Salmon Chowder

I love chowders, and this one is quick and easy to make. Salmon is one of the best fish sources of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fat, an essential fat that supports gut health. The added bonus? Kids love it, too!

This recipe is from - The Secret Life of Your Microbiome - Why Nature and Biodiversity are Essential to Health and Happiness (www.newsociety.com/Books/S/The-Secret-Life-of-Your-Microbiome), by Susan L. Prescott, MD, PhD and Alan C. Logan, ND and of course that it’s Marlies Venier’s recipe.
