When I’m hungry and haven’t done my food prep, I don’t have time to make anything fancy.
I like simple, flavorful foods enhanced with herbs and freshly squeezed lemon or elements that bring out the food’s natural flavors – and it’s nice to know that the food I’m eating has major health benefits as well as being a tasty way to satisfy my appetite!
One of my favorite fish is wild-caught salmon. Wild-caught Alaskan salmon is high in vitamin D, vitamin B12 and protein and is an excellent source of healthy Omega-3’s.
It bakes easily and retains its moisture well. Additionally, parsley is high in vitamin K and vitamin C, an excellent source of folic acid (one of the most important B-vitamins) and contains particular flavenoids that function as beneficial antioxidants.
