Steamed Salmon with Fresh Herbs and Lemon

Steamed salmon may seem an odd breakfast choice, but try it! Packed with omega-3 fatty acids (good for your brain), salmon is rich in antioxidants (particularly anti-inflammatory carotenoids) and selenium. The protein will keep you full and energized for hours.
