Salmon is a mediterranean favorite. It is a great source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids, which support both brain and heart health by reducing inflammation within the body. Seafood also contains a lot of important micronutrients such as immune-boosting vitamin D.

Aim to eat two servings of seafood per week in order to get adequate omega-3 fatty acids.While omega-3 fatty acids are found in plant-based foods like chia seeds and walnuts, the form found in plants isn't easily converted to the active, beneficial form within our bodies. For this reason, focusing on fish intake each week is important for your health. If you are vegetarian, consider taking an omega-3 fatty acid supplement but always speak to your doctor first before starting a new supplement!

This chicken is delicious and so satisfying! The blend of spices are what make this chicken so flavorful. The Mediterranean Diet emphasizes big flavors through the use of a variety of spices, fresh herbs and seasonings. In addition to adding a ton of flavor, using spices, herbs and seasonings reduces the amount of salt needed to flavor a dish.

To make this a complete meal, serve this chicken with your favorite whole grain like brown rice, farro or quinoa, and a vegetable side like a big green salad or steamed broccoli.
