Healthy, Delicious Dining All Year Long
Eating seafood at least twice a week can help protect against heart disease, according to USDA 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. To keep hearts healthy, the USDA recommends eating eight ounces of seafood per week, which is equivalent to two four-ounce servings. Here are ways you can add delicious, heart-healthy seafood to your diet:
- Choose seafood such as Alaska pollock, cod, halibut, sole, King and Snow crab, black cod and salmon, which offer nutritional benefits such as heart-healthy omega-3s.
- Prepare seafood so it's lean and flavorful by using healthy cooking methods such as grilling, roasting or baking, and skipping calorie- and fat-laden methods such as frying, breading, or by adding rich sauces.
- Add flavor using spices and fresh or dried herbs as seasonings.
- Serve seafood with healthful sides, such as whole grains, roasted vegetables and crisp greens.
