This week’s post for a #MacroFriendlyMondays isn’t so much a recipe as it is a quick and easy meal or snack idea (#MinimalistMealPrep). This has been my go-to breakfast when I’m feeling snacky, rather than wanting a full meal.
You can customize to meet your macro needs by splitting either 1 or 2 ounces of smoked salmon on 2 rice cakes (or double if you want 4 cakes for a larger meal). I really love the combo of buttered popcorn rice cakes, but plain salted rice cakes are great as well! Shout out to @Kelseyjfit who mentioned that shipping was free on Walmart orders of $35 or more, because I cannot find buttered popcorn flavored rice cakes anywhere locally. However, Walmart online ships them right to my door and it usually only takes two days! The price for buying several packs wasn’t even as good on Amazon when I checked.
Publix sells two kinds of smoked salmon I like (trust me when I say they are not all created equal 😜). See below for my favorites and the macros on each, as well as the macros on the rice cakes. I think the cracked pepper garlic is my favorite of the two, but they are both excellent!
PSA: While I use macro tracking as a starting point with some of my clients, my #MacroFriendly posts can be used as as ideas for those who use a #MindfulMacros approach (AKA not tracking, but structuring meals based on how their body responds best to protein, carbs, and fat) as well. This is the goal place for some to reach after they learn the ropes by tracking for a period of time. For some of my clients who don’t want to track for one reason or another, we start with the mindful macros approach. Remember, there is no right or wrong way to find your forever way to eat!
1/ What’s your favorite way to eat smoked salmon?
2/ How do you top your rice cakes?
P.S. You can also email me if you think you might want to work together! We can set up a free discovery call! The goal of my coaching is to get you to a place where you no longer need a coach.

P.P.S. I will be increasing my 1:1 coaching prices after I have my new #Moderation365 certification. Current clients will be grandfathered in at their current rate as long as they don’t lapse, but for those who are wanting to enroll as a new client, I would do so now if you are on the fence!
