This recipe is packed with some of my favorite ultimate health foods. the salmon is a wonderful source of superb healthy fats; omega-3 fatty acids, the lemon rind contains one of the most powerful anti cancer nutrient called limonene; cinnamon is a superb herb to help prevent diabetes and the lemon juice, which is acidic, will lower the glycemic index of this meal so that you will not get a spike in insulin thus you will feel energized and well satiated. And finally, the pineapple contains digestive enzymes to help your body digest and absorb all of these fabulous nutrients!
