February is the month of love and all things heart shaped. It also happens to be American Heart Month and we can’t think of a more perfect time to focus on heart health! Did you know that heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States? This is why it is so important that we take time to prioritize nutrition in our daily lives.
Many kinds of fish and shellfish contain omega-3s that are protective against heart disease. These omega-3s benefit by decreasing fat in the blood, lowering blood pressure, reducing risk of blood clots, and reducing inflammation. Learn all about it here.
Seafood is an easy way to incorporate healthy fats into your diet. Some omega-3-rich options include salmon, sardines, trout, mackerel, oysters, mussels, and sablefish or black cod.
