Salmon is a great source of lean protein. The omega-3s are great for your skin too. This is because it helps reduce inflammation in the body. Inflammation can lead to a breakdown in collagen and elastin, which keeps our skin looking so youthful.

Salmon is such a wonderful fish to customize with your favorite seasonings. The perfect easy lunch!
