Ok everyone, this is the first post for Healthy Foods Friday! I am super excited to share this awesome healthy Grilled Salmon recipe with all of you. I just made it today for our Father’s Day cookout and everyone LOVED it!!! (I did substitute lemon with lime and it tasted great! I would also recommend marinating it longer than 1 hour.) We paired it with roasted brussel sprouts, corn, and seasoned quinoa! Yuuummm!!!
I would also like to talk a little bit about salmon and the health benefits that we receive from eating salmon. Omega-3 fatty acids are a healthy fat that we need in our diet to keep healthy. These fatty acids can be found in salmon which help our bodies become healthier in the following ways….
- Lowers bad cholesterol
- Increases good cholesterol
- Decreases blood pressure
- Slows buildup of plaque in arteries
- Builds brain cells
How can you beat these health benefits? It’s a no brainer! Some other types of fish that are rich in these important omega-3s are…
- Albacore tuna
Please let me know what you thought of this AMAZING recipe!! Stay tuned for next Fridays healthy food recipe pick. I hope you all enjoy and stay healthy!
