My husband and nephew laugh whenever we order take out, or if we eat in a restaurant, because they’ll look at the menu and know I’m probably going to get the fish.
Yes, it’s true. Fish, is one of my favorite animal proteins.
I also love it cooking it at home, and I encourage my clients to do the same.
Unfortunately, many complain that cooking fish makes the whole house smell like fish.
There’s a remedy for that!
Purchase fresh fish and bake it in the oven rather than cook it on top of the stove.
It works like a charm.
When the fish is contained within the oven, you gain all of the benefits of this protein, without suffering from stinky house syndrome.
Some benefits of eating fish include:
- Anti-inflammatory food
- Rich in omega 3’s
- Maintains cardiovascular health
- Reduces risk of heart attack and stroke
- Iodine-rich to support thyroid and overall health
So, don’t be afraid to cook fish at home.
