Healthy meals by my roommate {salmon croquettes + chicken stir fry}

I'm working on my next clean eating post, but in the meantime I wanted to share two healthy meals my roommate made! Salmon Croquettes (a healthy version) and a Chicken Stir Fry Dish with veggies!

Skinny Salmon Croquettes

1 can of boneless salmon
5 chopped green onions/chives
1 egg
 1 teaspoon of baking powder
Black pepper
Garlic powder
2 pieces of bread

Drain the can of salmon (save half of the juice in a small bowl)
Put salmon in a bowl and mix with egg, then stir it up
In a separate bowl: mix the saved salmon juice & baking powder until it gets foamy
Then add the salmon juice & baking powder to the bowl with the salmon

Bread crumbs
Break up wheat bread into tiny pieces and put it on a tray sprayed with olive oil
Sprinkle garlic powder and dried onions onto bread pieces
Bake in oven for 10 min. on 350 (until hard)
Salmon mixture  and form into patties

Add the bread crumbs to the salmon mixture without making bread crumbs too soggy
Put olive oil in skillet
Take patty size amounts of mixture and fry in skillet
Flip over and cook until browned


My roommate and I both make ground chicken dishes all of the time. They're quick, can consist of just about anything, and can be added to so many other foods (pasta, wraps, salads, side dishes, fruit).

1 pack of ground chicken
1/2 pack of Mushrooms
1/2 cup of broccoli
1/2 purple onion
1 orange pepper
1 zucchini 
Black pepper
Curry powder
Olive oil

Add olive oil to the skillet
Add in onions then other vegetables
Sprinkle ground chicken with cayenne, black pepper, and curry powder
Add in the seasoned chicken and mix with the vegetables
Stir and break apart the chicken
Cook until cooked

My roommate added the chicken stir fry to a
whole wheat wrap with some spinach and Chipotle sauce, yum!


  1. This looks so delicious! To me, I think the salmon croquettes look more delicious :3

  2. That wrap!!! It looks so yummy! I definitely want to try my hand at some croquettes. The toasted bread bits sounds so good!

  3. I LOOOOOVE salmon croquettes!
    I have some on the menu for next week!

  4. I'm leaning more toward the salmon croquette, just because I LOVE them so much, they are one of my favorite breakfast foods. It didn't occur to me that it could be considered clean eating, so that's awesome!

  5. The salmon looks delish!!! Have a great weekend Vett!

  6. Hello from Spain: very tasty. Keep in touch

  7. Yum these look soo good! I'm eating Paleo for a month and absolutely dying right now.

  8. Mmmm! I'm gonna have to try those salmon croquettes!
