This dish offers a great balance of the 3 macronutrients – protein, carbohydrates and fats. Fish is a wonderful source of protein and contains a range of minerals and vitamins. It is low in saturated fat, and contains healthy omega 3 fats – the oilier the fish, the more omegas it contains. Potatoes, especially in their skin, are a great healthy carbohydrate, while also providing some fibre. As for our healthy greens, we can’t do much better than spinach and parsley – with tomato!
