Nourishing Keto Zone Salmon Chowder

Do you get enough omega-3’s?

Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to benefit the health of the heart, the brain, and the immune system.

Unfortunately, most people who consume the Standard American Diet (SAD) consume way too many omega-6 fats and not nearly enough omega-3s.

Omega-6 fatty acids are inflammatory when consumed in excess. These fats are found abundantly in industrial vegetable and seed oils like canola, peanut, soy, safflower, cottonseed, and grapeseed.

These oils are commonly used in typical American restaurant food. So if you eat out often,  you are likely consuming way too much omega-6 fat.

In order to prevent the inflammatory response from omega-6 consumption it is important to balance out omega-6 intake with more omega-3 intake.

One of the single best sources of healthy bioavailable omega-3 fatty acids is wild caught salmon.

That is why we are sharing this easy and delicious salmon chowder recipe. It is low-carb Keto Zone approved and can even be made dairy-free with coconut oil and coconut milk!
