Another fishy recipe ready for you today. Meal Prep Salmon Cucumber Chickpea Salad!

Fish is what I eat every day of the week for lunch. Contrary to what most people think, it’s SOOOOO convenient and easy to make. Toss it in a skillet or on a sheet pan and it bakes in seconds. You can even take frozen fish from the freezer toss it in a pan with some water and it bakes as if it were fresh. So many options!

Besides the fact that fish is sooooo easy to meal prep, it’s loaded with protein and good for you fat. Two things many people are missing in their diet! Fish is also heart healthy which is a big deal to me because of my family history. So, I’m always trying to add as much of this good stuff into my diet as possible.
