Try Salmon On Ezekiel Bread For A Quick Snack
Salmon is one of the best protein sources that you can include in your diet because not only is it going to provide high quality amino acids, necessary for rebuilding of muscle tissues, but it’s also going to provide you with important omega fats.
These will help to improve insulin sensitivity, helping you build a lean body, while also warding off diseases such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.
Omega fats are also important for keeping your brain healthy and may lower your risk for depression.
Most people are currently not getting enough of this healthy fat in their diet plan on a regular basis, so this recipe will help solve that problem.
Added to this recipe is a small dose of Greek yogurt, which also provides added protein and will offer a good dose of calcium as well.
This helps foster stronger bones and regular muscular contractions. Be sure to buy the unsweetened variety to avoid taking in any extra sugar with this meal.
Next, the avocado will provide a healthy dose of unsaturated fat, helping boost heart health while also improving your complexion thanks to the vitamin E that it contains.
The Ezekiel bread is a rich source of dietary fibre and complex carbohydrates, so will help provide long-lasting energy to your day while also boosting heart health.
Finally, the red pepper will offer a good dose of vitamin C, acting as an antioxidant in the body while also strengthening your immune system.
