Smoked Salmon Scramble
SMOKED SALMON SCRAMBLE
FOOD AS MEDICINE:
Salmon is one of the best sources of cardioprotective Omega 3 essential fatty acids. Omega 3 fatty acids are responsible for reducing inflammation in the body and preventing plaque build up in the arteries as well as promoting healthy cognitive function and skin health. We also love the Omega 3s from Salmon in that they are said to increase metabolism and decrease fat cell size- particularly belly fat! Choosing Wild Caught over farmed salmon ensures you are getting all the Omega 3 salmon naturally has to offer minus harmful chemicals and hormones found in farmed salmon.
