Salmon is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are great for bone and joint health as well as brain function. Pair that with some collagen-boosting ingredients, such as lemon, sweet potato, kale, and avocado, and you’ve got yourself a great anti-aging meal!

Serves: 2 Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients:

1 cup quinoa, cooked
1 12-oz. piece of wild-caught salmon
2 slices of lemon
1 sweet potato, chopped
2 cups kale
1 shallot, chopped
1 avocado, pitted and sliced

For the vinaigrette:

1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
½ tbsp. red wine vinegar
2 garlic cloves, chopped
Juice of ½ lemon
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 scoop collagen peptides
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. (204°C).
  2. On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, add the sweet potatoes and
    bake for 30 minutes, or until tender.
  3. On a separate baking sheet lined with parchment paper, place the salmon skin
    side down, drizzle with olive oil and shallots, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and
    add lemon slices. Add to the oven when the sweet potatoes have roughly 12
    minutes left.
  4. Add all the ingredients for the dressing in a high-speed blender, blending until
    combined. Place in the fridge until ready to use.
