Protein-Packed Healthy Seafood Dishes

Here’s to another Sunday, seafoodies!

Mastered the holidays? Check. Rang in the New Year? Check. Did the hustle and bustle from holiday season zap your energy? Double-check! There’s so much joy this time of year, but with all the excitement and exertion of energy, don’t forget to take care of yourself. We have the perfect solution to refuel: protein-packed seafood. Today, we’re bringing you a lineup of delicious seafood dishes that will fuel you all week.

Almost everyone knows that protein is an important building block for a healthy body. Seafood not only helps your body (bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, heart, and brain), it’s also an incredible source of energy. Seafood is a go-to for people on-the-go (especially this time of year), or maybe those who are grinding hard at the gym for their new year’s resolution.

Because seafood pairs easily with many other nutrient-rich ingredients (hello omega 3 fatty acids), there are plenty of must-make protein-packed recipes out there to choose from. Don’t just take our word for it, both the Dietary Guidelines for Americans and the American Heart Association recommend 2-3 weekly servings (at least) of seafood. Ready for an energy boost? Let’s get cooking:
