    In the photo you can see broccoli. Other vegetables can be: artichokes, bell peppers, brussels sprouts ...

Healthy eating

  • - It is wrong to accompany salmon with pulses. As you can see salmon is a source of protein as pulses are. Unfortunately in Italian cuisine but also all over the world there are a lot of recipes in which meat or fish are combined with pulses. Make this combination seldom if you follow a healthy diet.
