Salmon has a higher level of omega 3 fat than most fish species.

Who says sandwiches are boring? This recipe certainly will prove that theory incorrect. Brown bread, specifically whole grain brown bread is a smart choice. Whole grain varieties contain more fibre for fullness and to support optimal gut health. Whole grain also provides the complete nutritional value a grain can provide including B vitamins for energy, iron to allow oxygen to be transported around your body properly and zinc for optimal immune health.

The star protein source is undoubtedly the Safcol salmon. The protein gives your body an additional fulness factor on top of the fibre. Also, salmon has a higher level of omega 3 fat, than most fish species. This essential fat helps your brain, eyes and heart function at their best. On top of these impressive benefits salmon also gives your body iron, zinc, B12 for normal central nervous system function and selenium and iodine for optimal thyroid health.

Asparagus is a highly underrated vegetable being a great source of folate. This is needed to make and create your DNA. The Lebanese cucumber will help your blood pressure stay at healthy levels as a source of potassium. While the onions will help the role of zinc in optimizing your immune function with its antioxidant quercetin.

Cream cheese adds delicious flavour and texture but also more protein as well as calcium needed for strong bones and teeth. Cream cheese is also a good source of iodine, selenium and B12. The vitamin D found in the Safcol salmon will help the calcium to be absorbed properly by your body. So, this is a perfect food combination. This is undoubtedly a sandwich to enjoy on your next lunch break.
