Easy salmon and eggs brunch recipe

Hey guys! Today I wanted to share a recipe with you guys! I found this recipe on youtube and I thought some of my fellow salmon lovers would be interested in it! I love salmon and I wanted a breakfast recipe with salmon incorporated into it, so I guess this would be considered a brunch recipe considering salmon is more of a lunch or dinner meal.

This recipe is very easy and simple!

This is all you need:

6 oz of salmon (or however much salmon you would like)

6 eggs

Two teaspoons of cream (this optional, but it does give the eggs a nice rich texture)

A few sprigs of dill (also optional but it does give a nice flavour)

 

So what you guys have to do is:

1. Clean and cut the salmon into medium chunks.

2. On a low-medium heat, lightly fry the salmon, some people like to put some seasoning or salt and pepper on the salmon, but for this recipe, I don’t put any seasoning on it.

3. Cook the salmon for about five minutes, until it is an opaque colour.

4. When the salmon is almost fully cooked, add in the beaten eggs.

5. Scramble the eggs nicely, and when the eggs are a little cooked but still very moist, add a splash of cream and continue scrambling.

6. Stir in some dill!

 

Guys this recipe is so easy yet so delicious for a nice little brunch. I know smoked salmon is a bit more popular but this is a delicious twist!

Try this recipe if you’d like and let me know how you liked it in the comments or on my Instagram! Thanks again for reading guys!

Emotional health

Hi everyone! Today I wanted to talk about ways to ensure and heal your emotional health. Emotional health is just as important as mental, and physical health. These tips are things that I’ve learned throughout my life and that I’ve learned from other people. They may some obvious, but sometimes you just need to hear it.

1.  Cut out all the negative people in your life.

Guys, I can’t stress this enough. Cutting out negative people who bring you down creates a huge difference in your life. You’ll be surprised as to how much happier and freer you’ll feel. I know it’s hard but it will make you feel so much better

2.  Think positive

People who think negative thoughts are not going to have positive lives. When you change your thoughts, you change your life. Those who want different results, but are doing the same thing over and over again, are living in a world of insanity (I believe Albert Einstein said something along the same lines). If people truly realized the power of the brain, we would never want to think a negative thought again.

3.  Exercise

Exercise is not only good for your body, but it is good for your mind and soul. Exercising releases serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine which helps against the symptoms of stress and depression. Exercise is good for you overall and for every part of your well being.

I know these tips are simple guys but they change your life drastically. You’ll be surprised at how much better you feel about yourself and in general. Also, I am going to try to post at least once a week. Sorry for not posting as much, I will try to change that. Hope everyone had a great summer!

Plastic Straws

Hi everyone!

There is an issue that I would like to shine some light on, and that is the use of plastic straws.

There are so many reasons why we should decrease the usage of plastic straws and plastic bags. Million of tons of garbage and plastic is thrown into the ocean every year. It is like a garbage truck dumping garbage and plastic into the ocean every minute. There is so much plastic pollution in this world that scientists and researchers have said that in the year 2050, the weight of plastic will outweigh the weight of fish in the ocean.

We can’t burn plastic because burning it creates dangerous dioxide emissions that are very harmful to our health and the environment, so the best way to help stop the pollution of plastic is to stop the high demand for it. This will decrease the production of plastic.

There are small things that we can all do to help this environmental issue, and it will have a large positive impact if we all do our part.

One thing we can all do to help is say no to plastic straws at restaurants and fast food places. If we all do this it will have a tremendously positive impact on our environment. Another thing we can do is use eco-friendly straws such as bamboo straws, paper straws, steel straws, and glass straws. These options are much more eco-friendly. I would probably recommend the bamboo, steel, and glass straws more because they are more durable and reusable than the paper straws. The benefit of paper straws is that they are more easily recyclable than their plastic counterparts. So it’s each person’s preference.

 

It is so simple to give up plastic straws, but the benefits that the environment reaps from us doing so is amazing.

