A perfect meal to step into summer!29 May
Our Health Improvement Project Officer, Lizzie Mason, who is a qualified Nutritionist and registered with the Association for Nutrition, has put together a recipe fit for summer, packed full of flavour and fresh, nutritious ingredients for you to enjoy!
JERK BOWL WITH MANGO AND AVOCADO SALSA
Enjoy this meal as it is, or adapt the recipe to suit your dietary preferences. If you’re not vegetarian or vegan, salmon is the perfect choice to match the Jerk seasoning! Salmon (as well as other oily fish options) is a good source of Omega-3 fats which are essential for heart and brain health amongst other health benefits.
For vegetarian and vegan sources of Omega 3, try including walnuts, flax (linseed), hemp seeds, chia seeds and soya beans. Oils such as hemp, rapeseed and flaxseed oil provide essential Omega-3 fats and are preferable to corn or sunflower oils. Vegans may also want to consider taking an Omega-3 supplement if they do not regularly eat these foods and/ or during periods of development.
For an equally tasty meal, Lizzie suggests replacing the salmon with halloumi for a vegetarian option, or black beans for a vegan option for this recipe.
