Salmon is a good source of protein and biotin, which ensure a firm and slim silhouette. The pseudo grain quinoa scores with plenty of protein, fiber as well as the trace element iron, which is needed, among other things, for the transport of oxygen in the blood.

For even more healthy omega-3 fatty acids, sprinkle a few walnut kernels over the finished dish. Outside the kale season, the dish also tastes really delicious with spinach.
