Heart-healthy food tip: The key com­po­nents of your nour­ish plate are a healthy car­bo­hy­drate source (like quinoa, brown rice, pota­to or corn ker­nels), a pro­tein source (tofu, chick­en, salmon, tuna, roast meats) and lots of healthy whole food fat sources (avo­ca­do, nuts and seeds).

The key is ensuring you add delicious flavours like feta, olive, sun-dried tomatoes, vinegar, aioli, fresh herbs, spices and aromatics like onion or garlic.



  1. Step 1

    Cook the quinoa per packet instructions, then set aside.

  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, serve all ingredients onto a plate. You can mix the ingredients together or keep them separate depending on your preference.

  3. Step 3

    Cook salmon as appropriate, then serve crumbled over the plate.

  4. Step 4

    Drizzle the plate with red wine vinegar and serve. Enjoy!
