Our nutritionist, Kaley Todd, goes wild for Chef Justine’s spin on traditional puttanesca sauce. The Mediterranean diet promotes health and longevity, so it’s no surprise that the Southern Italian sauce is so heart-healthy. Olive oil, tomatoes, capers, and olives are also loaded with antioxidants. Paired with omega-3-packed salmon, it all makes for a delicious meal that nourishes the whole body.
