There is something so refreshing about a salad! It gets things moving internally, gives us beneficial nutrients when adding delicious toppings and is finished within 10 minutes. How can you beat that! This salmon salad is a treat, it has a ton of protein from the salmon and eggs with a light lemony dressing. Enjoy! <h4><p style="color: rgba(20, 117, 135, 1)">Wild Caught Wonder</p></h4> When it’s wild-caught and not farmed, salmon is one of the most nutritious foods on the planet. It’s credited with everything from extending the life span to preventing heart attacks and cancer. Not only does the salmon possess one of the highest omega-3 contents of any type of fish, but each serving is also packed with tons of other vitamins, minerals, and protein as well. Wild caught salmon contains 25% more vitamin D than farm raised. The omega-3s are extremely beneficial for bone health and even protect our brain and nervous system. <h4><p style="color: rgba(20, 117, 135, 1)">Eggalicious Protein</p></h4> We all know eggs are delicious. But did you know they also reduce your risk of a long list of diseases, protect your skin and eyes from UV damage, and improve liver and brain function? It’s true, and these are just some of the amazing health benefits of eggs. Choline is a macronutrient that our bodies produce in very small amounts, so in order to get enough of it, we have to get it from our food. Eggs are a choline-rich food choice, which means they assist in liver function and brain development, among other features. The lutein and zeaxanthin in eggs don’t just protect your eyes by filtering certain light rays, they do the same with your skin. By filtering out the more harmful blue spectrum rays, these carotenoids slow down the oxidative damage light can wreak on your skin, specifically by UV rays! <h4><p style="color: rgba(20, 117, 135, 1)">Smoked Salmon Salad</p></h4> <h5>Prep Time: 5 mins | Cook Time: 10 mins | Serves: 2</h5> <h5><p style="color: rgba(20, 117, 135, 1)">Ingredients:</p></h5> * 150 g smoked wild salmon * 1 small head of lettuce * 1 large avocado * 2 hard-boiled free range eggs * 1 cup cherry tomatoes * 2 lemons * 2 tablespoons avocado oil <h5><p style="color: rgba(20, 117, 135, 1)">Instructions:</p></h5> 1.
