Are you in the mood for a frittata? Then do not go past this. Safcol salmon provides your body with a quality source of protein which not only increases the satiety you will feel after this meal, it also helps to make and repair all the cells in your body. Salmon is a good source of iodine and selenium which helps your thyroid function, and B12 and choline which are needed for your central nervous system to work normally.

Eggs deliver more protein to this meal as well as vitamins A, D, E and B. Peas contain fibre to increase satiety. Peas are also a good source of potassium; this mineral is needed to maintain blood pressure at a healthy level. Both the lemon and peas provide vitamin C which is needed to make collagen. This protein plays an important part of your tendons and ligaments and is needed for healthy gums and skin. Peas are also a source of Vit B6 which is needed to make energy from the food which you eat and assists in regulating your central nervous system.

Leeks are also a good source of vitamins A, B6 and C and contain iron. Iron assists oxygen transport to the cells and plays an important role in keeping your immune system functioning at its best. Chives are an excellent source of vitamin A and C and a good source of magnesium. Magnesium plays many important roles in your body such as energy production, maintaining the strength of your teeth and bones and regulating normal muscle contractions.

Cheese is fantastic food with many health benefits which include not only protein and calcium. Cheese is a good source of vitamin K2. This vitamin plays an important role in keeping the blood cells which nourish your brain healthy. This is one fantastic frittata!
