Salmon is a key whole food in the Mediterranean Diet, and is well known for its omega 3 heart healthy fats. Omega 3s help to protect heart and bone health, the brain, as well as support dry eyes and dry skin common with menopause. And some studies have shown that omega 3s may be linked to helping reduce night sweats.
Salmon is a tasty, food-first way to get more omega 3s in your diet. It's also easier to prepare than you may think. This sheet pan dinner takes only a few minutes to prep and makes for a perfectly balanced meal with protein, fat and carbohydrates. Garlic, ginger and the omega 3s provide the added benefit of being naturally anti-inflammatory as well - another reason this makes for a heart healthy, easy weeknight dinner!
Try replacing red meat for salmon once a week. Your heart will thank you.
