Healthy Homemade Salmon and Spinach Dinner


Healthy homemade salmon and spinach dinner

The benefits of eating salmon are:

We all know that fish is known as brain food (even though they say fish are forgetful!) and it’s an excellent source of vitamin B12, vitamin D, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin B6. It’s also a great way to add  a source of protein to your diet, especially if you’re a non meat eater.

How to cook salmon:

Simply put it on foil and cook in the oven on around gas mark 6 / 180 degrees for 15-20 minutes. It’s your choice if you marinate it with some kind of sauce like soy sauce or salt and pepper to add flavour to it. I personally try not to add anything extra to it when I buy it from the fish counter in the supermarket but sometimes I buy the ready marinated packets (as shown in the image above).

The benefits of eating spinach are:

The first thing that comes to mind is spinach is a great source of iron – to make you strong like Popeye! It’s also a good source of vitamins A, C, K, calcium and potassium amongst others.

How to cook spinach:

Eat raw or fry for 2-3 minutes in a pan in coconut or olive oil, remove excess water and serve.

The above information is just what I have learnt from doing my own research during my healthy lifestyle journey, please look into the health benefits of these foods for yourself as I am by no means a nutritionist…YET! 😉
