It’s now the end of February and for those who have stuck to their new year’s health goals but are bored with their eating plans, we have a healthy recipe to shake things up!

Recipe:
1 Toasted Naan (Indian flat bread)
2 Tablespoons Avocado
1 Large Egg White
2 Oz Smoked Salmon

Cutting the fat from your diet can be detrimental to your overall health. More than 60% of the brain is made of fat. Healthy fats, like Omega 3, also play an essential role in lowering cholesterol & the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease. Keep in mind though, that there are key differences between getting healthy fats from salmon and avocado and unhealthy fats from things like enriched bread, cheese, & fried foods.

Take a look at the nutrition facts below and why you should eat Naan bread:

Bagel & Cream Cheese

  • 365 Calories
  • 55g Carbs
  • 12g Protein
  • 12g Fat

Naan Toast

  • 284 Calories
  • 22g Carbs
  • 18g  Protein
  • 12g Fat

Not only do you get close to 100 calories less with the Naan toast, but you get more food. There are also less carbs, which contain the sugars in food that packs on the pounds and more protein which will keep you feeling full longer throughout the day. The fats are the same, but the sources of fat in the Naan toast are packed with omega 3 fatty acid, a polyunsaturated fat. The fat in the bagel & cream cheese is mainly saturated fat with no healthful value.

Enjoy!
