Over 60% of your brain is made of fat with the most prevalent fat in the brain consisting of an omega 3 fat type. Omega 3 fat is also needed for your heart, arteries and eyes to function normally and may also help reduce symptoms associated with rheumatoid arthritis. Salmon is also a great source of ‘haem’ or animal-based iron, this type of iron is better absorbed by your body than plant ‘non-haem’ iron. Iron plays a crucial role in helping oxygen be transported around your body.
Wholemeal penne pasta will help your gut stay healthy as a source of resistant starch and soluble fibre. These two types of fibre help to feed the good bacteria in your gut which helps to keep you healthy. Extra virgin olive oil will help the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K be absorbed properly. Olive oil will also assist the omega 3 fat in keeping your cholesterol levels in desired ranges of more ‘good’ HDL cholesterol which help remove the cholesterol from your arteries and less ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol. LDL cholesterol can build up and form plaques in your arteries which can lead to a heart attack.
