Salmon, Scallops And Paiche

Eating salmon increases your cardiovascular health. Salmon contains high levels of the omega-3 fats, EPA and DHA.  When eaten two to three times per week, salmon can protect you from problems such as heart attack, stroke, arrhythmia, high blood pressure and high triglycerides.

Scallops are the new power food. Scallops are more than 80 percent protein. One 3-ounce serving provides 20 grams of protein and just 95 calories. They’re also a good source of both magnesium and potassium.
