Looking for a quick and healthy salmon recipe? Well, lucky for all of us, Goodful has done it once again with this delicious sesame salmon and orange slaw recipe!

This one is high in protein, low in carbs, very high in Omega 3 fatty acids, and literally loaded with vitamins and minerals.

Why should you care? Here’s why!

For starters, protein can help you keep your metabolic rate higher and minimize losses in muscle mass, is the most thermogenic of the three macronutrients, which means that eating more protein will result in more calories being burned for digestion and absorption, and is very satiating, which means that you’ll feel full for longer when eating protein at every meal and will be less likely to overeat.

Regarding Omega 3 fatty acids, research has shown that the omega 3 from fish can positively influence your health, as they can help lower blood levels of triglycerides, fight off depression, increase HDL-C (a.k.a. the ‘good’ cholesterol), and even reduce inflammation and blood pressure!

Finally, vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients and other micronutrients found in fruits and veggies are hugely important for health, training performance and muscle growth. It’s also worth noting that research suggests that micronutrient deficiencies may contribute to the development of obesity.
