The Hype About Omega-3’s
We could focus on the dangers of eating trans fats but we’d rather get out the truth about seafood, which is generally rich in omega-3 fatty acids. When you eat the seafood version of omega-3 fats, you get terrific benefits to help you with your healthy eating resolution.
The many benefits of omega-3’s:
- Increase HDL (good cholesterol) levels
- Triglycerides and inflammation are decreased by omega-3s when you eat more seafood
- Essential for brain development and cell turnover
- May help prevent cancer
- When you eat more seafood for the omega-3s, your sleep will likely improve
- May protect against depression
- Increased satiety
The Joys of Lean Protein from the Sea
Eating lean proteins can contribute to joy and happiness, especially when you add more seafood to your diet. Even fatty fish such as salmon and tuna qualify as a lean protein. The leanest of proteins include cod, halibut, trout, and seabass, all of which are white fish. Shrimp, lobster, and clam are also extra lean.
Here are some of the many benefits of eating lean proteins:
- Curbs hunger
- Helps with weight loss
- Makes you feel fuller longer
- Optimizes immune function
- Energy production
- Muscle building
- Tissue repair
- Gives metabolism a boost
- Reduces body fat
- Helps with digestion
Add More Seafood to Your Diet
To provide self-motivation for adding more seafood to your diet, get creative in the kitchen! Have you tried an air fryer yet? Fish is great cooked in an air fryer, but it can also be grilled or cooked in a cast iron skillet. Seafood can be baked, steamed, barbecued, braised, and/or poached. Sure, seafood enthusiasts generally love a good fish fillet. But what about making fish tacos, shrimp stir fry, or salmon burgers?
A wide variety of herbs can delightfully jazz up your seafood dishes. Have you tried fresh herbs such as tarragon, chives, turmeric, thyme, oregano, cumin, parsley, smoked paprika, ginger, or basil in your seafood recipes? Herbs can be game-changers.
Seafood recipes that highlight herbs follow:
- Chef John’s Grilled Garlic and Herb Shrimp
- Blackened Fish Recipe
- Herb Roasted Mahi-Mahi
- Turmeric Fish with Rice Noodles and Herbs Recipe
