Well That’s Fishy

Everyone associates October with…

A. Kids dressing up as ghosts, goblins, witches, princesses, Justin Bieber… and running through the streets because of their sugar highs, in the pursuit for the house that doles out the BEST CANDY!

OR

B. Adults dressing up as naughty nurses… cavemen… the President or something that shows as much skin as possible. LMFAO – How about a naked Obama running around the street in search of some Gold Chocolate Coins? (You can thank me later for that BRILLIANT costume idea). 

Costume or real? You be the judge!

While you all may LOVE buying MONSTER-SIZED bags of candy at your local drug store (they’re for the trick-or-treaters, right? Uh dude… it’s October 9th)… What you should really be focusing on this month is that it’s NATIONAL SEAFOOD MONTH!

Fish and seafood are “candy from the sea”! Imagine handing out clams and oysters to that kid dressed up as Optimus Prime!

But seriously, fish and seafood are not just delicious, they’re packed to the gills with health promoting properties…

  • Omega 3 Fatty Acids: These essential fats keep your heart and brain healthy. Two omega-3 fatty acids found in fish are EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). Our bodies don’t produce omega-3 fatty acids so we must get them through the food we eat. AKA: EAT FISH!
  • Selenium: You may not have to be as scared of mercury as you once were when you thought about scarfing down a boatload of fish. You see, large ocean fish also tend to have higher concentrations of selenium, a trace mineral essential to human health that bonds to the mercury and prevents it from being absorbed in your brain. (To be on the safe side though, limiting consumption of king mackerel, swordfish, shark, tilefish, and some tunas may still be a good idea). 
  • Fish are also WONDERFUL sources of protein and vitamins such as D and B2 (riboflavin), calcium and phosphorus and a great source of minerals, such as iron, zinc, iodine, magnesium, and potassium

So which fish are BEST to scarf down (because they’re highest in omega-3 fats, sustainable, etc), whether it be in your sushi roll, at a seafood buffet, your kitchen or a fancy restaurant? 

Wild Alaskan King Salmon

Sardines

Sable Fish/ Black Cod

Arctic Char

Herring

Mackerel 

While those six fish deserve top honors,

Tuna and…

Anchovies…

Also deserve some time in the spot light as well…

So what will you be handing out to trick-or-treaters this year? I’m thinking ANCHOVIES!
