The Top 9 Reasons We ♥ Salmon

Everyone knows salmon is healthy, but there are many more reasons we LOVE this delicious fish. We’ve narrowed it down to our top 9 here.

1. Salmon bowls

Power-packed bowls are all the rage. You’ve probably seen poke bowls and acai bowls. Your next must-try? Salmon bowls!

With tons of ingredient combinations and abounding nutrients, salmon bowls offer the perfect quick and wholesome meal. Sriracha salmon? Fried egg? Avocado? The possibilities are endless.

2. It’s a superfood for your skin.

We spend a lot of time and money on products that claim to give us beautiful skin and hair, but we don’t often take our diet into account.

Salmon is one of the best foods sources for Omega-3 fatty acids which helps skin lock in moisture and eliminate unwanted toxins. Salmon also contains Biotin which plays a key role in the production of the fat components in skin cells. The Selenium in salmon helps skin maintain it’s elasticity and firmness as well as playing a role in reducing sun damage. And the Vitamin D found in salmon helps to keep your teeth and bones healthy and strong.

We think you’ve just found your new beauty routine.

3. Lemon pepper salmon. Lemon chive salmon. So many flavors.

5. It’s packed with omega-3s.

Omega-3 fatty acids from salmon may reduce inflammation related to heart disease, lower triglyceride levels, and help lower the risk for blocked blood vessels and heart attacks.

In English? Eating salmon benefits your heart and your overall health. Plus, eating salmon instead of a fish-oil supplement is the preferred way to get your omega-3s.

8. It’s great for our pregnant lady-friends.

Pregnant and breastfeeding women are recommended to get 8 to 12 ounces of seafood per week because of an association with improved infant health outcomes. Salmon is a great seafood option because it’s lower in methyl mercury.
