    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!

    Q:  We eat out a lot.  Could you give us some suggestions for Japanese and Chinese?

    A:    Dining out can be challenging because of the large portion sizes and the unknown of how foods are prepared.  You might look at a few dinners listed on your menu to get an idea of portions prior to dining out.  Here are a few suggestions when ordering.  Ask how items are prepared prior to ordering...
