Cooking Tip

Wild salmon versus fresh salmon? The major differences between the two are: cost, taste, color, and sustainability. Wild salmon is more expensive, tends to have a richer flavor, deeper color, and higher omega-3 content due to its natural diet. Try buying frozen salmon from Costco and defrosting when ready to use.



Performance Fact

One serving of salmon is not only an excellent source of protein but also provides a full day’s requirement of vitamin D. Salmon is also high in omega-3 fatty acids, which have anti- inflammatory properties. Red cabbage is high in antioxidants that reduce inflammation and boost brain function.
