This month, it’s all about heart! Hearts are the symbol of love, and in February, American Heart Month, we spread awareness of the importance of loving our hearts.
One excellent way to show your heart some love is to incorporate fish twice a week to improve heart health! Those who eat fish regularly are less likely to develop cardiovascular disease. When you eat fish, you’re not eating other protein sources that may be higher in cholesterol-raising saturated fats (the bad kind of fat). What you’re getting instead are unsaturated omega-3 fatty acids, which reduce inflammation in the body that can damage blood vessels and lead to heart disease.

Fatty fish like salmon, mackerel, herring, lake trout, sardines and tuna pack the highest omega-3 fatty acid punch, but if you’re not already eating fish, any fish will help you do good for your heart!
May we suggest a romantic dinner for two?
Fish also pairs elegantly with a good bottle of wine. Not to mention some red roses, romantic music, and some soft candlelight. Love the one you’re with, and enjoy a cozy date night – in!
