Tip of the Week:

The American Diabetes Association recommends eating 2-3 servings of non-fried fish per week for dietary omega-3 fatty acids.  Seafood contains omega-3 fatty acids that are considered a good type of fat because of the benefits they provide.  Omega-3 benefits include:

  • reduction of blood triglyceride levels,
  • prevention of blood clotting (which can cause blood vessels to narrow and ultimately become blocked),
  • possible reduction of blood pressure, and 
  • food sources are low in saturated fat.
Strive to eat seafood 2-3 times per week!
