Salmon Health Benefits

Salmon Health Benefits

Salmon can be so easy to make and is one of my favorite dinner go to’s. I always keep some frozen salmon filets in the freezer for a quick, easy, healthy dinner.

Salmon has many health benefits:
✔️Rich in Omega-3 Fatty Acids
✔️Great source of Protein
✔️High in B vitamins, Potassium, and antioxidants
✔️Good for cardiovascular health and thyroid function
✔️Improves brain function and cognition

Choose high quality salmon. When looking for salmon, you want to stick to the wild-caught varieties. These can be coho salmon, sockeye salmon, or king salmon. Sockeye has a stronger flavor and is the leanest. King salmon is the most expensive and is thicker and more rich tasting. Avoid the farm raised fatty Atlantic salmon. These are often fed an artificial diet and are lower in nutrients. It is better to buy frozen wild caught salmon than fresh farmed salmon.

Working salmon in your rotation is a win, win! It's delicious and good for your health!

Spicy Ground Beef with Butternut Squash

Spicy Ground Beef with Butternut Squash

My meal prep included one of my favorites courtesy of www.myheartbeats.com

Spicy Ground Beef and Butternut Squash.

This recipe I will do anytime I come across butternut squash already cubed at Costco.

I saw it... I bought it... I get to make it!  If you do get the squash from Costco I typically just double the recipe and that will use up the entire container of squash. I have also done this recipe with brussel sprouts and asparagus in the past but I just love it with the squash! I'd say this recipe is 5 servings so the macro breakdown is 

Calories 250 NET Carbs 8g Fat 15g Protein 20g
