Favourite vegetable: broccoli. Why? It's a powerhouse of nutrients and what we in the nutrition world call "nature's broomstick" for toxins. Favourite protein: salmon, because it's the most micro-nutrient dense meat.

Pair these two superfoods together and you get a power combination for anyone looking to lose weight, build muscle, or for just an overall healthy meal. I've tried many different ways of preparing these, but non as tasty as this recipe made by guest star, Claire Grigioni, co-founder of Artha Collections.
