It’s a win-win for corporate wellness promoters and their target audience when something that’s good for you is also, well, good.
Take, for instance, fish. It’s common knowledge that adding more omega-3-rich fish to your diet can help promote heart health. And it can be a tasty addition to a weekly meal rotation, to boot. But it may not be enough to simply up your intake.
New research indicates that ordering just anything off the menu at your local seafood eatery probably won’t do you much good, and in fact, it could have a negative effect.
It seems that the way fish is prepared matters when it comes to heart benefits. While baked and broiled fish is heart-helpful, fried fish is heart-harmful.
In a 10-year study of women, those who ate baked or broiled fish five or more times a week had a 30% lower risk of heart failure. Just one weekly serving of fried fish was linked to a 48% increased risk of heart failure.
That doesn’t mean you have to be stuck with a bland entree just because it’s good for you. Experiment with a variety of flavorful enhancements like herbs, spices, and citrus, and even meat-and-potatoes people are bound to find a recipe they can live with.
Here’s a delicious sampling of 10 healthy fish dishes, from Health.com.
