Seafoodies, it’s cold outside!
When the temperature drops, our appetite seems to do just the opposite. Something about the cooler weather tends to put our bodies on high alert: We’re craving comfort food! Instead of reaching for a quick fix with empty calories, we suggest satisfying that craving with some healthy seafood. Think of seafood as superfood-meets-comfort food, so it can help tame your hunger, satisfy your taste buds and also boost your immune system during cold and flu season.
We’ve got something for everyone with cod, shrimp, crab, scallops, salmon and Alaska Pollock dishes! What’s on the menu? Aromatic fish chowder, three-cheese seafood lasagna, smoked salmon hash and more: These are meals that really stick to the ribs and nourish the soul.
In addition to resetting our internal thermometer, these dishes provide plenty of healthy protein, omega-3s and other essential nutrients to keep us going strong all winter. To keep your body in top-top shape, the Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend eating 2 to 3 servings of seafood a week.
So, throw another log on the fire and cozy up to these hearty seafood recipes. We bet you’ll find a new cold-weather favorite!
