As the weather starts to warm up and we have more opportunity to be outdoors, one of my favorite outdoor activities is grilling. Well where I live I grill year round even in the rain, the food just tastes so much better. The power of the sun and the outdoors does wonders for our brains, and another good brain food is fish, salmon in particular. A great source of omega-3s (helps with cardio health) great source of protein, high in B vitamins, and antioxidants. Keeping our bodies healthy, helping the blood flow to our brains, much of what our body crave while becoming more active and spending more time outdoors. So do yourself a favor and try this recipe, a delicious way to nourish your body and in turn savor your soul.
