I really regret eating healthy today … said no-one ever.

The food that we feed to our children will influence their eating habits as an adult so it is essential that we instil good food habits and get them in to the best routine as early as we possibly can.

It’s important however to eat the right foods at any age and it’s never too late to start. Life can be busy and we are often swept along feeling like we are chasing our tails that we regularly feel we just simply don’t have the time or the energy to buy the freshest ingredients and assign time to cooking. You really will reap the benefits if you just give it a try and you will wonder why it has taken you so long to take the plunge.

Fish is one of the best foods that you can eat, there are so many health benefits. Eating fish at least 1-2 times per week is considered sufficient to reap the rewards that it offers to our bodies. Not only is it delicious in taste but there are a whole host of recipes available out there (and in our recipe section too) for you to try, it might even become your new guilty pleasure.

So what is it about Fish that makes it so healthy?

Well here are just a few facts to give you a bit more of an insight:

01. Fish is very high in Omega 3 fatty acids – this lowers blood pressure and decreases the risk factor for disease.

02. Fish is a great source of protein. Eating foods that are high in protein help your body to heal after injury, help you maintain muscle mass during weight loss and protect bone health.

03. It offers a good source of Potassium – helping to control blood pressure by preventing excess water retention.

04. Fish can help fight inflammation, the root cause of most chronic diseases including heart disease, diabetes and even cancer.

05. Fatty fish such as salmon have been found to help reduce mental health concerns such as depression, decrease anxiety and help to slow down age related memory loss.

06. Eating fatty fish may also lead to improved sleep which in its own right will help aid stress, anxiety and depression.

07. Regular fish consumption is linked to a 24% lower risk of children developing asthma.

08. A single serving of cooked salmon (around 4oz) contains around 100% of the recommended intake of vitamin D.
