Supergrain Salmon & Kale Bowl

Another quick and easy salmon recipe to add to your repertoire! We try and have salmon twice a week as it is loaded with brain boosting omega-3 fatty acids. Our bodies are unable to produce omega-3’s so you have to get this nutrient from your diet. Low levels of omega-3s may accelerate brain aging, contribute to poor mental health and impair brain function.
