Salmon is not only a delicious food, but consuming it also has an enormous amount of health benefits. It’s one of the richest sources of omega-3 fatty acids, these fatty acids are essential as your body can’t create them. Some of the benefits of consuming these essential fatty acids are decreasing inflammation, lowering blood pressure, reducing the risk of cancer and improving the function of the cells that line your arteries.
Salmon is also extremely high in protein, offering around 25 grams of protein in a 100 gram fillet making it a great addition to your post-workout meal. It is also high in vitamin B, potassium, and selenium and can help with weight control.
How to eat it? Salmon is incredibly versatile; there are so many dishes in which it can be included. It can be baked with herbs and veggies, it can be fried for a few minutes in coconut oil, it can be grilled and even steamed. Even something as simple as sprinkling some salt and pepper over the salmon before cooking and squeezing a lemon over it after can make it taste amazing!
