This is one of my favorite meals! It is quick, easy, and delicious. Loaded in healthy omega 3 fatty acids and nutrient dense biocompounds, it is a great addition to your weekly meal plan. Capers and red onions are high in quercetin, a powerhouse nutrient that has multiple benefits including stabilization of immune cells and promotion of gastrointestinal tight junctions. Dill is also a great herb offering many micronutrients and has even been shown to help in the management of blood glucose levels!
1 slice of Gluten Free Bread (using bread has fewer carbs than 1/2 bagel)
2 tbsp Cream Cheese (organic)
3 oz Smoked Salmon (lox)
1 tsp Capers
3 rings Red Onion
1 tsp dill (chopped)
Toast bread (or bagel) *If you are limiting carbs using a slice of gluten free bread in place of a bagel will cut carbs from 30 to 15 grams.
Mix cream cheese and dill well and spread on bread.
Add capers and onions then top with smoked salmon.
