Honey “Mustard” Salmon & Veggie Sheet Pan Meal (gluten/nightshade free $ AIP/paleo)
I must confess something...
I HATE mustard!
Like I cannot even stand the smell of it haha So when KC Naturals came out with an imitation mustard for us AIP folk, I wasn't the least bit interested. But I realize that I am a rarity in my distain for mustard so I thought I would give it a shot for you guys! And man was I pleasantly surprised and knocked off my feet with how TASTY this stuff is! Not only did it make the perfect marinade for this salmon sheet pan meal but it was also delicious as a light dressing over the veggies. I can't say that it will quench your cravings for the real deal mustard but you definetely have to try this gem of a sauce out!
This recipe is nutrient dense, Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) friendly, lower carb, grain free, gluten free, dairy free, nut free, egg free, nightshade free, paleo, & primal!
$ What Makes this High-Vibing Food?
First and foremost, putting your own love, gratitude, time and energy into making foods at home will automatically raise the vibration of the foods/meal. This will also help to balance your sacral and heart chakras. Putting your love into the food you prepare will literally raise the vibrational frequency as love is the highest vibration out there!
You are what you eat and what your food eats. Using organic, GMO free, free/pasture raised, wild caught, minimally processed ingredients lead to an overall higher vibrational frequency. Basically, eating organic provides us extra energy currency!
This dish is rich in protein, which is grounding and protective. It also supports the root chakra.

$ A Short Note on Swaps or Ingredients:
*While I cannot guarantee that using these swaps will yield the same flavors I have create in this recipe, these swaps should generally work well! *
Use the KC Naturals imitation mustard sauce if you're sensitive or avoiding nightshades or on the strict phase of the AIP. But if you're able to tolerate nightshades, you can make a real honey mustard sauce by combining the following until it is smooth and incorporated: ⅓ cup dijon mustard + 1 tbsp. honey + ½ tsp. garlic granules.
Feel free to use whatever color of carrot that you would like. The purple carrots are higher in antioxidants but, flavor wise, the colors are interchangeable.
