It’s St. Patrick’s Day – time to paint your dinner plate green! Lucky for you, today’s blog features some yummy seafood recipes that pair perfectly with dark, leafy greens for a healthy, nutrient-packed meal.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – it’s so important that you fit in at least two servings of fish and shellfish each week, as recommended by the U.S. Dietary Guidelines. A great way to enjoy your good-for-you seafood is to prepare it with nutrient-rich, leafy green vegetables. Then, voilà, you’re now enjoying a deliciously star-studded entrée.
These green-and-seafood combos really pack their punch, especially when it comes to helping your heart perform at its best. In fact, The American Heart Association and other health organizations – including those dealing with pediatric care, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease and mental illness – promote seafood as part of a healthy diet.
So, by now, we hope you’re convinced to give some of our favorite St. Paddy’s Day and spring-inspired seafood pairings a try. Cheers!
