Wild salmon and mackerel – these types of fish are known as oily fish and are very rich in omega 3 fats, otherwise known as essential fats. They are called essential for one reason, because our body needs them!
Dont be afraid of the word FAT. Yes, we need to keep our intake of bad fats to a minimum but we also do need them, along with good fats.
Starving your body of fats is doing you more harm than good. Fats are needed for energy, metabolism (if you cut out fats from your diet to lose weight, bad news….we need fats to lose weight!), good skin and for a healthy brain (good fats reduce the risk of depression, Alzheimiers, poor memory etc).
So make sure you have a good level of omega 3 fats in your diet. These oily fish are great to add to salads or even as a snack. They’re high in protein too so an ideal food for after a work out, plus they will keep you fuller for longer, along with keeping your brain in tip top condition 🐟🐠🐟
