With the school year upon us we become a family that's constantly on the move! I am constantly looking for recipes that are not only quick but nutritionally sound. Gorton's Seafood has exactly what we are looking for! Our kids eat Gorton's without a fight plus they enjoy their products.
I know this company must be doing something right because each store we visited was extremely low or out of what I would consider kid friendly foods.
Fish and seafood – like shrimp, tilapia, and salmon – not only taste good, but are a natural source of lean protein and critical nutrients like vitamins and minerals including iron, zinc, and vitamins A, B and D. But what really sets seafood apart from other healthy foods is that it is a natural source of two healthy omega-3 fatty acids, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). Research shows these omega-3 fatty acids promote good health and may reduce your risk of chronic disease. Since our bodies cannot make omega-3 fatty acids, it’s important to regularly include them in our diets.
One of our favorites is the Simply Baked products!
Studies show that a diet containing omega-3 may:
- Promote heart health
- Decrease blood pressure, triglycerides, and cholesterol levels
- Improve arthritis and joint pain
- Lessen symptoms of depression and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- Support eye health
- Enhance brain growth and development
- Aid brain growth in unborn babies, infants and kids
- Decrease the risk for certain cancers
- Reduce the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease
