Good Mood Food Recipe - Lemon Ginger Salmon - Banner

Salmon is a good source of protein and Omega 3 fatty acids. It is thought that Omega 3 fatty acids feed the brain, enabling the neurotransmitters to flow more easily. Consequently these fatty acids are really important for helping to combat feeling of depression and anxiety, poor memory, and to balance hormones and improve positive thinking.

In addition to supporting brain function, Omega 3 fatty acids are also beneficial for other body functions, such as keeping our arteries healthy and keeping the immune system working.

The ginger is food for digestion, and a large mixed salad (or a portion of green vegetables) will complete the meal.
