Luxury spa chain Canyon Ranch
with resorts in Tuscon, Ariz., Lenox, Mass. and Miami Beach
(as well as "SpaClubs" at the Venetian in Las Vegas and aboard Cunard's Queen Mary 2) is famous for its integrated approach to health and wellness. During a weekend stay you might exercise, see doctors and wellness experts and enjoy spa treatments, but the food is where some of the most subtle and sublime healthiness takes place. Earlier this year MSN named the Canyon Ranch Grill at Las Vegas' Palazzo hotel one of the Top 10 Heart-Healthy Restaurants in the U.S.
We asked the culinary team at Canyon Ranch to share three healthy summer recipes and their secrets.
Salmon w/ Blueberry Mango Salsa
Fish, specifically salmon, is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids which have been shown to increase optimal brain functioning by decreasing inflammation and keeping the blood vessels flexible.
Antioxidants, found in brightly colored fruits and veggies like blueberries and red peppers, protect against free-radical damage.
