These Salmon Lettuce Wraps are again a recipe I found in “Clean Eating” magazine. This recipe is delicious. What I really like about it, it’s filling yet it doesn’t give you a heavy bloated feeling like when you eat something heavy or greasy. It’s light and yummy! I can’t wait to make this recipe again.
Salmon has many health benefits. It’s rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. Salmon is one of the best sources of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids. It’s a great source of protein, high in vitamin B, good source of potassium and loaded with selenium. Here are some health benefits to mango I didn’t know. Mango helps is digestion, promotes healthy gut, boosts immunity, promotes eye health, and helps lower cholesterol. Avocado is loaded with heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids. I also learned that studies suggest cilantro can help remove heavy metals from your body. This is big since most people are unknowingly exposed to heavy metals on a regular basis. Here is the recipe!
