Nourishment Notes


Salmon is a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids. This type of fat helps to reduce inflammation common with asthma. It’s also a good heart-healthy protein source.


Garlic is an anti-inflammatory food and can help protect healthy cells from cancer causing carcinogens.


Thyme is known as “nature’s throat lozenge”. It may help with a sore throat, cough and congestion that can be common with asthma.


Rosemary is a powerful herb. It may help aid digestion and help to improve immune function. In patients with asthma, immune function can sometimes be low.

Breathe Better Food Tip

  • Quick-Cooking Protein

    Salmon is a quick-cooking protein option, especially helpful for days when energy levels may be low.

  • Omit Garlic

    Garlic can sometimes cause heartburn and gas, making breathing uncomfortable. To prevent heartburn and uncomfortable gas, omit the garlic in this recipe or substitute for 1 tablespoon of garlic powder.
