This is no ordinary stir fry, starting with the star ingredient Safcol Salmon in Springwater. A great source of anti-inflammatory omega 3 fat. Salmon also contains iron, which is needed for optimal immune system function and is needed to transport oxygen around your body. Salmon has antioxidants too! These help to fight off free radicals which can cause damage and disease to the cells of your body. Salmon is a good source of iodine which helps keep your thyroid healthy as well as B12 and choline needed for normal central nervous system function.
Eggs add to the protein that the salmon provides as well as more B12, choline, iodine, and selenium. The yolk contains vitamin A which helps your immune system function at its best as well as keeps your eyesight working well. Sesame oil adds more antioxidants to the meal as well as another unsaturated fat which helps your cholesterol levels remain optimal.
Garlic and onions are key vegetables to support your immune system. Ginger adds antioxidants as well as anti-inflammatory properties which can help soothe your gut. Carrots add fibre, as well as vitamin A, and capsicum adds vitamin C to further increase the support your immune system will receive from this meal.
Cabbage is a great source of vitamin K. This fat-soluble vitamin is needed for your blood to clot normally and plays an important role in keeping your bones strong. Cabbage is also a great source of potassium, needed for healthy blood pressure and folate which is vital for DNA synthesis and repair. Bean sprouts are a good source of fibre and vitamins A and C. Sugar snap peas are especially high in soluble fibre, and this type of fibre is needed to help keep your cholesterol levels healthy by drawing the cholesterol out of your body rather than letting it be reabsorbed. This is the gold medallist of all stir-fries.
