Fish, especially fatty fish like salmon, herring and tuna have some of the best source of omega-3 fatty acid nutrients. The American Heart Association recommends including two fatty-fish meals a week in your diet.
Wild salmon, in addition to tasting great is really rich in the omega-3 good fats, which makes the blood less likely to clot within your arteries, thus preventing cholesterol from becoming damaged or oxidized. (Farmed salmon is not recommended because it is full of toxins and far less omega-3s).
A nice combination for dinner is to include salmon and spinach – which will give you plenty of omega-3 fats, vitamin C and vitamin A, which are all very good for your arteries.
Note: It’s recommended to limit your consumption of tuna and halibut as they are known to have more toxins present being “deep-water” fish – salmon is definitely better.
