Salmon BLTs

Members of our weight management center are always looking for creative ways to infuse flavor into their low carb diets—and these Salmon BLTs fit the bill perfectly. Salmon is always an excellent choice for an entrée, as it’s packed with lean protein, which is essential for those on diets or weight loss management programs. A diet rich in lean protein helps us build lean muscle mass, which boosts our metabolism and the amount of calories we burn on a daily basis.

Salmon is also packed with other important nutrients that boost our health, including omega 3 fatty acids and essential amino acids, as well as vitamins such as A, B, B6, D and E. In addition, it contains appreciable amounts of minerals including iron, calcium, zine, phosphorus and magnesium. For the maximum health benefits, opt for wild-caught salmon.

All of the other ingredients are excellent choices for weight loss management—the lettuce is packed with fiber and the tomatoes boast lycopene and other antioxidant nutrients.
