Cobb Salad for Foodie Friday
Cobb Salad will be the first featured recipe on my new segment on the blog called “Foodie Friday”. Each week I will share a recipe with you all. I hope you find inspiration with these recipes and I look forward to hearing what you all think. Now on the the Cobb Salad.
Cobb Salad With a Twist
This week on my first Foodie Friday I will be featuring a super simple recipe that is a twist on the traditional Cobb Salad. Salads are amazing but can also get so boring. They are an easy way to add in some greens and extra vegetables into your day. However when you go on a salad/health kick they get old fast. This recipe is anything but boring and I hope you enjoy it as much and me and my family does.
Omega 3 Fatty Acids
This glorious Cobb Salad features a different source of protein and includes one of my favorite fatty fishes salmon. Omega 3s are essential nutrients that many of us are lacking. The key word here is essential as they can only be obtained through diet and not made within the body. I am a big fan of obtaining our nutrients within our food whenever possible. This is mainly due to the synergistic effect that occurs when vitamins and minerals are combined and not isolated. In other words vitamins and minerals often need each other in order to be digested and used more easily.
Getting In More Fish Is a Struggle
Getting in enough fish can be boring. This salad helps with that and provides a new and interesting way to add in your omega 3s. It may even help you overcome that salad rut you might be in.
