Since we’re nearing the end of January, we’re going to guess that many of you (Team Rue included) have given up on those healthy eating resolutions. The first 2 weeks were great — green juice and lean proteins galore! — but then it was the NFL playoffs, or The Bachelor on Monday nights, and pizza + wine won every time.

But, nutritionist Jennie Miremadi – our health queen! — has found a way to make even the leanest, cleanest, and greenest meals taste amazing. She makes healthy eating seem approachable and enticing. Today, Jennie is sharing a recipe that will totally obliterate the idea of takeout tonight. With a creamy mustard caper sauce, this salmon dish feels really indulgent.
