Eating fish is remarkably beneficial to your mind and body.

It is good for your heart

Eating fish that is rich in Omega-3 appears to reduce the risk of heart disease.

It is good for the mind

Omega-3 found in fish is essential for good brain health. Your brain and nervous system is are made up of fat and they have a preference for DHA which is an Omega-3.

It improves overall well being

Fish is loaded with important nutrients. This includes not only omega but protein, iodine, and vitamin D, which are all essential for your well being.

Which are healthiest fish to eat?

Wild Salmon

They pack 1200 mg of omega's per 3 ounce serving.

Cod

Cod is a great source of niacin and vitamin B-12. A 3-ounce portion has 20 grams of protein.

Sardines

Single serving has about  20 grams of protein and is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, iron and potassium,

Why we love fish!

Salmon_sashimi_bowl

We consume  fish weekly  because both of  us have Alzheimer’s and Dementia in our genetics.  Studies suggest omega-3’s may help protect against Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, and have a positive effect on gradual memory loss linked to aging.  We love eating fish not only because of all of the health and mind benefits, but we also enjoy the flavors and all of the creative recipes you can create with fish.

One of our favorite fish is Salmon, but we prefer to eat it sashimi style. We eat salmon sashimi 2-3 times a week. My favorite dish is the Salmon Sashimi bowl, it is easy to make and a great way to incorporate veggies. You can see one of our favorite recipes here.

    I eat fish a few times a week, usually, and I love it not only for the taste but the health benefits as well.

    We follow meatless Mondays in our house so fish is always on the menu. Tonight it is grilled veggies, couscous, and halibut!

    I love fish! I don’t know if I could eat sardines though. I like them in Caesar dressing but that’s about it!

    I’ve known this fact for quite some time now, but, I still don’t eat fish. How I’ve gotten around this is by cod liver oil as a supplement. It helps me to still get the health benefits without actually eating the meat.

    Great quick tips! Wild Alaskan salmon so yummy too! Although I do get concerned about contaminates.

    Fish is an important part of a healthy diet. I always watch where the fish came from though, it makes a difference in its metal and contaminant content.

    Thanks for sharing this post and illuminating the benefits. I don’t think it’s recognized enough the benefits and I certainly didn’t know it can have some positive effects in deterring dementia. Great post!

    I eat fish at least 3 times a week and totally agree! The salmon sashimi bowl is one of my favourites too!

    We never had fish growing up unless it was in the form of a breaded stick. I am trying to develop a taste for it now because I know it is so healthy.

    I do love fish and I try to eat it as often as possible. My favorite is the river trout, I find it so tasty and full of flavour.

    We seldom have fish in our house, I am the only one eating fish. Miss it though.

  • Ellie Plummer

    I’m not the biggest fish fan as I don’t particularly like the flavour but I may have salmon a go as it is very good for you.

    It is great that it is rich in Omega 3s. However, sadly, I have never liked the taste of fish. 🙁

    Fish is like the ‘wonder food’ isn’t it? I live by the ocean, get LOTS of fresh fish and can’t wait to try a few of your recipes!

    Yum! I love fish but my husband doesn’t so I don’t eat it as much as I should. I love that it tastes good and has all of these health benefits, too.

    I totally agree with points in the post. Fish is good for our healthy, and that is why I would prefer it over other protein sources like Chicken.

    I’m lucky enough to live in a part of the world where it is easy to purchase fresh locally caught fish. My favourites are salmon, haddock, and mussels.

    We love eating fish. With everything going on we are just more careful.

  • mrhappywork

    Posted 2018-09-11 9:18 pm

    I used to love salmon before I went to a Vegan diet. Fish definitely does have great benefits, but you must also be careful since many fish from farms are filled with antibiotics and wild fish may have high levels of mercury. Getting truly fresh fish is expensive and hard to find.

  • Melanie

    We have been trying hard to eat more fish lately for these exact reasons! We used to be big red meat eaters, but have tried to make healthier options and I am really enjoying the different fish we have been trying!

  • Ayana Nell

    Posted 2018-09-11 10:11 pm

    I’ve tried so hard to like fish but I can’t make it work! I try to eat salmon once in a while and take fish oils but so far that’s the best I’ve been able to do. I do know they are crazy good for you though!

  • Marie Ndiaye

    Posted 2018-09-11 10:56 pm

    I completely agree. My husband is from Senegal, where fish is a huge staple in the diet, so we eat fish pretty often.

  • Megan

    Posted 2018-09-11 11:25 pm

    I almost never eat fish, so this is definitely good to read! I just get a bit squeamish about texture, but I take fish oil!

    YESS!! We eat fish at least once a week!! It’s absolutely delicious, has so many benefits, and its always fast to cook!

  • Carol Cassara

    Posted 2018-09-11 11:53 pm

    Doctors would always recommend fish and it’s easy to understand why! It has so many benefits, not to mention that it tastes delicious too. I hope a lot of people would read this post!

    I’ve heard this about fish! I absolutely love eating fish! I would eat it everyday but I’m afraid of mercury poisoning….

    I LOVE fish, seafood of all kinds actually. I don’t get to eat it near as much as I like because I am the only one in my family that likes it. I am hungry now.

    We love salmon at our house too, I especially love to bake it teriyaki style. SO yummy. I’m going to have to take a peak at you salmon bowl recipe, it’s always nice to mix things up and try new things!

  • Czjai Reyes-Ocampo

    Posted 2018-09-12 9:34 am

    If I could eat salmon everyday, I would! Even my son loves fish dishes a lot and would choose them over pork or beef any day. 🙂

  • Brittany Vantrease

    Posted 2018-09-12 11:16 am

    I wish I like fish because of all the health benefits associated with it, but it’s hard for me to get over the taste. I do like salmon dip and tuna fish, but I think they might lose some of their health value when mixed with mayo and cream cheese.

  • Amber B. (@amberstarr82)

    Posted 2018-09-12 12:36 pm

    Yes, we love fish in our home! Salmon is my favorite…I wish I could learn to like sardines but just not fond of the flavor.

    Just recently, I tried avoiding eating red meat and focus more on eating fish. Salmon has always been my favorite! But I didn’t like the sashimi style.

    Posted 2018-09-12 4:16 pm

    I love fish! I don’t prefer salmon, but my husband does, so I prepare it quite often. My children like the fish from the local lake called egli fish that is very tasty.

    I love fish but nowadays because of the increase in number of oilspills, plastic and toxins from waste products in the ocean, we don’t know what we are eating nowadays. It’s time we stop contaminating our own diet.

    Yes, I definitely need to add more fish to our meals here. I do like cod and salmon, but not sardines. We often have haddock and tilapia, but maybe they aren’t ideal types of fish to consume.

    I will need to eat fish even more! Didn’t know it helped protect against Alzheimer’s and dementia. I love salmon especially! I’ll need to go out and get a poke bowl, lol!
