Salmon Recipe! Yum!!!


Salmon is super yummy and super good for you! It is rich in Omega-3's. Which helps your body in many ways! Including helping to protect your heart again disease, fight against Alzheimer's, and stroke! (Just to name a few) And let me tell you, I have experience with all of those things in members of my family.. If there is anything I can do to fight against them I will! Omega-3's are also said to to help with fetal development and brain function for all ages! AND can help reduce blood pressure! How great is that?! :) 

Besides the fact that it helps you in so many ways! It is easy to prepare and tastes delicious! I will be eating it a lot more often from now on! How about you? Here is a recipe for you to try!
