This nutrient dense, delicious recipe is also good brain food.
Salmon is rich in Omega-3 essential fatty acids that
- help build brain cells
- fight inflammation in the brain and
- increase production of brain growth hormones that give your brain the ability to grow and change
Nuts have a mix of protein, healthy fats and slow-burning carbohydrates. They’re also rich in fiber, zinc, iron and essential vitamins.
You can add veggies tossed with olive oil, sea salt and minced garlic to roast with the salmon. Some of my favorites are:
- green beans
Leftovers make a filling second meal.
- Toss roasted salmon and veggies with greens, add rainbow vegges (carrots, bell peppers, tomatoes, etc)
- Add to a grain bowl, mix in additional veggies and drizzle with balsamic vinaigrette or pesto
- Make a wrap with pesto and greens
