We enjoyed this recipe as a supper healthy lunch (or dinner).
Salmon is an excellent source of high-quality protein, vitamins & minerals (including potassium, selenium and vitaminn B12) but its content of omega-3 fatty acids we love along with avocado - a great source of potassium, omega-3 fatty acids, and lutein. Because of the fat content in avocados, will facilitate absorption of fat-soluble nutrients (vitamins A, D, E & K) when combined with foods containing those nutrients.
By adding this creamy fruit to any vegetable-dense meals will help you get all of the vitamins of your food. Quinoa - With twice the protein content of rice & barley, is also a very good source of calcium, magnesium and manganese. It has good levels of several B vitamins, vitamin E and dietary fibre.
