Why we should eat more fish.

Fish market

Most of us don’t get enough omega-3 fatty acids in our diet and we’re not exactly sure why but North Americans in general tend to neglect adding fish to our daily or even weekly meals.  When you hear about the benefits of eating fish you might end up kicking yourself because it honestly lives up to all the stir and excitement.

So let’s start off with a few.

Most vitamin rich fish are: Albacore tuna, herring, salmon, mackerel, trout, and sardines.

If you can’t eat too much fish try these alternatives: Wheat germ, flax seed oils, canola

Some intersting fish links:  Lemon Tilapia Asparagus, The Fish Store

  1. Great post! Thanks so much for all the info… I’ve been craving salmon lately, and you just helped me decide what to have for dinner 🙂

    • No problem! I’ve been craving fish too lately and I’ve always wanted to find new and exciting recipes because making fish at home isn’t that difficult at all.

      I’m looking for a nice cast iron frying pan just to make fish. Please let me know if you come across any deals on your website 😛

  2. I have this sudden urge to go grocery shopping now. Way to go Alice, now I feel bad for not buying enough fish…I only get my omega-3 dose when I go to those all you can eat Japanese restaurants.

  3. So it’s obvious mom was right when she tried to convince me to eat fish every week. If only there was a way to ensure your fish fillet was free of all bones. Nothing worse than finding those stringy fish bones in your perfectly cooked fillet. Any tips on that Alice?

    • Hey Maria,

      Well, let’s start off by saying there is no fool proof methods of eating boneless fish (unless it’s from McDonald’s). Everyone should be a little cautious whenever eating fish.

      What I like to do is try to buy mostly fish fillets or fish steaks at the fish/super market.

      Try these:

      Steaks: Tuna, Shark, Swordfish

      Fillets: Cod, monkfish, Nile perch, salmon, sole, tilapia, trout, turbot.

      Alice,
