Super Food Salmon Salad ~ As seen on WTHR Channel 13- Indianapolis
IndyStyle on WISH-TV Indianapolis
AND on Southern Plate/Southern Bite Meal Plan Monday
It is heart health month and I have been sharing easy recipes like Super Food Salmon Salad, and tips to eat your way to a healthy heart with the Seafood Nutrition Partnership. I have worked in conjunction with this organization to promote heart health through consuming seafood or fish twice a week. The 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend at least two servings of seafood per week to take in adequate amounts of lean protein, omega-3s, vitamins and minerals. Unfortunately, 80-90% of Americans are missing these critical nutrients. A simple salad like this Super Food Salmon Salad can help with that!
This month I have been on a bit of a media tour, sharing the message of heart healthy recipes, how to eat well for less and it has been very fun. I recently shared this Super Food Salmon Salad on WTHR and IndyStyle. Watch the WTHR segment HERE.
Eating seafood 2X week reduces the risk of dying from heart disease by 36%. Eating seafood for essential Omega-3 fatty acids can prevent 84,000 deaths each year. Older adults who had the highest blood levels of the Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish lived, on average, 2.2 years longer than those with lower levels.
