If I’m eating limited starch, it’s a struggle to come up with interesting lunch options. Customize this concept to your liking and prep in advance, so you can throw it together when you’re ready to eat. Eating it for dinner? You may want to increase the salmon serving size to six ounces.

- Serves: 6
Prepare the Salmon and Spinach
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius).
Squeeze lemon or lime juice onto salmon fillets, then season with salt and pepper.
Cook for 12 minutes or until flaky.
Spray a nonstick frying pan with cooking spray and sauté garlic until fragrant.
Add spinach and season well with salt and pepper. Cook until wilted.
Place rice in the bottom, then add salmon, broccoli, avocado, garlic spinach, and baby corn.
Use a julienne peeler or a sharp knife to cut thin strips of cucumber and carrot and add to the bowls.
Mix soy sauce, mirin, honey, and ginger and drizzle over the bowls, then top with sesame seeds.
