Hello, my fabulous readers! Today, I’m going to share a recipe that was my seafood symphony during my gestational diabetes journey. It’s a dish that’s nutritious, flavorful, and absolutely delicious.

Let’s dive into the Salmon Rice Bowl! This dish is a harmonious blend of grilled salmon, brown rice, and a colorful array of veggies, all drizzled with a tangy vinaigrette. It’s a seafood symphony that’s perfect for a hearty lunch or a satisfying dinner.

When I was pregnant, I often found myself craving seafood, especially salmon. But with my gestational diabetes, I had to be careful about my food choices. That’s when I discovered the magic of the Salmon Rice Bowl. It was like a symphony of flavors in my mouth, and the best part? It was completely guilt-free! The balance of protein from the salmon, fiber from the brown rice, and vitamins from the veggies kept my blood sugar levels in check, while the variety of flavors and textures kept my taste buds dancing. It was a win-win situation!

This recipe was a lifesaver for me during my pregnancy. It's quick, it's easy, and it's packed with nutrients. Plus, it's customizable – you can add whatever veggies you have on hand. And let's be honest, who doesn't love a good rice bowl?



  1. Cook the brown rice according to the package instructions

  2. While the rice is cooking, season the salmon fillet with salt and pepper

  3. Heat a pan over medium heat, add a bit of oil, and cook the salmon until it's done to your liking

  4. In the same pan, sauté your veggies until they're tender

  5. Mix the cooked rice, salmon, and veggies in a bowl. Drizzle with soy sauce and sesame oil


After preparing the salmon rice bowl, store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator. The rice and salmon can be stored together or separately. When reheating, it's best to warm the rice and salmon separately to maintain their textures. You can enjoy the leftovers cold or reheat them in the microwave or oven until heated through.
