Dr Jockers Comments:
This recipe is incredibly tasty and extraordinarily healthy. This is truly low-carb and loaded with healthy fats. Be sure to get your salmon “wild-caught Alaskan or Pacific” as all Atlantic salmon is farmed. Also, make sure you get organic zucchini as non-organic varieties may be genetically modified.
Wild-caught Alaskan salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and the powerful anti-oxidant astaxanthin that improves vision and energy levels. Pastured butter has more omega-3 fatty acids and CLA which is key for hormones and metabolism. Coconut oil provides tons of healthy saturated fats that improve energy and metabolism as well. Leeks are rich in sulfur compounds which help the body to detoxify and heal.
