Every cell in the body needs a good balance of Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids in order to function properly. These Omegas are needed to control inflammatory responses, atherosclerosis, reduce incidences of stroke and heart disease, joint pain, and many other processes in the body. Unfortunately, the human body cannot synthesize the Omega Fatty Acids on their own, so we must get them from our foods. Most foods we eat are loaded with Omega 6s, but the body needs a healthy mix of 3s and 6s. That is why this week we are bringing you a healthy meal that includes a fantastic source of Omega 3s- Salmon! Please keep in mind, the quality of salmon does matter. Farmed salmon spend their lives eating food made from corn (which if I am not mistaken, isn't natural to species that live in the ocean). Look for salmon that is caught in the wild!
Baked Ginger Salmon
Baked Ginger Salmon is a great spin on the traditional flavors of salmon.
