Salmon is a nutrient powerhouse! It supplies our bodies with a high dose of Omega-3 fatty acids, which support a healthy inflammatory response. It also contains Vitamin E, which neutralizes harmful free radicals that can lead to cancer and cellular damage, and Vitamin D- which a lot of us tend to be deficient in. Salmon also provides more than half your recommended daily value of selenium (another protector against free radicals), and significant servings of B12, B6, and other trace minerals. Finally, salmon is an excellent source of lean protein, offering approximately 21 grams per 3 oz serving. If you haven’t already calculated your daily macro needs, you should do that ASAP!

Asparagus (which you can now buy in three beautiful colors depending on the time of year!) is one of our favorite vegetables. When cooked well it has a beautiful outside crunch, while still being perfectly tender inside. And it turns out that grandma really wasn’t trying to poison you all those years as a kid- did you know that asparagus is also pretty darn healthy? One cup of cooked asparagus offers about 400 mg of potassium, a crucial nutrient for fluid balance, nerve signals, and muscle contractions. Did you know you could that much from something other than a banana? Asparagus is also a great source of B vitamins, antioxidants, and Vitamins A, C, E, and K. A delicious multi-vitamin all wrapped up in a roasted salmon meal prep recipe? Yes, please.
