Eat– for Good Health

Everyone in my family loves salmon if I serve it with dill sauce!  It’s fine to pan fry salmon with a scant amount of oil if you detest using a broiler.  Isn’t broccoli or baby broccolini delicious with any kind of fish?  DILL SAUCE: 1/3 cup fat free sour cream, 1/3 cup light mayo, 1 tablespoon chopped scallion, 1 teaspoon lemon juice, 1 teaspoon horseradish sauce, and a dash of pepper!

    Oh my, yes! The American Heart Association recommends two servings of fish every week. Salmon is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, which help keep blood from forming clots and protect against irregular heartbeats that may cause a heart attack.

    Absolutely, Janessa! Thousands of research studies have documented how the oils known as omega-3 fatty acids can benefit the cardiovascular system, particularly among people diagnosed with coronary artery disease. The incredible volume of research on this topic creates difficulty for many physicians and patients to stay current with findings and recommendations related to these oils.

    Besides the Omega-3s, recent studies show the presence of bioactive peptides in salmon which support healthy joint cartilage and other types of tissue. One bioactive peptide named calcitonin has been of special interest because it is also made in the human body by the thyroid gland, and we know that it helps regulate and stabilize the balance of collagen and minerals in bone and surrounding tissue.

    What about cognitive function? Much research has proven docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) to be the most important fat found in the brain, and the substantial content of this omega-3 fatty acid in salmon explains the benefits of salmon intake for thinking and the decreased risk of certain brain-related problems. Salmon intake is associated with decreased chances of depression, hostility in some studies of teenagers, and decreased cognitive decline in older people. Some studies have also demonstrated an association between IQ and a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids.

    So true, Jill. Thanks. Food that’s good for us makes us feel good, and vice versa. Part of liking fish is intellectual, but we can make a great sauce to make it taste even better.
