Try some tasty seafood on a budget! This nutritious salmon salad will quickly become a lunchtime favorite. Make the filling ahead to pile on salad or roll into a wrap for a quick and easy lunch.

Canned salmon is one of the most underrated and affordable protein sources you can find. Plus, it’s one of the best ways to eat more omega-3 fats. These healthy fats are important for brain development during pregnancy and chest/breastfeeding; they also promote healthy skin, vision, and circulation.

Salmon is also a low-mercury fish, which means it’s safe to eat while you’re pregnant or nursing. It’s recommended that pregnant people eat two to three servings of low-mercury seafood each week.
