Getting Real on Ingredients: Salmon

Getting Real on Ingredients: Salmon

RealEats is a healthy prepared meal delivery service, created to make eating real food simple. Unlike other meal kits, RealEats cooks the meals for you, requiring no prep or cleanup. And, we don’t pack our meals full of junk and preservatives like other fast foods. We take our ingredients seriously.

Ready in 6 minutes or less, you can have healthy meals at the table made with fresh, seasonal, and never-processed ingredients.

Salmon takes the spotlight this month: Not only is it oh-so-delicious, but it is an excellent source of heart-healthy Omega-3 fatty acids, a lean quality protein, and loaded with B vitamins.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids

RealEats’ low-calorie and low-sodium Honey Soy Salmon made with Faroe Island salmon is chock full of heart-healthy omega-3 essential fatty acids (1441 mg in fact!). “Essential” means the nutrient must come from your diet, since your body can’t create them, and our meals are a tasty way to get your essential nutrients at dinner time.

Omega-3 fatty acids decrease inflammation, lower blood pressure, and improve the function of the cells that line your arteries.

At least two servings of salmon per week can help meet your omega-3 fatty acid needs, so why not also try our Salmon Rice Bowl or slow-roasted Cumin Lime Roasted Salmon for round 2?

Protein

Salmon is also a great source of lean protein, which is important for bone health and the prevention of muscle loss. According to recent studies, each meal should have at least 20–30 grams of high-quality protein. Each one of our Best Sellers featuring salmon has at least 30+ grams of protein, and often closer to 40 grams!

Vitamin B

Salmon contains a wide range of B vitamins including: thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, Vitamin B6, folic acid, and Vitamin B12. These are necessary for  reducing inflammation, protecting the heart and brain, as well as turning the food we eat into energy.
