Smoked Salmon & Asparagus Frittata
Smoked salmon contains protein, B vitamins, magnesium, and selenium as well as being full of the anti-inflammatory omega 3 which counteracts the inflammatory response that causes the pain, discomfort and degradation within the joints. Eggs are a great source of zinc which is also necessary for the synthesis of various proteins found in the bone. It is important to try to pair calcium-rich foods with sources of vitamin D (goat’s cheese) and magnesium. Vitamin D is vital for getting adequate amounts of calcium (eggs & goat’s cheese) into the bloodstream and magnesium (salmon) helps the body incorporate calcium into the bones.
