Tis the Season: Salmon
Superfood Definition: Foods that have health benefits that go well beyond just their nutrient value. These foods are typically loaded with a combination of critical fatty acids, anti-oxidant nutrients and essential amino acids.
--> Wild-caught salmon found in non-polluted waters is an extraordinary superfood.
The past weeks we’ve talked about how delicious and good it is to purchase seasonal produce. Well here’s another fact, other foods, like meats, have seasons too!
That’s right, and what’s in this season is Salmon. Until late this summer salmon is at its most delectable!
Salmon also packs a pretty serious healthy punch.
• High in omega-3 fatty acids, a type of fat that seems to decrease the risk of heart disease.
• Lots of protein in every bite
• Contains D and B vitamins
And just like buying your produce organically and locally, make sure you purchase wild, fresh salmon. Fresh salmon is not only better for the environment than farmed, but it also contains less TOXINS. Wild salmon have a more balanced diet, whereas farm salmon are fed pellets that can contain toxins not found naturally.
This is not a fishy tasting fish and is adored by fish lovers and rookies alike.
