Grilled Mackerel with Beetroot Salad

This grilled mackerel salad is great for supporting joint issues due to mackerel’s high levels of the essential fatty acid Omega 3. EFA’s are important to the nutritional strategy for joint diseases such as Osteoarthritis because they regulate the inflammatory responses within the body. The goat’s cheese is a great source of calcium which can be helpful in preventing diseases such as osteoporosis and osteomalacia.
