The Importance of Adding Fish to Your Diet

If you were to study Inuit natives of Northern Canada, you’d notice they don’t have a high rate of heart disease. Why is that? Well, most Inuit consume a lot of fish– salmon in particular. Research indicates that eating fish high in monounsaturated fats (Omega 3s, for example) is a heart healthy choice worth making…

Fish is good for your heart, your mind, and your overall health. Tuna, mackerel, and sardines, for instance, are all high in Omega 3 fatty acids, and eating two or more servings of “fatty fish” per week is really good for you.

Rather than consume endless amounts of junk food loaded with sugar and chemicals, add more fish to your diet in order to prevent cancers, osteoporosis, and even mental decline.

Fish are like vegetables: we know we should eat them but we’re picky. “I don’t like that” is a typical statement. Well, here’s the thing: you’re not going to love the taste of every veggie just like you won’t like the taste of every fish. That said, it wouldn’t hurt to sample different types of fish to see which ones appeal to you. Then, slowly but surely, you can add more fish to your diet to boost your overall health.
