Salmon is a fantastic source of essential fatty acids, the healthy fats. Quinoa is a wonderful protein and carbohydrate. Quinoa is high in amino acids, calcium, iron, phosphorous, potassium, sodium rich, zinc, vitamins: B1, B2, B3, B6, E, and fiber. I like to soak quinoa overnight, or for a few hours before cooking. We could live on salmon, it is my favourite source of healthy fat.
