If you're over 40, then you should definitely be considering the heart healthy benefits of Vitamin-D, Magnesium, and Omega-3 fatty acids. Unfortunately, most people simply aren't eating enough foods that contain these critical nutrients!
Lucky for you; this tasty recipe is loaded with all three...
Quinoa & Salmon Buddha Bowl
4 cups baby spinach 1 cup quinoa (cooked) 1 can wild salmon 2 tablespoons sesame seeds ½ red onion (diced) (optional) 2 tablespoons sesame oil 2 tablespoons rice vinegar 1 tablespoon lemon juice dash salt and pepper
Split spinach, quinoa, wild salmon, sesame seeds, and onion (if using) between two bowls.
Mix sesame oil, rice vinegar, and lemon juice together and pour on top of prepared Buddha bowls.
Season with sea salt and fresh-ground pepper to taste.
Serve & Enjoy!
Tip: When looking for canned salmon try to get the ones with the most vitamin D and make sure cans are BPA-free. Good quality canned fish is usually in the “natural foods” section of many large groceries.
