Do you frequently incorporate fish into your diet?
If you have trouble consuming seafood (at least 2 times per week) what is the reason? Is it because you find fish is difficult to prepare? Do you struggle with knowing how to serve fish? Or do you forget about eating fish?
Why Eat More Fish?
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the USDA, Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2015-2020 concludes that average seafood consumption is below recommendations in the U.S.A. and suggests dramatic changes in the American diet to increase this intake – such as choosing a salmon steak or tuna sandwich over traditional choices.
It is recommended that seafood be incorporated into diet at least two meals (or 8 ounces) per week. Substituting seafood for other forms of protein foods allows the body to get important nutrients.
