Wellbeing Wisdom

  • Eating salmon could help keep our hearts and brains healthy, as it contains omega-3 fatty acids
  • Avocados contain strong levels of folic acid, which is thought to help combat depression


  • 5 slices dark rye bread
  • 1 ripe avocado, stone removed
  • 100g full-fat Greek yoghurt
  • 1⁄2 tsp honey
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 2 hot smoked salmon fillets, skin removed and flesh flaked
  • 50g sauerkraut
  • Chives, snipped to serve


  1. Toast the rye bread for a couple of minutes on each side, or until it is lightly toasted and crisp. Cut each piece into 8 small squares, and set aside until ready to use.
  2. To make the avocado cream, put chopped avocado, yoghurt, honey and cayenne into a food processor and whizz until smooth. You want to achieve the consistency of thick cream, so add a tsp of water if the mix is too thick. Scrape out, cover the surface with clingfilm and chill until required.
  3. Top each square of rye toast with a smear of avocado cream, scatter over some hot smoked salmon, a little sauerkraut and finish with a few snipped chives. Serve immediately.
