Seafood in the New Year

Home   ›   Blogs   ›   Seafood in the New Year
January 14, 2019

Whether or not your new year’s resolution includes bettering your health and wellness goals, we strongly believe that there is no better time than now to start focusing on smart seafood choices and the health benefits of eating a diet rich in seafood! Eating fish, specifically omega-3 fatty acids found in seafood, has been proven to help people maintain healthy brains as they age and incorporate heart healthy fats for an endless list of health benefits. Not only can seafood help better your health, but the idea of incorporating something new into your diet means expanding your horizons, following new recipes and inviting your friends and family to join in on the fun!


 Rima, from Dish on Fish said it best with four reasons to eat more seafood this year in her new blog, “How Seafood Helps Your New Year’s Resolution Stick.”

“If you’re looking to lose weight or eat healthier…

In general, it’s important to set goals for yourself that are specific, measurable and achievable. Adding more seafood to your diet is a great first step to eating healthier, which can help with weight loss. According to the U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans, we should aim for at least 2-3 servings of seafood each week. The protein in seafood can help keep you feeling fuller longer, so you eat less overall, and it also helps you maintain muscle mass during weight loss. One key to a healthy diet: eating meals that combine a protein rich in heart-healthy fat (like salmon) with fiber-rich foods like vegetables, fruits and whole grains.

If you want to learn something new…

Learning how to cook is a great way to create new brain cells, expand your horizons and gain a new, impressive skill. Ease into cooking your favorite seafood by exploring our Seafood Supper Club series, which takes you step-by-step through some of our favorite easy-to-make seafood recipes. Some of our don’t-miss Seafood Supper Club dishes include: Honey Garlic Shrimp Skewers, Spicy Sheet-Pan Salmon, Easy Avocado-Crab Benny, Instant Pot Shrimp & Grits, and Creamy Clam Chowder. Plus, eating more seafood every week is important for keeping our brains healthy as we age.

If you’re looking for ways to spend more time with friends and family…

Spending more time with those you cherish is a beautiful resolution to make. If you’ve decided to go this route with your new year’s goals, commit to hosting a monthly dinner party or restaurant-inspired family meal with a plan to add a new seafood recipe each time!

You can either rotate the hosting duties among members of the group or make it a potluck, setting the stage for adding lots of fun new foods and dishes to your repertoire. And, you know we’re big proponents of bringing your kids into the kitchen, because there’s really no better way to get them to try new things, especially different types of seafood!

If you’re aiming to be less stressed…

Lucky for you, the omega-3s in seafood can help boost your mood! Just like we mentioned above, you’ll want to incorporate seafood into your diet 2 to 3 times a week for maximum benefits.”
