Healthy dinner (veg all organic): INGREDIENTS:Wild salmonSweet potatoBrocolli Baby cornKaleYellow pepperChilliTurmericOlive oil Nothing fancy but full of health… Pan-fried wild salmon, for a good source of Omega 3’s, EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). These are ‘essential fatty acids’ as the body can’t synthesise them, so they must be obtained from the diet. Oily fish is the best source of Omega 3’s even though you can get them from plant sources, such as ALA (alpha-linolenic acid) from walnuts, the body has to convert them into EPA and DHA and it is not that efficient at doing so – one study in healthy young men showed that only 8% of ALA converted to EPA and 0-4% converted to DHA. In healthy young women, the conversion was 21% to EPA and 9% to DHA. Omega 3 essential fatty acids have lots of benefits, particularly for heart health and blood pressure, brain health, eye health, autoimmune health and help to fight inflammation. It’s recommended we aim to eat oily fish twice a week and always aim for wild over farmed. Farmed is more likely to have contaminants and wild has a better nutritional profile. The sweet potato mash has been supercharged withs turmeric – a quick way to bump up the nutritional value (alternatively use dried herbs), and the veg act as staple supply of important vitamins and minerals.
