This recipe features fresh or frozen salmon with spiralized zucchini noodles, tiny tomatoes, and corn all tossed with your choice of homemade or prepared pesto. This delicious dish is elegant enough for company but easy enough for weeknight supper!
Spiralize the zucchini. Add to a large mixing bowl.
Add the corn and tomatoes, and 2 tablespoons of the pesto. Season with a tiny amount of salt and fresh ground pepper. Toss thoroughly to combine.
Rub the remaining tablespoon of pesto on the salmon. Season lightly if desired.
Using tongs, add half the vegetable mixture to the center of the parchment paper. Top with a salmon fillet. Fold in edges of parchment to create a little envelope – or, if you have it, use parchment paper bags and roll down the top. Place on baking sheet in the preheated oven.
Cook 15 minutes. Open one bag if uncertain to check for doneness
Cut an X on the top side of the bag, and using a large spatula lift the contents on to a plate. Pour any accumulated juice over the top.
Garnish as desired with lemon slices, basil, and toasted pinions. Enjoy!

February is the month of love, and this includes showing yourself a little affection by adopting lifestyle habits that keep your heart healthy and going strong. The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends adopting healthy eating habits, 150 minutes of moderate physical activity every week, and maintaining a healthy weight as guidelines. Heart-healthy eating habits include choosing fruits and vegetables at every meal and snack, adding in nuts and legumes, opting for vegetable oils and lean proteins, and consuming more whole grains.
Seafood Helps Keep Your Heart Healthy
The AHA also recommends eating non-fried fish and seafood more frequently, ideally two times a week. Buehler’s is here to help you achieve this goal, offering a variety of fresh, frozen, and canned options throughout our stores. Consider these Healthy Living tips to add more seafood to your weekly recipe routines:
Try a new take on family favorites. Seafood fits perfectly into your family’s favorite meals. Try salmon burgers, shrimp stir fry, or shrimp tacos. Add canned tuna to a Caesar salad.
Seafood at breakfast? Crab and old bay seasoning are amazing in scrambled eggs. Try leftover salmon, pesto, and goat cheese in a Sunday morning frittata.
Opt for high omega-3 options. Certain types of fat, called omega-3s, are known to positively impact heart health. The best sources of omega-3s are fish like mackerel, trout, tuna, salmon, sardines, anchovies or pollock and shellfish including oysters, crab and mussels.
Use lean cooking methods. Grilling, baking and broiling are cooking methods that keep fish and seafood lean and aligned with heart-healthy eating habits. If Santa dropped an air fryer under your tree this year, you might want to try our Air Fryer Sweet and Sour Salmon recipe as this kitchen appliance is a great method for lean cooking.
Heart disease is 80-90% preventable with a combination of healthy eating habits, exercise and maintaining a healthy weight. Buehler’s is here to help you achieve heart health with tasty products found in all our food departments.

The human body is host to tens of trillions of microbes and the largest population of these live in the gut – our gut microbiota. The right balance of these healthy bacteria is vital to feeling your best every day. As studies on the microbiota expand, we are learning how closely gut health can influence our metabolism, immune system, cholesterol levels, and possibly brain functions.
The good news is there are lifestyle changes we can make that will help promote a healthy gut and improve our overall wellbeing. Understanding the effects that poor eating habits, lack of sleep and stress have on our gut health can empower us to take action and give ourselves a serious gut check. Here are 5 daily habits than can enhance the health of your gut:
Make fiber your friend
Make sure to eat high fiber foods at every meal. While all fiber is important for digestive balance, prebiotics are certain fibers that feed the healthy bacteria in your gut. Sources of prebiotics include onions, garlic, leeks, asparagus, soybeans, apples, bananas, beans, and lentils, oats, flax seed and wheat bran.Follow these tips to ensure you consume plenty of prebiotics:
Incorporate prebiotic fruits and vegetables into daily meals.
Add ground flax and wheat bran when baking.
Incorporate 3 cups of beans into your meals each week. Try black bean tacos, lentil/bean soup, or chili with kidney beans.
Note: Adding more fiber to your diet may cause some initial gastric distress. To minimize this, gradually increase your fiber intake.
Add powerful probiotics to your meals
Probiotics, the healthy bacteria that live in your gut, can be consumed in certain foods. Choose fermented foods like yogurt, kefir, miso, kimchi, and kombucha. Look for options that contain at least 1 billion CFU of healthy bacteria like lactobacilli and/or bifidobacteria. It’s important to have a source of probiotics every day to gain the health benefits.

Buehler’s yogurt parfaits are a convenient way to add probiotics to your daily eating habits. Visit our yogurt parfait case for a healthful meal or snack to go!
Forget the fad diets
Avoid diets that eliminate whole food groups. Diets should include diverse food choices, in moderation. Research is showing that the microbiota has a great range of needs that a diet with a variety of foods can help provide.
Get your ZZZZs and avoid stress
Not getting enough sleep can have unhealthy impacts on your gut health. Try to prioritize getting at least 7-8 hours of sleep per night and talk with your physician if you are having trouble sleeping. Lack of sleep can also lead to higher levels of stress which is hard on your entire body, including your gut. Try meditation, walking, diffusing essential oils, decreasing caffeine intake, laughing, or yoga to help relax.
Adding a prebiotic or probiotic supplement to your daily habits may be a great way to improve your gut health. As mentioned, prebiotics provide “food” to promote the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut, while probiotics are live healthy bacteria. It’s best to consult your healthcare provider when choosing a probiotic or prebiotic supplement to ensure the best health benefits. Buehler’s offers a wide selection of high-quality supplements
