Our little fishy friends sure don’t get enough love! Seafood provides an easy and awesome opportunity for a source of tasty protein and healthy fats. Hopefully this pescatarian macro cheat sheet will help get more variety in your protein choices.
The biggest thing about preparing seafood is that it’s all about the spices and marinades – There’s NOTHINGGG worse than a bland fish. Citrus flavors, garlic, butter, or herbes de province to the rescue!
Pleaseeee make sure that you ONLY purchase wild-caught seafood. Farm-raised seafood means you’re eating some serious Frankenfish.
A lot of our seafood friends are also high in Omega-3 fats. The standard American diet tends to be super high in Omega-6 fats & severely lacking in the Omega-3 department. Ideally, our Omega-6 to Omega-3 ratio should be 1:1. Most people’s diets are 20:1 or 30:1 (talk about noooo chill)
Benefits of Omega-3s:
⚡️Supports heart health (lowers cholesterol & reduces risk of heart disease)
⚡️May help anxiety & depression
⚡️May improve menstrual discomfort
⚡️May help autoimmune disorders
⚡️Great for vision & may improve sleep
⚡️Great for gut health
⚡️Great for joint & bone health
⚡️Lower risk of various cancers
