Salmon abd pak choi

Salmon and other oily fish are great staples for healthy living. A rich source of Omega-3 fatty acids, they have been found to help fight off cardiovascular disease, prostate cancer, age-related vision loss and dementia. Salmon is also a good source of vitamin D, protein, some B vitamins and selenium, all of which help us to be bolder and wiser as we get older.
