Food / Tuesday, April 13th, 2010

It’s Tuesday again and I still haven’t made anything different or extra special. I did real well the last 2 months when I used my food calendar but it is almost the middle of April and I have yet to get my menu set up for this month. I am looking to add one or two ‘new’ experiments meals for the month. Any ideas?

Even though Lent is now over, I’d like to share with you about my love for salmon and especially salmon locks. Check out what my wacky wonderful friend has to say about this this secret delicacy.

If the smell or thought of salmon makes you gag, check out Census Guy’s Blog anyway. You’ll find your spirits lifted by my friends unique sense of humor.

If you already love salmon or have the potential to like salmon you might like to know how incredibly healthy it is for moms and babies especially.

Nina Plank, author of Real Food: What to Eat and Why
Real Food for Mother and Baby: The Fertility Diet, Eating for Two, and Baby’s First Foods says the top baby food is wild salmon. “A 3.5 oz portion of wild sockeye salmon contains more than 1,200 milligrams of omega-3 fats. Cold-water, oily fish have more omega-3 faths thatn the white, flaky fish…”

Omega-3 fats are super ‘food’ for the brain.

“An excess of omega-6 fats or a defiency of omega-3 fats leads to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Most breast milk already meets and exceed the baby’s requirements for the omega-6 fat LA. Whether your’re nursing or not, the rule is simple: Eat more pink oil (salmon) and less yellow oil (corn).

The Brewers diet recommends pregnant woman should eat about 100 grams of high-quality protein from m eat, poultry, fish, eggs, and milk daily. Others pregnancy diets call for 75-100 grams a day.When you are pregnant, a whole can of salmon provides 45 grams of protein. Plus if you get the salmon cans with the tiny bones, you’re getting some good calcium along with the protein!

  1. YAY SALMON!!!!!!!!!!!! Goodness, our diets (and ideas on “health”) are sure similar at both our houses. We love salmon, fresh (well, frozen fillets) and canned and eat it often. I even have an uncle in Alaska who brings the real stuff freshly caught once in a blue moon. Anyways, I’m too lazy to post anything specifically, but go to my blog and click on the “RECIPES” tag on the right sidebar, and I have some of our family faves if you’re looking for variations in your meal planning.
