Lean Protein

Stumped about what to make for dinner? No problem! Fish can be a great way to add some variety to your meals!

Fish is a good source of protein without the saturated fat found in meats. And many types of fish are also rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which can boost heart health. Mackerel, herring, sardines, lake trout, albacore tuna, and salmon are all rich in omega-3s. The healthiest way to prepare the latest catch is to bake or grill it with olive oil, spices, and lemon wedges.

Shrimp (boiled, broiled, eaten hot or cold in a salad) is ideal to help you get out of a dinnertime rut — and scallops, too. And did you know that canned salmon is a slammin' way to add extra calcium to your diet?

Fish and shellfish — it's all good!
