So what do you think about this recipe? Do you also fancy trying it? Because I know I do.

Dietitian Sian Porter says: “This delicious bowl is full of heart healthy ingredients. Essential fatty acids DHA and EPA in the salmon contribute to the normal function of the heart, maintaining healthy blood pressure and triglyceride levels*.

The essential omega-3 fatty acid ALA in the California Walnuts helps maintain normal blood cholesterol levels*. The veg, beans, wholegrains and California Walnuts are packed with fibre which is associated with a lower risk of both cardiovascular disease and coronary heart disease.

This bowl provides over one third (10.7g) of the UK adult daily fibre recommendation (30g) and 3 portions of vegetables per serving (3 of your ‘5 a day’).”
