But please don’t write off salmon for good. Or broccoli for that matter. This recipe for shaved fennel herb salad over wild salmon is one of those recipes that’s inadvertently ‘healthy’- a byproduct of really good flavors and cooking methods together. It’s technically gluten free, pescetarian friendly and of course it boasts all of the major health benefits of fish. Like the fact that according to a UCLA study, people who eat fish frequently have a 14% larger brain hippocampus (for memory and learning).
Or that regular fish eaters are 20% less likely than others to suffer from depression, and it’s such strong evidence that the American Psychiatric Association lists fatty acids found in fish as an ‘effective part of depression treatment’.
And the American Heart Association also came out again in 2018 reaffirming that you definitely should be eating two servings of fish each week for heart health.
