Grain free day today. It was going along swimmingly. Banana pudding for breakfast:
Greek yogurt for lunch with apple topping and flax meal.
Da latte and dried pineapple.
Extra snack of cashews, presented by Pixie.
Then along came dinner. In our meal planning we did on Sunday, we had 3 meals chosen. One of them was salmon patties. Long time readers know how I struggle with the fish. Fresh salmon has been okay, but John wanted a change. This recipe called for canned salmon. This was a big step for me. Canned tuna went off the menu after I got a scale in my mouth and that was probably a year ago since I last ate tuna? Anyhoo, this was a grain-free salmon patty that just called for 3 ingredients: unsweetened coconut, egg and a can of salmon.
Easy enough, right? I was just going to do a half batch. I actually was looking forward to trying these with a little triple ginger sauce to dip in.
Well, I opened up the salmon can and I see this:
Effing spinal vertebrae!! EWWWWWW!!! They were all attached in a little line, too, which made it somehow worse.
I know some people eat the bones. I just couldn’t do it. Not gonna happen. I don’t even want to pick these out. I covered the can and put it in the fridge. I guess Pixie will get a nice treat for meals this week. That put me off any canned fish probably forever.
So, it was to plan B, which is always an omelet. Overloaded on broccoli, but whose counting, right?
Much better. No bones.
