Ginger Honey Salmon and Roast Vegetables Bowl

This Ginger Honey Salmon and Roast Vegetables Bowl is the perfect feel good meal for lazy days. In essence it is a recipe that requires little effort. We all know that salmon is really good for us but it isn’t my favourite fish and so admittedly I eat it very rarely! So you know this has got to be good if it has been on repeat for the last few weeks.

Honey Salmon and Roast Vegetables Bowl

We love these Ginger Honey Salmon and Roast Vegetables Bowl because as amazing as they look, they are really easy to make. Don’t we all want to eat something that’s good for us but also easy to make? The fish and vegetables are delicious but I always think bowl food always tastes that extra bit special. Basically bowls are life!

So what’s good about salmon? Say hello to loads of protein, healthy fats, selenium, B vitamins, vitamin D and more. It also reduces inflammation and overall brain health. It is great for overall wellness and fantastic for bone and joint health. 

As for the vegetables – take your pick of vegetables and roast them. I use tender stem broccoli, asparagus tips, mushrooms and peppers. It took me a while to get into broccoli and asparagus but the health benefits really swung it for me. Broccoli alone includes vitamins K and C, is a good source of folate (folic acid) and also provides potassium and fiber. 

Broccoli is a Cruciferous vegetable. Cruciferous vegetables are vegetables that belong to the Brassicaceae family of plants. These vegetables tend to be ow in calories and are jam packed with nutrients. They are usually high in vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin K as well as dietary fiber.

Cruciferous vegetables also contain sulfur containing compounds called glucosinolates, which have cancer fighting properties. They have also been linked to a long list of health benefits, including improved heart health, increased weight loss and reduced inflammation.

So basally eat all the broccoli and make this Ginger Honey Salmon and Roast Vegetables Bowl!

There are a number of other vegetables that belong in the Cruciferous Vegetables group but Rocket and Broccoli are my faves and I have begun to incorporate them into my daily diet.
