Eat Your Salmon

Salmon is one of my favorite foods. Literally, I will go weeks eating air fried salmon all day everyday. Best part is salmon is one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet. 

With a complete protein profile of around 17 grams per 3 ounces, plus the protein and fat will satisfy your hunger and keep you fuller longer. 

Salmon is also loaded with omega 3 fatty acids, something a lot of Americans are lacking. High in EPA and DHA which helps with excessive inflammation, can help lower blood pressure, may prevent cancer, and helps cellular function of the cells that line your arteries. 

This wonder fish is also loaded with selenium which helps protect bone health and decreases thyroid antibodies which can benefit those dealing with autoimmune thyroid disease.
