Salmon is a healthy and great choice to add to your diet! Salmon is high in Omega-3 fatty acids, which gives you good cholesterol and lowers your triglycerides; it lowers blood pressure, reduces inflammation, helps prevent arrhythmia and slows down the build up of plaque in the blood stream. In addition, 4 oz. of salmon gives you 58% of your daily allowance of protein, and it’s a great source of magnesium and selenium. Salmon is also low in fat, making it a great substitute in sandwiches instead of high fat meats. For example, 6 oz. of salmon has 18 g of total fat and 4 g of saturated fat. 
Add salmon to your diet! Salmon is a very versatile meat that you can grill, bake, make salads and sandwiches with, or put in a pasta or casserole dish. Enjoy!
