When snack o’clock hits, we like to be prepared with something healthy and filling—like these vegan blueberry energy balls or these collagen protein coconut balls. But sometimes we want something savory to snack on—like these baked salmon balls from Nikki Baumel of My Sweet Belly. These non-traditional meatballs are not only easy to make, they’re also full of protein and healthy fats.
The star ingredient is salmon, a good source of omega-3s. These fatty acids are considered essential for our health but can only come from our diets. Omega-3s play a role in everything from heart health to reducing inflammation to potentially helping with depression.
The salmon balls are super light and fluffy and make for a delicious snack, Nikki says. (Just remember: nobody likes the person who brings fish into the office. Maybe save this snack for when you’re at home.)
