A good choice for anyone who wants to select a fish with lower mercury

This meal is not only delicious but has a good nutrition package, starting with the star of the meal the Safcol salmon with mild chilli. A good choice for anyone who wants to select a fish with lower mercury as it is a top dweller fish. Salmon is a good source of many nutrients including two macronutrients fat and protein. Protein will keep you feeling fuller for longer and help your body build and repair its cells Omega 3 fat is a healthy polyunsaturated fat which promotes optimal brain and heart health as well as helps to improve your mood. Salmon contains an antioxidant called astaxanthin. This antioxidant helps to lower your ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol and raise your ‘good’ HDL cholesterol.
Do you want to keep your eyes working well? Then the carrots are your friend as they provide vitamin A. Vitamin A plays other roles like helping to keep your immune system firing. Further adding to the immune promoting factors are the capsicum which adds vitamin C, garlic with its antioxidant called quercetin. Green beans add more vitamin C and A to the recipe but also folate, needed for your body to make and repair DNA. All the vegetables add potassium to your meal which helps your blood pressure stay within a healthy range and add fibre.
Ginger is a great addition to this meal as it has a gut soothing factor and can help reduce nausea. Brown rice is the best choice of rice as it is a whole grain. Whole grains add additional fibre for fullness and to support a healthy gut. Also, more vitamins and minerals like iron, zinc, B vitamins, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, and copper than refined grains. The sesame oil adds additional antioxidants and may have anti-inflammatory properties to help your body stay in a healthy ‘balanced’ state. This recipe should be a top contender for your next lunch or dinner.
