Each week during March, aka National Nutrition Month, I’ll be writing on FreshDirect’s blog about how to use the recently released Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2010 in real life to go from expert recommendations to everyday healthy habits. A sampling is below, read the full post (and expert chef ideas for quick seafood dinners at home), here.
Regularly enjoying a variety of seafood is one of the best (and tastiest) ways to benefit from their heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. That’s the main reason health experts from the likes of the American Dietetic Association, American Heart Association, and the Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2010 all promote eating fish twice a week. There’s also emerging research linking omega-3s to improved mood and brain function.
Maybe you’re convinced that you should eat seafood, but you think fish is a kitchen challenge. You’re not alone!
To help, I talked with our Director of Research and Development, Chef Tina Bourbeau, who knows a thing or two about preparing seafood from her days working in New York’s finest kitchens. She’s also a tried-and-true New Yorker, which means she values a quick, delicious, no-mess dinner as much as the next person.
