Salmon + Kale BOWL

This is a great dish for anyone looking to avoid an insulin spike and keep weight down.  It's filling without being junky. The monounsaturated and omega 3 fats in the salmon, avocado and pine nuts provide a satiated feeling without the bloating or excess calories. These healthy fats also work to slow down the absorption of blood sugars. 

If you're an athlete, this is a great salad to have on rest days since it's very low in carbohydrates but still has a moderate amount of protein. 

Remember, you can always add or take away any ingredients as you please. For example: you can replace pine nuts with almonds or pecans, depending on taste preference or availability. Or, if wild caught salmon is not available in your area, use another type of wild caught fish or clean protein of choice.
