Smoked salmon chive jacket potato

Comfort food with a good dose of  Omega 3

A jacket potato is a classic go-to meal. This recipe is one to save as it will add more health benefits than the traditional potato stuffed with cheese option. Starting with the quality salmon from Safcol, the salmon will add delicious flavour as well as adding a good dose of healthy omega 3 fat for heart, brain, and artery health. Omega 3 fat is an anti-inflammatory fat and may help reduce symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.

Potatoes are often seen as unhealthy but when they are in their whole form, they are a highly nutritious vegetable providing fibre, vitamin C and folate.

Extra virgin olive oil is the king oil as it contains over 36 different antioxidants as well as another cholesterol promoting fat called monounsaturated fat.

All the vegetables and apple add fibre to support healthy gut function and increase the satiety factor of the meal. Chives are a great source of immune-supporting vitamins A and C. Onions with their antioxidant called quercetin to add more support to help your immune system work at its best. Carrots add more vitamin A. Vitamin A plays other roles including supporting your eyes to function at their best.  Lemon juice, the apple and cabbage add more vitamin C. Vitamin C is also needed to make collagen, this protein is needed for healthy ligaments, tendons as well as supporting the health of your skin. There are so many health benefits within this simple meal so make sure you save it for the next time you are in the mood for a stuffed potato.
