RECIPE OF THE WEEK
There's something undeniably delicious about bagels and lox. Unfortunately, it's not exactly the best meal to help achieve your fitness and wellness goals. So with this dish, I wanted to give you all the same flavors of that nostalgic breakfast dish in a form that is healthy and satisfying to eat at any time of the day.
This dish features fresh salmon that we hot smoke with pecan wood and season with the spices of everything bagel. Served with a hearty farro (or quinoa for gluten-free members), a coconut-caper yogurt sauce, and a bright cucumber and lemon salad, I think you'll really enjoy this rendition of the classic.
