Boost Your Body With Seafood This WinterBack «
07 December 2016
We all know that our diets have a significant impact on how we feel, and that a poor diet can lead to a host of health problems, from minor issues like indigestion to more serious conditions like type 2 diabetes.
So it makes sense to think about what we’re fuelling our bodies with - especially now that we’re into the busy Christmas season.
According to dietician Jennifer Low, salmon is just one food we should be eating, as it can help combat stress.
Speaking to the Express she explained that salmon is rich in protein, which means it also contains an amino acid known as tryptophan. The body uses this to help make serotonin in the brain, which helps to keep us calm.
As a quick and tasty meal, she suggests flaking fresh salmon fillets into hot pasta, with peas, and a little low-fat soft cheese, finished off with a sprinkling of lemon juice.
The newspaper also highlighted salmon as a superfood that can have a number of health benefits, including reducing the risk of developing dementia and cardiovascular disease due to the Omega-3 fatty acids it contains.
Meanwhile, Men’s Health magazine has put together a number of recipes designed to boost your body during the winter. Among them are protein-packed mackerel frittatas, which are quick and simple.
The recipe contains just three ingredients - eggs, a smoked mackerel fillet and spinach. According to the magazine, it’s perfect post-workout food as these ingredients will aid growth and repair. And if you make sure you use free range eggs, you’ll also be topping up your vitamin D.View External Site >>>
