Honey Glazed Salmon with Citrus Avocado Salsa

Honey Glazed Salmon with Citrus Avocado Salsa

The month of January is all about starting new resolutions and becoming healthier. To help us keep up those healthy habits, we have American Heart Month in February. It is a great time to remind us how important our hearts are to keeping our bodies healthy and happy. An important part of keeping our hearts healthy is adding more oh-so important omega-3 fatty acids to our diet.

Did you know that heart disease is currently the leading cause of death in the United States, with over 800,000 lives lost each year?  According to the American Heart Association, one of the simplest preventive measures Americans can take to protect their heart health is to eat fish high in omega-3s, like heart-smart salmon, at least twice a week.
