Protein is needed to build and repair every cell in your body.

A tart with a healthy twist. Salmon is one of the best choices you can make for optimizing the amount of omega-3 fat your body receives. Omega-3 fat is an essential fat your body needs for health. It promotes healthy cholesterol levels, heart and brain function as well as helping the retinas in your eyes to work well. As an anti-inflammatory fat, it may also assist with reducing the symptoms associated with rheumatoid arthritis. Salmon does not only have healthy fat but a good dose of protein to keep you feeling fuller for longer. Protein is also needed to build and repair every cell in your body.

Cheese is a great way to give your body the calcium it needs for strong bones and teeth. Eggs are best whole as this means your body will receive vitamin D. This fat-soluble vitamin is needed for optimizing the amount of calcium your body can absorb but also plays other roles including keeping your immune system working well. Eggs add more protein to this meal. Both the salmons and eggs give your body added vitamins and minerals like B12, choline and selenium!

When shopping for the ingredients the best olive oil to select is extra virgin olive oil. It is a healthy monounsaturated oil which, like the omega-3 fat in the salmon helps your cholesterol stay in a healthy range. It also adds over 36 different antioxidants to the meal! Antioxidants help to fight off free radicals which can cause damage and disease to the cells of your body.

The red onion and zucchini are sources of potassium. Potassium is a mineral which helps keep your blood pressure at a healthy level. Red onion adds an immune system supporting antioxidant called quercetin. Zucchini will also help your immune system as good sources of vitamins A and C. Vitamin A plays a role in keeping your eyes working well and vitamin C plays a role in creating collagen. This is clearly a tart which can boast health benefits as well as a top-rated taste!
