Salmon is an incredibly healthy ingredient to add to your diet. Not only it's packed with proteins - a with a single portion covering 35% of your RDI - but it's also rich in omega-3. These essential long-chain fatty acids are true health booster as they can help with your blood pressure, fats and cholesterol levels, and inflammation in your body. Imagine that 100g (3.5oz) of salmon gives you four times the recommended amount of omega-3 in a day .
Peas boost this meal with fibres, which help you feel full for longer and consume fewer calories throughout the day. Also, to replace butter, creme fraiche, and single cream, we blended soft garden peas into a no-dairy pasta sauce, perfect for people with lactose intolerance or dairy allergy.
The result is a fully balanced meal in a single bowl, with the right amount of carbs, proteins and vegetables. A serving gives you 70% of your recommended daily intake (RDI) for proteins and 25% of your RDI for fibres, all in 500 calories. Amazing!
