesan
1/4 c. chopped herbs (such as basil and parsley), plus more for garnish
Lemon wedges, for serving (optional)
  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil. Season salmon all over with salt and pepper. When oil is shimmering but not smoking, add salmon skin-side up and cook until deeply golden, about 6 minutes. Flip over and cook 2 minutes more. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Reduce heat to medium and add butter. When butter has melted, stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add cherry tomatoes and season with salt and pepper. Cook until tomatoes are beginning to burst then add spinach and cook until spinach is beginning to wilt.
  3. Stir in heavy cream, parmesan, and herbs and bring mixture to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and simmer until sauce is slightly reduced, about 3 minutes.
  4. Return salmon back to skillet and spoon over sauce. Simmer until salmon is cooked through, about 3 minutes more.
  5. Garnish with more herbs and squeeze lemon on top before serving.
