At this point in our lives, I’m confident you are aware that fish is a great addition to your regular diet. If you are lucky enough to catch some fish locally (or know someone who does), you know how wonderful they are to eat– particularly the grouper, snapper, trout, trigger and yes, the often-maligned mullet.
Fish provides a great source of protein, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins D and B2, calcium, phosphorus, iron, zinc, iodine, magnesium, and potassium. All that stuff is good for us.
One study suggests if you eat at least 8 ounces of fish per week that you will increase your lifespan by five full years. The bottom line is fish is the best alternative to our usual sources of animal protein versus beef, pork and chicken. Fish is also a bit gentler on your digestive tract.
There’s one problem for most of us, fried fish tastes the best… but, there are lots of delicious and different ways to prepare your fish. You’ll find some recipes below you can use next time you go to Joe Patti’s or your local fishmonger.
Make a commitment to your health today.
Stay well adjusted,
