Salvere Blog: Is a Picture Really Worth 1,000 Words?

November 11, 2017

by Salvere Health And Fitness

Before and after pictures, head shots for business, pictures on dating sites, photo promoting a personal trainer/massage therapist/dietitian? We use pictures for so many things but what do they really tell?

Before and After Pictures: used often to show “progress” with exercise/fitness/”healthy eating”, but what do they show really? Someone loses weight, we complement – do we know how they accomplished it before saying something? Do we find out if they might be sick or depressed? Say they did “change” their habits, do we know they’re not struggling with an eating disorder?


These pics show one thing, weight loss… do they really show “WHO” this person is and their character? We complement “you look so great”. What about all the rest of the picture, the hidden pieces? What about their generosity, their passion, their intelligence, their value, their internal beauty, their internal health, their abilities, their compassion, their worth, their hobbies, their supportiveness, their ???

Same with other photos – Why do we use them? What does it tell us about that persons ability to do their job, be a good partner, their knowledge about a specific craft? Do we make decisions based on these pictures? Why or why not?

Do we take the time to complement the person behind the picture, long before any weight loss or change in external appearance? As adults, why don’t we show off pictures of ourselves that show more?

Salvere Blog: Wild Salmon Burger Recipe

July 10, 2015


Happy Friday!!! This week, we feature a recipe from our culinary nutritionist, Jennifer Katz.  Each week, we work to feature a whole food recipe that is easy for you to prepare at home.  Our goal with these recipes is to get back to real food with good taste that you can follow.  We want to begin to help each of you get away from the dieting mentality and broaden your healthy eating perspective.  Enjoy!


For years we’ve been discussing the health benefits of eating fish. The oils from certain fatty fish help to decrease inflammation, improve heart health, help with better joints and increase brain function. These salmon patties are an excellent source of these omega-3’s and the vegetables add a little crunch as well as some fiber. Wrap in a lettuce leaf with avocado slices for a gluten free dinner.


Wild Salmon Patties 


1 14.7-ounce can wild salmon, drained
1 cup almond flour
½ cup red pepper, diced
½ cup onion, diced
¼ cup celery, diced
½ cup fresh parsley, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons dijon mustard
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons fresh dill, or 2 tsp dried
½ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon pepper


1. Preheat oven to 375 ℉ . In a large mixing bowl break up the salmon with a fork.
2.  Add all remaining ingredients to the salmon and gently combine.
3. Use an ice cream scoop to transfer mixture to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or silicone liner. Pat each one into a patty shape.
4.  Bake 20 minutes, or until patties begin to brown.
Servings: 9
