Yoga Refresh Challenge

Hi Everyone! It’s the third day of my all new Yoga Refresh Challenge, and today, I will be giving you a look at one of the quick and healthy DELICIOUS recipes that are included! (If you aren’t yet a DeniseAustin.com Member, start your free trial today for access to this all new 7-Day Yoga Refresh Challenge – it includes a daily yoga workout, a tasty recipe and inspirations from me!).

This recipe is a favorite of mine, not only because it tastes great and is super easy to make, but because it is so healthy too! It includes some of my favorite healthy foods:

  • Salmon. It is an excellent source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids, which are unsaturated fatty acids that are good for you heart, joints and more. Plus salmon is good for your skin! And canned salmon, which is used in this recipe, offers up a good dose of calcium – important for women’s health.
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil. This oil provides more heart-healthy fat of any edible oil, making it my oil of choice for cooking and eating. It also has antioxidants, which can help protect against cancer and promote heart health. A win-win!
  • Leafy Greens. I use leafy greens as often as I can. The fiber they provide helps fill you up (and keeps you regular), and they also provide vitamins and nutrients our bodies need to stay healthy and active!

This salmon salad recipe is a go-to in my house when we want a quick and healthy lunch, so give it a try – I hope you like it! And for more quick and healthy recipes, plus access to my all new 7-Day Yoga Refresh Challenge, start your free trial of my 10-Week Plan today!
