Celebrate summer with our light, fresh, and healthy Wild Salmon and Sorghum Bowl! Incorporating salmon into your diet is a wonderful way to add protein and healthy fats, but there’s a difference between the different varieties you see at the grocery store. Wild salmon will have veining throughout, and it will be a bright red color, while farm-raised salmon will be a light pink color and have a slightly different nutrition content. It’s always preferred to eat the wild salmon if you have the choice, but if you can’t find it, then regular farm-raised salmon will be just fine. Salmon is a fantastic source of omega-3 fatty acids, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, and pantothenic acid, so it’s important to make sure that you are eating this fish at least twice a week. Studies have shown that omega-3 fatty acids can protect heart health, reduce risk of stroke, improve blood lipid patterns, and improve blood vessel function (1), so go ahead and partake in this delicious fish and enjoy all of the health benefits it provides!
