Vegetable + Fish = Recovery

It was a balmy 100 degrees with 80% humidity today in the District. Oh California, how I miss you. One problem with vacation is that you usually end up eating food you would not normally eat, which can really throw me off. By the end of the trip, I wasn’t feeling so hot and I think the unhealthy food was to blame (not that it wasn’t phenomenal at the time!). I got myself back on track the past few days with meals made of vegetables and fish. 
Tuesday night: Dijon salmon with spinach rice and corn on the cob

I’d never thought to add spinach to rice, but it tasted great.

1/2 cup rice (1 1/3 cup water +1/2 tbsp butter, cook for 20 min)
chopped frozen spinach (or fresh)

Tossed all together with hot, cooked rice.
