Fish for important health benefits
At Jolliette we are always looking to create a super plate full of different healthy and tasty foods from the Food Triangle. We also explore and integrate foods rich in compounds such as antioxidants, fiber or fatty acids that are considered beneficial for one's health.
Do you want to know what we load in our shopping cart and which ingredients we consciously choose in our kitchen? We regularly shine our light on the choices we make. In the month of March, we chose fish and more specifically salmon for our monthly menu, in addition to many other useful and interesting ingredients. Fish has important health benefits, especially fatty fish. According to the Nutrition Information Center, fish is heart-friendly. Eating fish would also have a beneficial effect on cancer, arthritis, depression, behavioral disorders, the preservation of cognitive functions in old age and the prevention of degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, but this has not yet been scientifically proven, according to the center. Clear evidence for concrete dietary recommendations in this regard is still lacking.
Fish once or twice a week
It is recommended to eat fish or seafood once or twice a week, once oily fish. Why? A diet with too little omega-3 fatty acids from fish and shellfish is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. A portion of 120 to 130 g of fish (weighed raw) is sufficient.
