One day I thought about how to incorporate more healthy fats and Omega’s into my meals. I researched different recipes involving salmon and walnuts as I knew these were two I should use to make a healthy meal. I personally love all of the ingredients in this meal, especially olives, and lemon, so I thought about how to create a balance of flavors as they can be quite strong. I hope you enjoy the result!
I suggest paring this with my Strawberry Spinach Lentil Salad!
Let’s talk about these amazing ingredients!
Olives- full of iron and good fats that support the nervous system to be calming, strengthening, and protective. Iron aids in the formation of hemoglobin, which carries oxygen throughout the body which is necessary for the brain.
Walnuts- Much like salmon walnuts are Omega-3 rich. Omega-3 is a healing fatty acid that lowers levels of triglycerides, a type of fat in the bloodstream. Walnuts are similarly shaped like brains, so it only seems right to eat lots of walnuts for brain health!
Lemon- This citrus fruit is a rich source of vitamin C. It also contains vitamin B, riboflavin, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and much more. Magnesium
Parsley-Parsley is rich in vitamin A, several B vitamins, vitamin K and has more vitamin C than most citrus fruits. It boosts the immune system and can prevent against many infections, colds and other diseases.
