Eating small amounts of protein with every meal can work wonders for helping you stay satisfied. When we eat protein-rich foods, they signal our bodies to release hormones that tell us we’re full. But we know you don’t have time to roast a turkey or ham every day. Canned salmon is a quick, easy, and convenient protein source. Just one small 3.5-ounce can of pink salmon offers up an impressive 20 grams of protein. It's also packed with beneficial omega-3 fats and is way lower in mercury than canned tuna. Try topping this on salads or combine with chopped veggies and a dab of canola mayo in a sandwich. Or, check out the recipe below.
