Why Seafood is Good for You

Posted by Lindsay Adler on Jul 27 2017

Fish is complete source of protein, Omega 3s, essential minerals 

There are many reasons why seafood is good for you. Fish is a healthy lean protein option with very little saturated fat. Seafood is generally low in cholesterol and rich in vitamins and minerals including iodine, zinc, potassium, and vitamin B. There’s also this little-known fact: Fish is an appetite suppresant. Researchers have shown that eating fish stopped people feeling hungry sooner than other protein foods such as beef and chicken.

Current dietary guidelines encourage Americans to increase their seafood intake to twice per week, or at least eight ounces of a variety of seafood each week. With so many varieties of fish, mollusks and shellfish, seafood also is the most versatile protein available, and cooking with healthy seafood recipes has never been easier. Read on to learn why seafood is good for you.
