Feel Good Salmon by Kristina Rice – www.kristinarice.com
I created this recipe when I was having a real banged up clumsy kind of week at work, and wanted something delicious but still good for me.
The dark leafy greens (which I used spinach) is the best source for vitamin E which helps protect the body with inflammation, the almonds are rich in fiber, calcium, vitamin D and those are also antioxidants which helps my body fight damage caused by the inflammation. The peppers not only are they flavor but they have high quantities of antioxidants and vitamins the spicy peppers have capsaicin which they used to reduce pain and inflammation. Salmon I just happen to like but salmon, Mackerel and tuna are high in omega-3 which helps reduce inflammation so hence this recipe was born. Everything I needed thrown together to make a delicious salmon dish that made me feel good.
I hope you enjoy it and go relax.
