Salmon- wHY IT’S SO DARN GOOD FOR US!
I love seafood, and I’m into being mindful of what I eat. I have to say it’s not always easy but if you’re eating the right foods, and using the right recipes, you’d be surprised at how easy it is to stay fit. It’s all about keeping regimented and in a routine.
So I’m sure you’ve heard that fish and fish oil are a great way to eat healthy; But Salmon is an extremely healthy meal option.
Salmon, in particular, is considered high in omega-3 fatty acids which receives the most attention by health enthusiasts. It seems that studies have suggested eating salmon and other fatty fish will decrease the risk of obesity, diabetes and heart disease.
Salmon is one of the most nutritious foods on the planet.Salmon is rich in long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to reduce inflammation, lower blood pressure and decrease risk factors for disease.
Salmon is also a great source of protein for all those pro-Atikins diet lovers. It’s really an ideal protein because it carries less fat than chicken or beef.
It’s interesting that a heavily consuming seafood country like Japan and the Inuit people of Canada experience a lower risk of heart disease than other Western regions. The Inuit are a group of culturally similar indigenous peoples inhabiting the Arctic regions of Greenland, Canada and Alaska. Their diets consist of mostly meats but in particular seafood and even more so Salmon. On a side note it’s also been said that a Mediterranean diet, like you’d find in Egypt, is well-known as one of the world’s healthiest.
Researchers advise we eat at least two servings of fatty fish per week. I guess I’ll have to up my visits to Rayan Poissonnerie!
