Nourishing omega 3 rich meals for winter
Been LOVING meals like this recently – lots of warmth in a bowl to fuel for winter.
Grilled, pan fried or baked salmon, quinoa cooked in vege stock – deeeelicious – and making yum dressings to dollop on the side using coconut or greek yoghurt, olive oil, sea salt, lemon and whatever herbs I fancy that day.
If fish is part of your diet, then aim to incorporate fatty fish such as salmon, trout, tuna, mackerel and herring 2-3 times per week to reap the benefits of essential fatty acids, high quality proteins and nutrients to boosting brain / cognitive, cardiovascular and nervous system health.
These days I find the pieces of fish always seem to be cut particularly large so if this is the case for you too, then still cook the entire, but save half for the following day’s lunch, that way you don’t have to ‘think’ about cooking fish twice within the week, it’s already done for you – no brainer food and nutrition for your brain!
