Salmon and soba noodle salad

Good for your brain, heart and arteries.

This is the perfect soba noodle salad. The star protein from Safcol is the salmon in springwater. As a fatty fish, it contains more of the essential omega 3 fat your brain, heart and arteries need to function well. It also helps to absorb the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K which require fat to be absorbed properly. Sesame seeds are a good source of calcium which is needed for normal muscle contractions as well as keeping your teeth and bones strong. Sesame seeds are also made up of mostly unsaturated fat which is better for optimal cholesterol levels.

Nori sheets are the only plant form of omega 3 fats which, like fish, are made up of DHA and EPA. Nori sheets are also a good source of iodine which is needed for healthy thyroid function. Mushrooms are a good source of B vitamins which are needed to make energy from the food which you eat. Asparagus is a good source of a B vitamin called folate which is needed for DNA to be made and to be repaired when damage occurs.

Lime juice contains immune-supporting vitamin C and fresh coriander leaves add their own array of antioxidants. Antioxidants help to fight off free radicals which can cause damage and disease to the cells of your body.
