Brown rice adds flavour but also more vitamins, minerals and fibre compared to the white varieties. Your body will not miss out on nutrition when it comes to Safcol salmon. This fish is a great source of omega 3 fat needed for heart, artery, and brain health. Also, as an anti-inflammatory fat, it may help reduce the symptoms associated with rheumatoid arthritis.
This meal has a range of herbs and spices from basil leaves to chilli and paprika. All are flavour enhancers but they are also full of antioxidants to help fight off the free radicals which can cause damage to the cells of your body. Adding to these benefits is the extra virgin olive oil providing over 36 antioxidants! As well, this oil is a healthy monounsaturated fat. The omega 3 polyunsaturated fat in the salmon also helps your cholesterol levels stay healthy.
Nutrition plays a strong role in keeping your immune system working well. Garlic and onions are great foods to include in your diet because they play this role due to the allicin in the garlic and the quercetin in the onion.
