Eating healthy can be so challenging. As we looked at the menu to order our lunch, I really wanted to get a BLT or Margherita pizza, but since moving back to America I know I have consumed way too many carbs and it is beginning to show. Old Soul Co. in Sacramento is a popular café that also serves food and pastries. Their salad selection looked pretty good, so I opted for the poppy seed salmon salad.
I didn’t think it would be bad, but anytime you order a salad when you really want pizza you can only be so excited, right? So, I waited as patiently as I could. By the way, I was starving because it was 12:30 and I hadn’t eaten anything all day. Smart!
About 15 minutes passed and our food came. I was impressed with the presentation and was even more impressed by how delicious this salad was. Since it is so simple, I want to recreate the recipe on my blog so we can all enjoy this poppy seed salmon salad for many lunches to come!

Did you know?
Spinach is a leafy green vegetable that is high in protein and fiber. It is a great source of many vitamins and minerals, such as Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K1, Folic Acid, Iron, and Calcium. This means that spinach is good for your immune system, skin health, cell growth, blood clotting and health, and bone health. So many fantastic benefits, right?!
Strawberries are a great source of vitamin C and rich in antioxidants, which promotes heart health and blood sugar control.
Feta cheese is a low-calorie, low-fat cheese that is rich in calcium. It is considered a Greek cheese because it is made from sheep and goats’ milk.
Salmon (like most fish) is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential to our health. They are also a great source of protein, vitamin B, and potassium. It can help reduce the risk of heart disease, so next time you are thinking of ordering the steak maybe consider a nice grilled salmon over asparagus?!
