Love it or hate it, sea food is good for you. With high proteins and low fats, fish provides a wide range of health benefits. For example, white-fleshed fish such as halibut or mullet, are lower in fat that any other animal protein source.


Then, there are oily fish varieties such as mackerel and anchovy that are high in omega-3 fatty acids a.k.a “good fats”.


Therefore, as you can see, fish and other types of seafood are rich in essential nutrients that your body needs. So, the next time you’re at one of those fancy seaside beach restaurants or even just at home, make sure to pick out a dish that includes this amazing source of nutrients.


Make sure to include seafood even while you’re on holiday. Read up on travel sites such as the Sandy Beach Trips about the different types of seafood cuisines available in the particular destination you’re travelling to.
