Seafood Is Not Only Good For You But It Tastes Good Too

Seafood is one of my favorite foods to eat. Here are a few facts about it.

  1. USDA recommends eating it twice a week.
  2. It's an excellent source of protein. A 3 oz. serving provides 20-50% of the recommended daily allowance.
  3. It contains Omega-3 fatty acids which may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.
  4. Low in sodium. Most 3 oz. servings have less than 100 mg of sodium. Shellfish's levels are slightly higher.
  5. Many are low in fat and the fat in seafood is rich in heart-healthy polyunsaturated fatty acids.
So if you are looking to start the new year off healthy... seafood is a great option!
