We’ve all heard the expression, “There’s a lot of fish in the sea,” but how often do we take this sentiment at face value when it comes to menu planning? Perhaps not enough. There’s no better time to enjoy the extraordinary bounty offered up by American seas than during the lazy, hazy days of summer. Let’s take a closer look at the many benefits of eating seafood, along with some simple tips aimed at helping you lead a fish-forward life.
There’s still plenty of time to get your grill on this summer.
Why Eat More Seafood?
Health experts agree that incorporating more fish into your diet — at least two servings a week — is one of the best ways to lead a healthier life. For starters, both fish and other types of seafood are rich in beneficial omega-3 fats as well as a number of other nutrients, including everything from vitamin D to protein.
From fighting heart disease to protecting the brain from age-related deterioration, the advantages of eating fish go on and on. Other scientifically-proven perks of consuming fish include preventing depression; reducing autoimmune diseases, such as Type 1 diabetes; safeguarding vision; improving sleep quality; preventing asthma in children; and even supporting the development of babies during their mothers’ pregnancies.
Despite these many reasons to eat fish, the one topping our list may surprise you: It’s delicious. In fact, one of the most amazing things about fish is its versatility. From moist and “meaty” swordfish to flaky, flavorful halibut, there are near-endless ways to cook, serve and enjoy the many different kinds of seafood.
