Smoked Salmon

It's probably the single best muscle-building food on the planet. That includes red meat, despite its reputation as a magical muscle builder.

Salmon is chock-full of anti-inflammatory omega-3's and the antioxidant astaxanthin, the king of carotenoids. Along with its ability to fight inflammation, it's been shown to improve cognition, improve immune function, and reduce oxidative stress.

Salmon is a can't-miss food, especially the smoked kind, which is great by itself or perfect with a couple of eggs.

There's some debate over wild caught or farm raised when it comes to nutritional value. Wild caught salmon has a better nutritional profile than farm raised salmon if you're basing it off the omega-3 to omega-6 ratio, but people who get overly emotional about this topic are being drama queens.

Farm-raised salmon typically has more 3's than wild caught does; it's just that it packs more of the omega 6's too. If you're singling out salmon based on this factor alone then you're throwing the salmon out with the farm water. It's mostly irrelevant.

The real issue with farm raised is that it often contains high concentrations of organochlorine compounds such as PCBs, dioxins, and chlorinated pesticides. But that can vary wildly based on the geographical area where the salmon came from (2).

If you're one of those "I only eat organic, grass fed, wheat germ, non-GMO, gluten free" people, then get the wild caught salmon, you diva. If not, just get some packaged smoked salmon regardless of whether it's wild caught or farm raised and enjoy your life.