 

Thank you, everyone, for taking the time to read my post, I am going out of the country in a few weeks so I’ll be sure to take lots of pictures and show all of you guys the beauty of Asia 🙂

My five tips to becoming more eco-friendly

Hey everyone! As you guys get to know me, you will realize that one thing I am very passionate about is the environment! I love doing my part in helping the environment in any way that I can. I wanted to share a few easy tips with you guys so that you guys can see how easy it is to help the environment too! If everyone does small things to help the environment, we can make a huge difference, and make our beautiful earth as green and healthy as we possibly can! Here are five easy tips to be more eco-friendly:

 

  1. Recycle more!

Recycling is a very effective way to help the environment. So much paper and plastic products go to waste every day, many of these products can be reused and this causes less strain on the environment. In today’s day and age, many people can go days without using pieces of paper because most people are tech-savvy and use their phones and computers in replace of paper. If you absolutely have to use paper, please make sure to recycle! As for plastic water bottles, they are easily replaceable with reusable water bottles!

2. Get a compost bin!

Compost bins are a great way to help the environment and reduce your garbage! If you have a garden, compost bins are great to have, the waste in there is great for healthy soil! This a great tip for gardeners. Compost waste helps plants grow better and healthier.

3. Purchase eco-friendly light bulbs!

Next time you go out to buy light bulbs, buy eco-friendly light bulbs! Eco-friendly light bulbs (compact fluorescent lamps and light emitting diodes) use less energy and can last much longer (in many cases at least five times longer) than traditional light bulbs. By doing this you can reduce your carbon footprint by 450 pounds a year! This not only helps the environment, but it can also help your energy bill!

4. Take shorter showers!

Taking shorter showers can really help reduce overall water consumption, and therefore the environment! You can install a low-flow shower head which uses less water than a standard showerhead. Even taking showers that are just five minutes shorter than your average showers, can help immensely. This not only helps the environment but also reduces your water bill!

5. Plant trees and flowers!

This has got to be my favourite tip that I am giving you guys! Taking the time to plant a few flowers, plants, or a tree can do so much good for this world. In our world today, everything is run by the economy and making a profit, and in many cases, our environment has to pay the price. With many trees being cut down for various reasons, two of them being to make paper and cardboard as well as to make room to build houses and other buildings, it is damaging our environment. Planting trees has so many benefits, such as providing homes for birds, squirrels, and other small animals, as well as absorbing carbon dioxide and other harmful gases while releasing oxygen into the air. Planting plants such as flowers help bees, and right now especially this is very important because bee populations are declining, so planting some flowers in your garden would be a great start to helping the environment and the bees!

 

Thank you everyone so much for reading my five quick tips to being more eco-friendly! I learned these tips from people, the internet, as well as other helpful sources! Once again, I appreciate you all taking the time to read my post, and remember to take baby steps with being eco-friendly, you don’t have to all of this right away, but trying to incorporate these tips into your daily life would help the environment so much, so let’s all work together to make our beautiful planet green and healthy again 🙂 Thank you everyone!

 

International Women’s Day!

Hey everyone! In light of International women’s day a few days ago, I wanted to talk about what it’s like to be a woman in today’s society. I find it an honour to be a young woman in this world. I think women are faced with so many obstacles. I really do think women are the architects of society. We are mothers, daughter, sisters, cousins, friends, etc. Our maternal instinct takes care of the world. Although women have come along way over the centuries and decades, I still feel that we are not as respected as much as we should be. I have the utmost respect for good men in this world, the ones who do good in this world, are amazing fathers, husbands, brothers, friends, etc. But I still feel women should be respected for all that we do for this world. Like Beyonce once said, it is hard to believe how amazing women really are. The most amazing woman in my life is my mother, she has taught me everything I know and she is absolutely incredible. I encourage all of you to make sure you show how much you love all the special women in your lives, and if you are women to always know your worth. We all should embrace and empower each other because the world really would not spin around if it wasn’t for us. Thank you all for taking the time to read my post!
