Health fads will come and go, but some healthy eating ideas have stood the test of time – one of those is Salmon. Salmon is a fresh and healthy dinner option you can feel great about. In Australia, Salmon is expertly and sustainably farmed in Tasmania. There are some key advantages to locally farmed fish. Firstly, it will be fresher, secondly it will have a substantially lower carbon footprint than anything imported from Europe or North America, and finally, it is grown to strict Australian food standards so you can be sure you’re not eating anything dodgy.
We think there are 3 healthy reasons to enjoy Salmon on your dinner plate:
Protein: A mere 113g of salmon will contain roughly half of your daily protein goal. We cater about 150g per person, so that’s a lot of bang for your buck! The proteins found in Salmon are constructed from amino acids which help to build and maintain muscle mass as well as boost your metabolism. You can think of Salmon as a support system for all your hard work in the gym.
Vitamins: Salmon is loaded with vitamins and minerals. There are high concentration of B vitamins that help you to stay energised. Vitamin D helps calcium absorption for healthy bone growth.
Omega 3 Fatty Acids: Say what you want about fat, but not all fat is created equal. Some fats are our enemies, but many others, like EPA and DHA, are our friends. These are omega 3 fatty acids. According to numerous scientific studies, these fats help to maintain healthy joints & skin, reduce your risk of heart disease and aid in brain function. The important thing is that our body can’t make these fats and therefore we need to get them as part of our diet.
Plate some Salmon for dinner and stay healthy 🙂
