We’ve said it many times here on our blog …fish is a key part of a healthy and nutritious diet. Twice a week, at least 6-8 ounces can have some amazing health benefits. At Channel Fish Processing, we pride ourselves on offering a wide variety of fish options, both fresh and frozen, to allow for the many different tastes and preferred preparation styles across the country.
Live Well online states that, “Dietitians recommend two servings of 4 ounces or one serving of 8 ounces of fish per week, as a bare minimum.” This means that families need to get a little creative in their meal preparations to avoid using the same meals over and over again.
A Quick Reminder of Why Fish Is So Healthy
Before we let you in on some of our favorite products, it deserves a quick reminder of why fish is such a healthy food for consumption. Live Well put it perfectly that, “Eating fish is associated with the health benefits of lowering triglycerides, blood pressure, inflammation, macular degeneration and reducing the risk of heart disease and stroke. It also provides a lean source of omega-3 fatty acids, proteins and minerals.
