Heart healthy seafood recipes don’t have to be bland or boring! Use the tasty heart healthy seafood recipes we’re sharing today and then join us in taking the Seafood Nutrition Partnership’s health pledge. Commit to eating fish two times per week to raise awareness for heart health.
Some eye opening facts about heart health:
FACT #1: The USDA Dietary Guidelines recommend consuming at least two servings of seafood per week, but only 10 percent of Americans follow that recommendation.
FACT #2: Studies show that eating two servings per week so can reduce the risk of heart disease by 30-50% and extend lifespans by an average of 2.2 years.
If those are not two great reasons to cook up some heart healthy seafood recipes, we don’t know what would be!
The Seafood Nutrition Partnership is raising heart health awareness with their Heart Health Pledge. The Pledge is a simple commitment to eat seafood twice a week, but there are no specific requirements beyond that.
We’ve signed up and our goal is to have 500 of you take the pledge with us before the end of March. Anyone who signs up will receive a monthly newsletter that includes tips, recipes and encouragement for starting a journey toward a healthier heart. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. It’s free and fun, and your heart will be healthier for it! Grab your friends and family members and you can all make the commitment together!
To make the commitment, take the Heart Health Pledge here, and then join in with us on social media.
