Salmon Bowl

Any carnivores in the house? As meat-eaters, we have to make sure we’re consuming healthy and consciously-sourced animal protein.

Salmon contains vital nutrients such as B vitamins that increase energy, reduce inflammation, and literally build brain cells. It’s important to match the nutritious omega 3 fatty acids in the salmon with a good source of carbohydrates so that they can work together to provide you with the energy you need now and give your body the ability to store the rest for later. That’s why we add plenty of veggies and good grains to any dish with an animal-based protein.

This salmon bowl recipe checks all the boxes!

(If you’re on a Keto or other low-carb diet, this is an easy one to adjust to your specific needs!)
