Some fatty acids, like Omega-3 found in cold water fish such as... salmon, are actually good for your heart and are an important part of a healthy diet. — Heart and Stroke Foundation
Health experts recommend eating 2-3 servings of fish a week. Heritage Salmon is a great fish choice because it contains Omega-3 fatty acids.
Here are a few handy, healthy-eating hints.
- Bake, broil or grill your Atlantic Salmon instead of pan-frying it.
- Limit the amount of oil you use.
- Flavour your Heritage Salmon with seasonings like dill, lemon, or pepper instead of butter or oil.
- If you do use oil, make it olive oil. Research suggests that this monounsaturated fat can have a positive impact on your cholesterol level.
- Pair your Heritage Salmon with a healthy side dish like steamed broccoli or carrots. Not only will these colourful veggies look good, they're good for you too.
