Let’s EAT Fish… NOT just talk about it!

The health benefits of eating fish should give you the motivation to consume it... NOT just talk about it! Most people talk about the importance of eating fatty fish and the health benefits of eating two meals of fish per week for heart health. However, the responses we Dietitians hear most when talking about fish and heart health is, “I don’t eat fish because I don’t know how to cook fish” and "I don't think I like fish".

As Dietitians, we usually get confused with being “Chefs”. Many of the Dietitians I know, including myself, would never claim to be a Chef! For the most part we are great cooks, but only when we are armed with a great recipe. 

Here at Seattle Sutton’s we leave the yummy flavor paring to the expert…
our very own Chef Marcus! 

Chef Marcus makes it both convenient and tasty so you'll be sure to LOVE fish! We've had many customers tell us they didn't think they'd like fish, but when they try our fish meals they learn that they actually enjoy the flavor!

Why is it important to eat fish? To begin with, fish is a low-fat high-quality protein. Fish is filled with omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins such as D and B2 (riboflavin). Fish is rich in calcium and phosphorus and a great source of minerals, such as iron, zinc, iodine, magnesium, and potassium. And if that's not enough, fish is packed with protein, vitamins, and nutrients that can lower blood pressure and help reduce the risk of a heart attack or stroke. The American Heart Association recommends eating fish at least twice per week as part of a healthy diet.

The Amazing Benefits of Eating Fish

  • Helps maintain a healthy heart by lowering blood pressure and reducing the risk of sudden death, heart attack, abnormal heart rhythms, and strokes.
  • Aids in healthy brain function and infant development of vision and nerves during pregnancy.
  • May decrease the risk of depression, ADHD, Alzheimer's disease, dementia, and diabetes.
  • May prevent inflammation and reduce the risk of arthritis

At Seattle Sutton’s, we offer the American Heart Association’s recommendation of at least 2 fish meals per week on both our 1200 Calorie and 2000 Calorie Traditional Plans. We have a total of 10 fish meals in our 5 week Menu Cycle!
