Smoked Salmon Breakfast Idea

I love having smoked salmon for breakfast, it’s high in protein, low in calories, and it offers so many nutrients essential for PCOS cysters like myself. Salmon is full of healthy Omega-3 fatty acids which help to reduce inflammation and lower blood pressure, it’s chock full of protein, low in saturated fat, AND ITS DELICIOUS.  Here’s the recipe for this high protein and healthy fat breakfast!

Smoked Salmon Avocado “Toast”:
On top of 1 wasa sourdough crisp bread I placed:
1 ounce of wild sockeye salmon
1/4 avocado mashed
1 teaspoon hemp seeds
Sprinkle of salt and red cayenne pepper
On the side I added 1 large poached egg over a bed of arugula topped with paprika, salt, and red cayenne pepper

Nutrition Information:
Calories: 262
Protein: 16.4g
Total Carbs: 8.3g
Sugars: 1.3g
Fiber: 8.9g
Total Fat: 15g
(I calculate Nutrient Information using the app “Lose It”)

Though this breakfast is low in calories it really keeps me full throughout the day. Having healthy fats with your meals (like avocado) really helps improve the satiety of each meal and I find eating smoked salmon keeps me full for longer than most meats even though it’s lower in calories – just another great reason to start your day with something fishy!
