Safcol Premium Smoked Salmon provides delicious flavour and protein to the risotto. As a fatty fish, it is a great source of the essential fat known as omega-3 fat. This fat plays an important role in brain, heart, and artery health. As an anti-inflammatory fat, it may also help reduce the symptoms associated with rheumatoid arthritis.

Red onion is a prebiotic source meaning it helps to feed the good bacteria in your gut. Having a healthy gut is linked to improved metabolism, mental and organ health, and immune function. Extra virgin olive oil adds another healthy fat to the meal called monounsaturated fat. This fat type is linked to heart health as it positively impacts your cholesterol levels to increase ‘good’ HDL cholesterol and lower ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol and triglycerides.

Beetroots contain nitrates which have positive effects on the health of your heart as they help reduce your blood pressure, improve athletic performance, and improve and preserve blood vessel dysfunction. Fennel is a good source of vitamin A which is a fat-soluble vitamin which supports optimal immune function and keeps your eyes working well. It is also a good source of potassium which is a mineral needed to keep your blood pressure at a healthy level. Parmesan is a great addition as a stronger flavoured cheese and adds more protein to this meal as well as calcium to support strong bones and teeth. Calcium also plays an important role in keeping your muscles contracting normally. If you are stuck for inspiration for your next lunch or dinner this is a great choice.
