3 Fish You Should Definitely Add to Your Diet
By Genevieve Cunningham
Eating fish has long been known as a healthy addition to your diet. But unless you happen to live in a fish heavy area or on an island, you may not really know where to start. Perhaps the only fish you really know anything about comes in a small can at the grocery store. How are you supposed to get started eating fish when you’ve never really done it before? Where are you supposed to begin? To improve your diet with some healthy fish, take a look at these great options.
Why salmon? It’s common, well known, and easy to cook. It also tastes delicious without too much of a fishy taste. Salmon is low calorie, contains omega-3 fatty acids, and is packed with protein. It can be grilled, pan fried, or baked in an oven. There are recipes all over the internet, and most are easy to follow. If you’re looking for an easy place to start, salmon may be just the ticket.
When you’re ready to venture out just a little (but not too much!), mahi mahi is an excellent fish choice. Its flavor is definitely a little more fishy, but it’s still delicious to those who don’t mind. It is also low calorie, protein packed, and contains tons of healthy nutrients for the ordinary person. Mahi mahi is good grilled, but it also makes an excellent fish taco. You can find these in the frozen section of most grocery stores, so find an interesting recipe, and get ready to expand your palate.
This fish is tough for some people to swallow, and for others, it’s a breeze. Why include it in your diet? For starters, it’s so easy to find. Check out your local grocery store, and you’ll probably find multiple cans to choose from. Another great reason to add sardines is because they are one of the only foods that naturally contains Vitamin D. This vitamin is usually only absorbed from the sun, so many people don’t get enough. Getting more Vitamin D can lead to better moods, a healthier body, and a more positive outlook on life. If you can stand it, give this tiny fish a try and you’ll probably gain some great benefits.
Fish aren’t for everyone. Some people can’t stand the smell or the flavor, and that’s OK. But if you’re interested and simply don’t know where to start, these options can be an excellent choice. Give them a try in your everyday life, and you may be able to improve your diet with very little effort.
