Salmon when it’s wild-caught and not farmed, is one of the most nutritious foods on the planet. A small fillet of wild salmon has 131 fewer calories and half the fat content of the same amount of farmed salmon.
Wild salmon is credited with everything from extending the life span to preventing heart attacks and cancer. And not only does the salmon nutrition profile possess one of the highest omega-3 contents of any type of fish, but each serving is also packed with tons of other vitamins, minerals and salmon protein as well.
Avocado is the only fruit that provides a substantial amount of healthy monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA). Avocados are a naturally nutrient-dense food and contain nearly 20 vitamins and minerals.
Together they are a powerhorse of a meal.
