Chargrilled Salmon with Pomegranate-Fig Sauce, Israeli Couscous and Honey Roasted Carrots
Salmon – Fatty fish like salmon are high in omega-3 fatty acids so are great choice for flavor and your health. “Fish is a good source of protein and, unlike fatty meat products, it’s not high in saturated fat. Fish is also a good source of omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids benefit the heart of healthy people, and those at high risk of — or who have — cardiovascular disease. Research has shown that omega-3 fatty acids decrease risk of arrhythmias (abnormal heartbeats), which can lead to sudden death. Omega-3 fatty acids also decrease triglyceride levels, slow growth rate of atherosclerotic plaque, and lower blood pressure (slightly).” American Heart Association
Pomegranate-fig sauce – Sweet figs with a tang of pomegranate, this delicious sauce will transport you to the sun soaked shores of the Mediterranean. Pomegranate is both delicious and has anti-inflammatory effects that may protect against cancer and other chronic diseases.
Israeli Couscous – Prepared using our home-made chicken stock and mixed with apricots, cherries, raisins, and red onion the couscous takes on the delicate notes of the all-natural flavorings. Couscous is not technically a grain, this combination of semolina wheat and water is actually more like pasta and is an excellent source of selenium. The major benefit of selenium is to prevent damage to cell structures like red blood cells. The mineral is also involved in our hormone metabolism and immune function and may protect against some forms of cancer. Dried fruit provides rich sources of dietary fiber and iron — particularly raisins and apricots. By replacing a few servings of fresh fruit a week with smaller portions of dried fruit, you can work to increase your intake of dietary fiber, potassium, iron, and antioxidants.
Honey Roasted Carrots – Carrots are tossed with olive oil and honey in this simple, all natural, and delicious side dish. Apart from being a natural sweetener our honey comes from bees that primarily collect nectar from clovers. Clover honey has antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. Because of honey’s high sugar content, it may seem counterintuitive for diabetics to eat it. However, studies have shown that honey has a beneficial effect on blood sugar levels in diabetics. A 2014 review article published in the “Journal of Diabetes & Metabolic Disorders” reported that several studies have found that honey, when used in conjunction with anti-diabetic drugs, actually improves glycemic control. Suggesting that honey does not affect the body the same way that traditional table sugar does.
