Grilled Pesto Salmon Kebabs

Sunday, 10 May 2015 00:00  by Kristi C.

With spring in the air, many people are beginning to fire up the grill and move the kitchen out to the pool. What better way to get your daily dose of Vitamin D than to spend some time under the sun? While Vitamin D comes from the sun, Vitamin B comes from the good foods that we cook. Foods rich in Vitamin B include tuna, turkey, beef, chicken, salmon, sweet potato, potatoes, spinach, and bananas with many of them being well suited to grilling.

Vitamin B is important to a woman’s overall health with deficiencies showing through symptoms such as anemia, fatigue, depression, hair loss, muscle cramping, loss of appetite, and numbness and tingling in the arms and legs.

If you are looking for a great recipe to add some Vitamin B to your diet that is perfect for warm weather grilling (to add some additional Vitamin D), check out the recipe below for Grilled Pesto Salmon Kebabs created by Emily Miller of The Daily Burn.

Remember, nutritious food can lessen the effects of depression and anxiety while boosting your energy level and improving your mood and your overall mental health.

Ingredients

For Pesto:

  • 1 cup fresh basil, packed

  • 1/2 clove garlic

  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
