Eating protein-dense foods will help you feel full and satisfied, and it can help reduce cravings later on. Protein is essential for supporting brain health, hormone and enzyme function, and muscle protein synthesis. The omega-3 fats are “essential” for good nutrition because your body can’t make them independently, so you have to get them from food. Omega-3’s can help decrease inflammation and improve your sleep.

We recommend selecting wild-caught Alaskan salmon, which is an excellent protein and omega-3 fatty acid source, for this recipe.
