WHAT MAKES SALMON A SUPER FOOD?
Wild-caught Sockeye Salmon is a super food because of its omega-3 fatty acid content. Studies show that omega-3 fatty acids promote cardiovascular health. The American Heart Association recommends eating fatty fish like salmon and other Omega-3 rich foods, twice a week. Incorporate wild-caught salmon recipes into your diet to improve cardiovascular health. Salmon is high in protein but low in calorie. It’s also a good source of iron. You can simply grill or bake it, top it with salsas or other low-fat sauces, or serve it on top of salad greens. If you don’t like salmon or are on a plant-based diet, check out all of the other Omega-3 rich super foods in this issue, like Sacha Inchi or Savi Seeds, Brazil Nuts, Walnuts, Pumpkin Seeds or Papitas, Hemp Hearts, Hemp Protein, and Chia Seeds.
