Eating Seafood as Part of a High Protein Diet
Did you know that oily fish also delivers Vitamin D?
Fresh fish is a great choice. White fish like haddock, hake and whiting is very low in fat and the oily fish like mackerel, trout and salmon is a fabulous source of omega-3 fatty acids which are vital for your body and your brain!
A 100g portion of baked fish provides an adult with about half of their daily protein requirements - that’s not half bad, is it?
Did you know that oily fish also delivers Vitamin D? Especially important in the darker months when we can’t get it from the sun so much!
Try to include shellfish too - not only are mussels good for your muscles - they also provide those fab fatty acids so good for our heart and brain as well as vitamins and minerals like zinc, iron and folic acid!.
Lobster, crab, clams and prawns all pack a powerful protein punch too.
With high protein diets, variety is the spice of life and seafood can certainly give you that - keeping your food interesting, tasty and healthy!
