  • What are the Benefits of Eating Salmon?

    Salmon is a popular food. Classified as an oily fish, salmon is high in protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamin D, and is therefore considered to be healthy. Salmon is also a source of cholesterol, with a range of 23–214 mg/100 g depending on the species.

    Do You Cut the Skin Off of the Salmon Before Grilling?

    First of all—skin is tasty! So when you’re cooking salmon, keep that skin on. It provides a safety layer between your fish’s flesh and a hot pan or grill. Start with the skin-side down, and let it crisp up. It’s much easier to slide a fish spatula under the salmon’s skin than under its delicate flesh. If you prefer no skin, that is great too! The skin can come off easily and still tastes and cooks just as great!

    Are Avocados Good For You?

    Also known as an alligator pear or butter fruit, the versatile avocado is the only fruit that provides a substantial amount of healthy monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA). Avocados are a naturally nutrient-dense food and contain nearly 20 vitamins and minerals.

    How Long Does the Avocado Salsa Last?

    This fresh salsa will last for a couple days in the fridge if stored in an airtight container. Over time, the tomatoes will release more juice and the avocado will begin to brown. It’ll be fine to eat, though!
