How To Incorporate Salmon In Your Diet And Why You Need It!

By  | 

One of the most popular fish that you can come across as a health/fitness freak is salmon. This is not to be confused with a popular Indian star that people believe is a health and fitness freak but most certainly is not a fish. The Indian subcontinent is extremely lucky in terms of its fish produce, so you don’t have to worry about paying an astronomical sum to get your dose of salmon. Salmon is rich in omega-3-fatty acids, protein, vitamins, and minerals that help reduce the risk of several diseases, which explains the healthy bit. The flesh of the salmon is usually pink but can range between shades of red to orange. Whether you eat it raw in sushi, or as smoked salmon, having 2 servings of salmon each week is great to improve your overall health.
