Omega + C Orange Salmon Endives, 19.5 grams protein, 290 calories

IMG_3423The perfect winter lunch to pack in the nutrients and prevent the sniffles.  Endive is enriched with Vitamin A and ß-carotene, which have antioxidant properties. Carotenes convert to vitamin A inside the human body.  The orange delivers your vitamin C right in between the smoked salmon, which is high in omega fatty acids. All ingredients combined are sweet and moist, perfect for chewing.

  • 2 ounces skinless boneless smoked salmon
  • 4 Tablespoons Cream Cheese, with chives if possible
  • ½ naval orange
  • 4 endives slices


Peel and slice orange into small bits.  Reserve half in airtight container and refrigerate. Cut or tear salmon into small pieces. Peel off four endive slices from the bunch. Spread each slice with one tablespoon cream cheese.
Evenly divide the orange slices onto the cream cheese. Pack the salmon tightly in between the orange slices.  This is a perfect lunch to prepare the day before and take to work.   It is worth investing in a quality orange, so that it is sweet and juicy.  My favorite brand of smoked fish is available at Costco or Sam’s Club, “Paramount Reserve”
