Maple Grilled Salmon

Protein-Packed Fish

Salmon is an ideal source of protein (not to mention heart-healthy omega-3 fats). Serve with steamed veggies and brown rice to complete the meal with healthy carbohydrates and energy-producing B vitamins. Protein-rich salmon, along with fiber from vegetables and brown rice, will keep you satisfied to help avoid late-night munching. Leftovers can be served atop a salad for tomorrow’s lunch.
