Salmon Cakes with Fennel and Parsnips Recipe

For the vegetables:
½ cup fennel, shaved thin (use a mandolin slicer for thinnest slices)
¼ cup parsnips, shaved
½ Tbsp coconut oil

For the salmon cakes:
6 oz can boneless, skinless, wild-caught salmon, drained
1 egg
1 Tbsp quinoa flakes
1 Tbsp fresh chives, chopped
1 tsp capers
1 tsp lemon juice
½ Tbsp coconut oil, for frying
4 radishes with greens

Heat oil in a skillet and sauté fennel and parsnips until tender, about 7 minutes. Remove to serving plate.

In a mixing bowl, combine salmon, egg, quinoa flakes, chives, capers and lemon juice. Stir to mix until most of the large chunks of salmon are broken down.

Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat, form salmon mixture into 2 patties and cook 4 minutes per side.

Place salmon cakes over fennel and parsnips and garnish with radishes. Serve warm.

Healthy Ways To Spend Time At Home
Global Brief: Natural Thinking Spending Time in Nature Increases Cognitive Performance
More of our time is spent indoors than ever before. One of the ways by which nature may improve cognitive function (i.e. the acquisition of and goal-oriented use of knowledge) is by improving memory formation and recall, specifically that of short-term or working memory, and goal-oriented or directed attention; the kind that requires focused effort. By comparing and contrasting 13 studies, a team of researchers has shed light on this complex interaction in research published in Frontiers in Psychology. The studies used the backwards digit span task, which requires participants to invert a series of numbers and repeat them back. All demonstrated significantly improved cognition in nature as compared to urban environments. The benefits of studies like this are two-fold: not only are we learning more about how the brain interacts with its environment, but also how to leverage this interaction to lead healthier, more productive and happier lives.
