Last week, we gave you a recipe that was great for using up the last of your kale and butternut squash for the week. This baked salmon with sweet potatoes and kale is another great way to incorporate more greens into your diet while also meeting omega-3 fatty acid needs!
This meal is packed with vitamins, minerals, healthy fats, lean protein, and carbohydrates. The best part? It comes together in about 40 minutes and includes a tangy marinade.
As you may know, salmon is considered a lean protein packed with healthy fats like omega-3 fatty acids. These fatty acids help promote regular function throughout the body and support brain function throughout life. The kale and sweet potatoes are filled with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that help fight inflammation and the onset of chronic disease.
You can serve the dish as is, or pair it with a serving of roasted brussels sprouts for added fiber and micronutrients.
We’re really embracing in-season produce.
