Did you know there are good fats and bad fats? Knowing which of these is good or bad for you can make a BIG difference in your overall health.
Eating healthy also doesn’t mean sacrificing flavor or the fun of cooking up something yummy and healthy!
Salmon is very rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, and this can help reduce your blood pressure and keep clotting at bay. Not only that, but having two servings per week can reduce your risk of dying of a heart attack by up to 1/3! Amazing! (Just make sure when choosing your salmon that you choose wild salmon over farm raised, which can have heavy metals, pesticides, etc.)
Check out this amazingly yummy recipe below for an easy oven baked salmon dinner:
1 whole salmon side (rinsed, without bones)
2 tsps salt or salt substitute
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp rosemary
2 lemons, sliced thin
1 small red onion, sliced thin
8 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Preheat the oven to 425. Cut a piece of foil large enough to place the salmon on, and be able to also cover. Place the salmon on the foil, and sprinkle the salmon with salt, pepper, and rosemary. Then place the lemon slices, garlic slices, and onion slices over the salmon as well. Brush the olive oil on over the salmon last, and then cover fully with foil. Place the salmon in the oven for 15 minutes, or cooked through and serve immediately.
Perfect with a side of veggies!
If you are not fond of Salmon, other oily fish like Tuna, Mackerel, and Herring are also able to give your heart the same healthy boost!
