We’re constantly being told to eat more fish by everyone from health experts to top chefs, but most people are unaware of the many benefits of eating seafood. Read on for our roundup of three reasons to make fish part of your weekly meal rotation.
When was the last time you had real-deal lobster pie from Maine?
1. It’s Healthy!
Fish is rich in many of the fat-based nutrients the body needs to function at its best, and yet many people fall far short on this dietary requirement. Not only is fish high in protein, but it’s also packed with omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D — both of which offer powerful body benefits.
Looking to decrease your risk of heart attack or stroke? Slow down your rate of cognitive decline? Prevent depression? Boost your immune system? Protect your eyesight? Eating fish does all of these things and much more.
Eating fish can even help you sleep better at night. How? By correcting low levels of vitamin D, which may be linked with sleep problems.
2. It’s Simple!
While many people avoid cooking fish out of fear of doing it wrong, the truth is that cooking with fish is surprisingly simple. It gets even easier, however, when you order from FoodyDirect.

In other words, you can stop worrying about how you’re going to cook your seafood meal and start thinking about how you’re going to enjoy it.
3. It’s Delicious!
Any conversation about fish isn’t complete without talking about its incredible taste. However, not all fish is created equal. Buying seafood from a reputable supplier is an important part of ensuring that you’ll be dining on the very best of the ocean’s bounty.
But fish doesn’t just taste good, it’s also wonderfully versatile. From salmon, swordfish, halibut, dorado, bronzini, mahi-mahi, bass, snapper, arctic char, and yellowfish tuna filets to outside-the-box offerings, including lobster white truffle pizza, gumbo, baked stuffed shrimp, and “oysters rockafella,” FoodyDirect offers an amazing assortment of seafood and seafood meals perfect for lunch, dinner, parties, and other events.
