February 12th, 2013


Salmon contains an abundance of nutritional benefits. It is loaded with heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamin D and selenium. It has been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease, improve cardiac function and decrease inflammation. Just make sure to choose wild salmon. Wild salmon is able to swim freely and eat a natural diet which increase it’s nutritional benefits, while farm raised salmon is confined to small areas, reducing its nutritional quality as well as exposing the fish to toxic chemicals.
Today’s salmon recipe is simple and so good…both kids and my husband loved it!
