2017 is here and so is your chance to completely revamp your diet. You’ve been looking to eat more healthily, and we’re going to show you how you can do it. By taking advantage of the seafood in Orlando, you can implement these four fish into your everyday meals and start improving your eating habits right away. Fish provide you an easy alternative to red meats, avoiding cholesterol and excess fat while achieving your protein intake goals. Here are Lombardi’s top four recommendations.

Catfish

Known as the fish with nine lives, this healthy source of protein will make you feel like you really can live forever! It’s chock full of omega-3 fatty acids that help with maintaining a healthy heart and brain. They also contain selenium, which is key in cell metabolism. Grill or broil some catfish sourced from America this afternoon!

Salmon

Nobody is new to Salmon, so you already know how good it can be, as it can be prepared in a variety of dishes. The best thing about this fish is that it, too, is full of omega-3 fatty acids, which means well-being all around. A word of caution: larger and older salmon typically contain a high level of mercury, which can be toxic to humans. Ensure you only have one serving of Atlantic or farm-raised salmon every two months, although you may enjoy pacific canned salmon twice weekly!

Tuna

We love tuna because it is inexpensive, yet still delicious. It provides your body with the protein it needs to function, all while doing so with low levels of fat. It also has vitamin B12, D, calcium, and iron. Choose skipjack or light tuna varieties to avoid the over-consumption of mercury.

Sardines

If only your diet was as tightly packed of fish as a can is packed with sardines! Sardines are inexpensive and provide protein, a multitude of B vitamins, calcium, vitamin D, and those healthy omega-3 fatty acids we are all seeking. They are easy to eat right out of the can and can be paired with some crackers to create a quick, on-the-go meal. If you are watching your sodium, select a low-sodium variety.
With fish, you’ve got your healthy-eating resolution in the bag! Your 2017 is going to be so peppered by your increased consumption of seafood in Orlando that you’re going to wonder how you ever went without it!
