Today’s catch is Air Fryer Spicy Salmon. We love a good salmon dinner because this delish fish is loaded with protein, potassium, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamin B12. In this recipe, we cut fresh salmon into cubes and soak it in a delectable marinate that combines cool Lifeway Kefir and spicy sriracha. Lifeway Kefir is a natural fit for sauces, dips, and marinades because of its full flavor and its rich and creamy consistency. We drop the salmon pieces into an air fryer, cook it for a few minutes, and then serve it in a bowl with jasmine rice, chopped cucumber, and sliced avocado. It’s a tasty, complete meal that’s easy to make and is loaded with nutrients.
Cultured Dairy: The Nutrition Benefits You Actually Need to Know
With increasing research linking the correlation between probiotics, gut health, and immunity, it’s no secret that the integrity of our gut is vital to our health. Although additional factors such as stress, antibiotic usage, and individual health conditions can contribute to the condition of our gut, a focus on healthy food choices is one of the easiest ways to support the microbiome.
Several studies have shown a strong association between the gut-brain-microbiota. Probiotics introduced to the gut have been found to support immunity, improve allergies, and improve digestion.
Studies have shown that reduced diversity of healthy gut bacteria during early years is associated with an increase in food allergies during school age years. In addition, kefir made from whole fat milk helps absorb key nutrients such as Vitamins A, D, E, and K. Vitamin K is important because it helps your bones absorb calcium. It’s important to know that kefir contains a special trio: vitamin D, K, and calcium – all three crucial elements to support bone health.
Prebiotics + Probiotics = a Healthy You
Prebiotics are non-living, non-digestible carbohydrates naturally found in a variety of foods. Your body actually can’t digest prebiotics, so they’re what probiotics feed off of to remain actively working in your digestive system. They help the digestive system by promoting the growth of good bacteria. Prebiotics and probiotics work together in balance to make sure our digestive system stays on track and regular. Research has found that consuming a variety of prebiotic and probiotic food sources may improve your body’s natural functions, including both your immune and digestive systems.
