When preparing foods for a family everything should be considered, from the ingredients you incorporate to the way of preparation. Foods for your family should be healthy, and yet full of flavour.
One of the exciting recipes I will be sharing with you is the Raspberry Salmon while the other one is an Oven-Baked Salmon With Almond Parsley Salad.
There are a lot of health benefits that we can get from eating salmon which I would like to include 6 of here.
Health Benefits of Salmon
- The first one is; it’s beneficial for inflammatory joint treatment like osteoarthritis. Salmon contains proteins we call bioactive peptides. It has been shown to regulate, stabilise and increase collagen synthesis in human osteoarthritic cartilage. The protein we can find in salmon also improves bone strength and density.
- The second benefit is; salmon increases cardiovascular health. It contains omega-3 fats, DHA and EPA. These fats are responsible for reducing inflammation. If eaten regularly, it can protect you from high blood pressure, heart attack, high triglycerides and stroke.
- Salmon also has vitamin D, which is a crucial ingredient to maintain health. Deficiency of vitamin D has been linked to an increased possibility of cardiovascular disease, cancer, rheumatoid arthritis and others.
- Another benefit is that salmon helps to prevent cell damage. It’s a good source of selenium which works as an antioxidant in our bodies. This mineral is linked to decreased risk of joint inflammation. Furthermore, it keeps the thyroid and immune system working well, while it protects our tissues from cell damage.
- Salmon goes really well with greens like kale and spinach. The B vitamins, proteins and omega-3 fatty acids complement the vitamin C in greens. So, it’s better to incorporate greens in your recipe, just like in the two salmon recipes I am sharing.
- Salmon contains a high level of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) which is the central nervous system’s main structural fatty acid. When you are pregnant or nursing your baby, salmon is best to eat because it boosts the academic performance and learning capability of children.
There are a lot of benefits you can get from eating salmon, but you have to prepare it correctly in order to retain the nutrients it has. Raspberry Salmon and Oven-Baked Salmon with Almond Parsley Salad are one of the best salmon recipes there is. Another healthy and tasty fish recipe is this Roasted Hake With Hemp & Herb Crust make sure to check it out.
