Fish & Chips - Healthier Than You May Know
While fish and chips isn’t necessarily the first thing that comes to mind when thinking healthy eating, fish actually has many health benefits. Even when it’s deep fried, battered or crumbed, fish is crammed full of omega-3 fatty acids – vital for healthy brain activity and to reduce the risk of heart disease. Omega-3 fatty acids are also important in early child development fish, so can be an excellent choice for expectant mothers. And for a really healthy option you can always grill or bake instead of fry. Plus fish actually has lower levels of cholesterol than other proteins like red meat or chicken. So, if you want to stay healthy and feel like some fish and chips, think of the health benefits and cut yourself some slack.
