Featured Food: Mahi Mahi for omega-3’s

 

  Keeping with the tropical theme, today’s featured food is Mahi Mahi (also known as a dolphin fish). We thought we’d give it some attention (since salmon usually snatches all of the fame). It is a beautiful fish as you can tell!

   Mahi Mahi is a great source of protein; 3 ounces contains 25.5 grams! It is also an excellent source of selenium, B3 and B6 (B6 is important for red blood cell formation, regulation of glucose, protein digestion, and the immune and nervous systems functioning. Selenium provides important antioxidant enzymes). Best of all it is a good source of Omega-3’s (which we’ve discussed before, but they’re important for creativity, cognition, stress-levels, and more!)

  This is a nice, short column today. Make sure you look for wild Mahi Mahi. Go out and try some Mahi Mahi today (maybe coat it in coconut flour (check Monday’s article) and serve with some fresh grilled veggies. Yum!
