January NT Tip #4- Salmon

January NT Tip #4- Salmon

Dr. Janet Brill

GO WILD FOR SALMON

Wild salmon is a phenomenal source of the super heart-healthy fat, the long chain omega-3s (DHA and EPA) that reduce inflammation in the body and thereby reduce the risk of heart disease and cancer. Wild salmon is practically free of contaminants (mercury and PCB). What is really beneficial about choosing wild over farmed is the vitamin D content. Wild salmon has three times the vitamin D as farmed. Good news: You can have all the benefits of wild salmon at a fraction of the cost by buying canned salmon. Use canned salmon just as you would use canned tuna: Flake it into your pasta salad or mix it with a touch of fat free mayo, mustard, lemon juice, chopped onion and celery and serve it on a sandwich (whole grain, of course!).
