What Seafood Is Most Healthy?

Our dear friends over at Fit and Fab Living just posted an article about healthy seafood: what is and what isn't? Here's what I think.

Article author, Tori, cites that the American Heart Association suggests that we should be eating fish two times a week. I have never been a fan of fish, or any seafood for that matter. I've always been a picky eater, and am easily put off by weird textures. I've always been good with some tuna, but I'm referring to the packaged stuff, which I'm sure isn't as healthy as the fresh stuff. However, through the past year or so I've made some decent ground on eating –and not hating– fish. I'm most okay with tilapia, as it's quite mild, but we also tend to fry it. In the article, Tori makes important note that baking, broiling, and steaming food, among other methods, are better options than frying: especially if we're trying to keep up nutritional value. And I'm on board with that. If you're going to make a positive, healthy change, don't cheat yourself out of that protein, omega-3, and vitamins packed into much of the seafood you'll find on your table. Tori writes especially about the good qualities of salmon, rainbow trout, albacore tuna, and *gulp* oysters (I don't think I'm quite there, yet). When it comes down to it, I'm all for making small adjustments to your diet that will help you monumentally. By simply throwing some salmon and tuna on the table twice a week, your body and your family's are being filled up with good stuff.
