Hello, fellow seafoodies!
Can you believe it’s already March? We hope the groundhog is right and this month brings longer, warmer days with some hints of spring.
We love how many seafood specials are going on this time of year, with Lent in full swing and “Fish Fridays” on the brain. From seafood counters to restaurant menus, there’s plenty of inspiration and options available to meet your goal of eating seafood at least twice a week – so no excuses!
And, don’t forget, not only is seafood incredibly versatile, it is the premier food source for omega-3s (omega-3s are those fatty acids you keep hearing about that are absolutely vital for maintaining a healthy brain and heart). Meaning, incorporating seafood into your household menu at least 2-3 times a week can help prevent heart disease and provide your bodies with the nutrients they need to grow and glow!
In short, there’s something to please every palate this month. So, we’re challenging you to prepare seafood every Friday using our March Meal Plan as a guide.
Ready, set, go fish!
