Salmon with sweet potatoes on spinach

Healthy food does not have to be complicated! Even with few ingredients, you can conjure up a great fitness food in no time! The ingredients should be as natural as possible and at the same time very nutritious. It is important that the ingredients contain both the macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates and fats) in balanced proportion as well as many micronutrients (vitamins and minerals). Today's court definitely covers all these criteria and the preparation is very easy. :)

1 piece (125 g) Stremell salmon
100 g fresh spinach leaves
150 g sweet potato
1 tbsp coconut oil
salt and pepper

1. Peel sweet potato and cut into small cubes. Heat the coconut oil in a frying pan and sauté the sweet potato pieces on all sides for about 10 minutes, turning them over several times, seasoning with salt and pepper.
2. At the end of the cooking time, add the fresh spinach to the pan until it disintegrates.
3. Serve spinach and sweet potato cubes with the Stremelachs on a plate. (Stremellachs are hot smoked salmon, so this salmon can be consumed immediately.)
4. This dish proves that with only a few ingredients you can prepare a super healthy meal in only three steps! For the complete preparation you only need about 10 minutes and you supply your body with almost all important nutrients!

Sweet potatoes are rich in manganese, folate, copper and iron as well as in vitamins C, B2, B6 and E and H. In addition, the starchy vegetables regulate our blood sugar levels, act as stress killers and even protect the heart. You can find more about this in my article fitnessfood sweet potato.

Spinach also contains many important vitamins and minerals, e.g. Iron. The iron content is not quite as high as originally thought (guilt was a comma error), but the nutrient density can still be seen! In addition, the chlorophyll contained in the spinach (whereby the leaves are so beautiful green) acts as a true fountain of youth. Chlorophyll acts as a natural antioxidant, fighting free radicals and thus detoxifies. In addition, it is helpful for healthy blood formation and our body can thereby better utilize other nutrients.

Salmon contains a high proportion of polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are involved in numerous reactions of the body's cells and are less stored in body fat than fats with high levels of saturated fat. The consumption of salmon also has a positive effect on our cholesterol level: The harmful LDL cholesterol decreases, while the level of "good" HDL cholesterol increases. In addition, these fatty acids are said to have antihypertensive and anti-inflammatory properties.
