There Is Nothing Fishy about Improving Health

By Tom Herrin

Doing what they can to provide better health for themselves and their families is what should be on the minds of most people.  It is one of those things that is always on the back-burner.  Having the time to dedicate to such things is a little difficult to carve out.  The less that must be done, the better.  If small changes can do the trick, most would prefer it.  Jumping through hoops can create a burden to the point that people sometimes give up.  One of the small things that may be done to benefit health is simply to make dietary modifications.  Adding fish as a part of the regular diet can produce some good results with little effort.

It Can Be a Good Source of Nutrients

Most people would like to have nutritious meals but may not want to go to the effort.  When they add fish as a regular part of a diet, they are able to accomplish a lot for a little effort.  Fish can provide iodine, vitamins, and minerals.  It also may contain omega-3 fatty acids which are on many lists of good things.  It is always high in protein.  It can be a win all the way around by having it once or twice per week.

It May Help Protect the Brain

One of the most significant things in the brain that seems to be so critical in its function is grey matter.  It has to do with memory, processing information, and emotions.  According to some studies, people who eat fish regularly have more grey matter in some centers of the brain.  Some believe that it may slow cognitive decline and, therefore, protect against diseases such as Alzheimer's.

It Can Be Good to Eat

I have seen very few kids who don't like fish sticks, even if they say they don't like fish.  It may all be in the way it is prepared, but most of us can likely find some way to eat fish.  We may simply have to find the right recipe and eat the right sides.  My family always enjoys eating fish.  We like salmon or tuna right out of a can.  We also enjoy grilled, broiled, or baked fish of all kinds.  We like some grilled veggies with it.  Adding fish to a diet is a good and simple investment.  Find some kind that your family likes and make it a regular part of your diet.
