Need help getting the recommended amount of 2 servings of fish per week? Here’s the easiest lunch to add to your weekly menu! We all know the health benefits of fish – it is packed with protein and healthy omega 3 fatty acids, which help to reduce inflammation in the body and promote a healthy heart.
Sometimes it can be easy to think we have to buy the expensive wild caught salmon filets or tuna steaks to get our fish in, but why not use canned or packed salmon to your advantage? It has all the benefits for less $$! I always keep salmon packets on hand in my pantry as an affordable and healthy staple. You can throw this dish together in a flash!
These delicious salmon lettuce cups are a great way to get your omega 3’s in as well as your veggies. Simple and easy to make! Great for a weekly lunch staple.
