Fish a great source of protein to help keep you feeling full for longer.

Burritos at breakfast, who can say no to that? On top of the delicious taste of the burritos, the nutrition benefits are also top standard. Starting with the star of the meal the Safcol Premium Smoked Salmon. Not only is this fish a great source of protein to help keep you feeling full for longer but provides other health benefits. This includes omega 3 fat which helps your brain and heart stay healthy. It is an anti-inflammatory fat and may assist with conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis. The red or pink colour of salmon is due to the antioxidant called astaxanthin. This antioxidant helps to lower your ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol and raise your ‘good’ HDL cholesterol.

Avocados are not only trendy but are good for you too. They provide another type of healthy fat called monounsaturated fat. This fat, like omega 3 fat, helps your cholesterol stay in a healthy level of more ‘good’ HDL cholesterol and less ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol and triglycerides. On top of that avocadoes have more potassium than a banana! A bonus if you want to keep your blood pressure healthy. The delicious cherry tomatoes contain an antioxidant called lycopene which helps your heart stay healthy and for the gentlemen help to keep your prostate healthy.

When it comes to grains and cereals whole grain is king over refined varieties. The wholegrain tortillas will add more fibre than refined grains to keep you fuller for longer and your gut healthy and happy. Also, B vitamin which is needed for your body to make energy from the food which you eat.

This meal will optimise your immune system with the quercetin, a flavanol compound in the onion and the vitamin C in the lime juice. The extra virgin olive oil will add more monounsaturated fat to the meal but also helps keep your body fighting fit with over 36 different antioxidants. Can someone please pass me a smoked salmon breakfast burrito?
