For our inaugural Healthy Recipe of the Month, Dr. Brandon is sharing one of his favorites --- actually, he's giving us two recipes this time, so we get a bonus!
Salmon is an excellent source of several vitiamins and minerals - which can help "extend lifespan, avoid heart attacks and fight cancer" (Source: https://draxe.com/8-salmon-nutrition-facts-proven-health-benefits/ ). Asparagus, also, is packed with vitamins, antioxidents, is a great source of fiber and is a natural diuretic. Let us know what you think ... Bon apetit!
