Thursday Fit Question

Is Fattier Fish Healthier?

In the case of salmon, the answer is yes. Salmon is fantastic sources of DHA, the omega-3 fatty acid that is essential for brain development, which they also get from phytoplankton. DHA is stored in salmon’s fat, most often in the belly, and as a 4-ounce serving of salmon can dish up 2,400 mg omega-3s. Farm salmon are also fattier than wild salmon, because they are fed a diet of grains and vegetable oils. Have a piece of salmon tonight for dinner.

My favorite thing to do is to wake up early and start the day off with a good sweat. There's nothing more exciting then trying and new workout. I love to create new workouts to help people get fit. View all posts by fitsgreaterthanskinny
