Live a Healthier Life: EAT FISH

Want to have a healthier lifestyle but not sure where to start? Eat fresh fish and seafood a few times a week, and you may feel and look better. Fish contains omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins such as D and B2 (riboflavin). Fish is rich in calcium and phosphorus and a great source of minerals, such as iron, zinc, iodine, magnesium, potassium, and selenium. The American Heart Association recommends eating fish at least two times per week as part of a healthy diet.

Eating fish regularly can help lower your risk of developing an autoimmune disease like diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis and can even help prevent certain types of cancer. Not to mention, seafood pairs well with cruciferous vegetables, which are very good for cancer prevention. Fish is a one-stop source of many vital nutrients that can help you maintain a healthy balance in your body and can help fight a variety of different diseases.

Fish is high in protein and low in saturated fat. It is abundant with omega-3 fatty acids that can also reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke. The best fish to eat to reap these health benefits are wild-caught salmon (a great source of Vitamin D and calcium), tuna (safe in moderation), rainbow trout, Pacific halibut, and cod.
