Salmon can be a heart-healthy and delicious addition to your low carb lifestyle.
February is American Heart Month, the perfect time to feature a heart-healthy superfood like salmon. Salmon, in addition to other cold-water fish like tuna, can be an excellent addition to your low carb lifestyle.
What is a Superfood?
A superfood is generally thought to be loaded with nutrients and antioxidants and may help promote optimal health.
Why is Salmon Considered a Superfood?
Salmon earns its superfood status because it is rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Certain omega 3s may decrease triglyceride levels, slow the rate of coronary artery calcium build-up and lower blood pressure, as well as decrease inflammation and support brain health. Salmon is also a good source of satisfying and muscle-building protein and B vitamins.

Salmon is Good for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Snacks
Think scrambles or omelets with salmon, salads with salmon, all sorts of entrees and salmon roll-ups or salmon stacks as snacks.
