In need of a little inspiration for your next work lunch? Then check out this video for a delicious salmon, carrot and beetroot recipe. And a little tip: if you think it may not be filling enough for you, try adding some rice or quinoa to it.
Here are some of the health benefits of these 3 ingredients:
Salmon – The World’s Healthiest Food.
First of all, salmon is an amazing source of omega-3 fatty acids, which help reduce blood pressure and the levels of cholesterol. They also improve memory and the overall brain function.
Salmon is also packed with vitamins D, A and some members of the Vitamin-B family. They keep your skin, hair and nails healthy. And, combined with the fatty acids and selenium, act as an antidepressant, protecting your nervous system.
Moreover, salmon is a great source of minerals such as calcium, iron, and zinc.
Carrots – The Crunch Powerfood.
Carrots are rich in vitamins A, C, K and B8. They contain a high level of beta carotene and fiber, and are a good source of antioxidant agents. This means that carrots promote beautiful skin, improve vision, slow down aging, prevent heart disease and fight infections. Studies have also shown that carrots reduce the risk of certain types of cancer.
Beetroot – The Ancient Superfood.
Beets are a prehistoric food that has been growing in Europe, Asia and North Africa for thousands of years.
Beetroots are often not included in the lists of the most recommended vegetables because of their high sugar content (highest of all vegetables). But they can be safely eaten a few times a week even by those on a diet.
Beetroots can boost your stamina, lower your blood pressure, fight inflammation and are great for detoxifying your body.
