Eat More Fish

I grew up in the Midwest. We were a meat and potatoes kind of family. Trust me, I get it.

But it’s time to branch out a little bit and add an important protein to your weekly menu: fish.

Fish is a high-quality source of protein that is low in fat. And the good news is the fat in fish is actually good for you!

Some benefits of fish include:

  • Filled with omega-3 fatty acids
  • Filled with important vitamins like D and B2
  • Rich in calcium and phosphorus
  • High in minerals including iron, zinc, magnesium, and potassium

So what are omega-3 fatty acids and why should I care about them?

Omega-3 fatty acids are essential nutritions for your heart and brain health. Our body also does not produce them itself, so we rely on getting them through or diet.

Omega-3 fatty acids help to:

  • Lower blood pressure
  • Reduce risk of heart disease
  • Aid healthy brain function

The American Heart Association recommends eating fish at least twice a week. We agree, adding fish into your diet, especially to replace a higher fat protein, can be a great step in improving your nutrition!
