SALMON IS ONE of those protein foods that you already know is good for you. But do you know just how good? Here, study up:

  • Salmon packs some pretty serious protein (25g per serving), yet it’s low in the unhealthy saturated fat that plagues many other hardcore protein sources.
  • Salmon also protects against heart disease, thanks to omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to do everything from decrease triglyceride levels to lower blood pressure.
  • Some even call salmon a “brain food”—research has shown the fatty acids DHA and EPA may boost your memory and cognition.
