Ingredients

½ cup balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons honey
2 (4-ounce) salmon filets
½ green onion, chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place parchment paper on a baking sheet.

I don't do any physical activity other than what I need to do for my usual activities, such as going to work or school, grocery shopping, or doing chores around the house.

I do some moderate exercise every day in addition to doing my usual activities. For example, I walk about 1.5 to 3 miles a day at about 3 to 4 miles an hour. Or I do something else that's moderately active.

I am very active every day in addition to doing my usual activities. For example, I walk more than 3 miles a day at about 3 to 4 miles an hour. Or I do something else that's very active.
