A lot of us are focused on eating healthfully to boost our immune systems. At Dish on Fish, we love that seafood is not only delicious but may help boost immunity. And, today we are pairing it with whole grains.
We’re highlighting a few of our favorite seafood and whole grains pairings: Salmon and quinoa. Tuna Puttanesca. Shrimp and brown rice. Fish and barley.
Seafood boasts nutrients with superstar health benefits, and studies show that eating it regularly (two to three times each week) can help boost heart and brain health, reduce the risk of chronic disease and may even help you live longer. It’s also a great source of protein, vitamins and immune-boosting omega-3 fatty acids, like DHA and EPA.
Whole grains also offer numerous health benefits, such as helping to maintain a healthy weight and cholesterol levels. Studies also have shown that whole grains can help reduce the risk of stroke, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease.
Together, a seafood and whole grains duo make a tasty powerhouse packed with a nutritional punch. So, as you are looking for work-from-home lunch or quick dinner ideas, check these out.
