Salmon is such a powerhouse of a food to incorporate into your weekly meal rotations. Packed with protein, healthy fats and vitamin D, there are many reasons why I like to try out new flavours with this delicious fish.
Speaking of healthy fats, research has shown that the omega-3 content coming from salmon can improve health in a number of ways, including the prevention of heart disease and other cardiovascular events. Studies have also found that EPA and DHA (omega-3 fatty acids) are crucial for fetal brain and retina development.
Additionally, these fatty acids “may reduce symptoms of depression and improve cognitive functioning of patients with mild Alzheimer’s disease.” Including salmon or other fatty fish (ex. mackerel, sardines, herring) two times per week can improve your omega-3 profile and promote better heart health.
