Dr Clayton says

The ingredients in this recipe have strongly cardio-protective properties.

Salmon contains significant levels of the valuable cardio-protective Omega 3 oils; oats have been shown to lower total blood cholesterol; olive oil lowers the level of ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol; and eggs increase the level of ‘good’ HDL cholesterol.

The carotenoids in the eggs and salmon (the deeper the colour, the higher the carotenoid content), and the flavonoids in olive oil have anti-cancer and anti-oxidant properties.

The live natural yoghurt contains probiotic bacteria that help protect against gastro-intestinal infection.

Oats contain beta glucans, an excellent pre-biotic that protects the lower bowel and liver.

If you use wholemeal bread for the breadcrumbs, you will be adding dietary fibre, as well as B vitamins, calcium and magnesium.
