As a Registered Dietitian, I love teaching consumers about seafood. My favorite thing is teaching people how to select and prepare seafood from the Homeland meat counters. A lot of customers are scared of seafood because they believe it is difficult to cook. I love giving them the confidence they need to add it to their shopping cart. I try to incorporate seafood two times a week into my diet because I know it's an important source of Omega-3 fatty acids that help keep my heart healthy but are hard to find in the diet.
One thing I love about seafood is that it's so versatile! You can eat seafood for any meal and can make it taste different every time because there are so many amazing flavor profiles. Another thing I love about seafood is that it's super fast and easy to cook—convenience is a huge plus in my book.
Seafood helps me lead a balanced lifestyle by giving me a lot of 'bang' for my nutrient buck. Seafood provides my diet with protein rich foods, healthy fats, and low calories—what more could you ask for It also helps me reach my protein goals of 30 grams per meal, which helps aid in muscle recovering and growth following workouts.
