Nutrients in Fish

The reason I am trying to share more tips about seafood is because we may consume much meat during Christmas and year end gathering and is time to control our meat intake. As you all know, fish is a source of protein. Most kind of fish are lower in fat than others protein sources such as chicken, beef, pork, lamb and even poultry. The cholesterol content of fish is lower than meat I mentioned too. Deep sea fish such as salmon, mackerel, sardines and herring are high in type of poly saturated fat (PUFA) called omega-3 fatty acids. The consumption of omega-3 fatty acids has been reported correlated to the decrease of risk of heart disease.


Sounds healthier right? I strongly encourage people tried more fishes as main meal rather than meat every week.
