Wild-caught salmon is a great food to have as a staple protein source in your diet. Salmon are one of the strongest living beings in the world. They are the only fish that swims upstream, against the strong currents, and they can jump 10-20 feet out of the water.
What gives them this incredible strength and how can we get some of that? Wild-caught salmon eat red algae that is rich in omega 3 fatty acids and the powerful anti-oxidant astaxanthin. These compounds are transferred into the fish and into us when we consume them. Diets high in long-chain omega 3 fatty acids and astaxanthin have been shown to improve brain function, energy, strength, performance and recovery.
Nori is a sea vegetable that is rich in iodine and trace minerals that are great for our metabolism and help our body produce energy. Avocado and cucumber are great anti-aging foods that boost our energy and improve the function of our skin.
My wife and I love the new primal mayo that uses avocado oil instead of grapeseed or the typical corn and soy oil that are common in most mayo’s on the market.
This mayo does have eggs, so if you are looking to avoid eggs such as if you are following our autoimmune elimination or digestive health programs, than you can substitute with coconut oil or softened coconut butter.
