October Is National Seafood Month
This post is sponsored by United Supermarkets.
Brenda Garcia, corporate dietician with United Supermarkets, joined me today to discuss the benefits of seafood. This may come as a surprise to you, as it did to me, but October is National Seafood Month.
Garcia discussed the great options available at United Supermarkets when it comes to fresh seafood. She even brought up that fishing boats are able to freeze fish right on the boat, which ensures the freshness when it gets to Lubbock.
Garcia told listeners they should try salmon because of the great health benefits, like Omega 3 Fatty Acids and how good it is for your heart. My wife and I often pick up the salmon Ready Meal from United. It's delicious and easy to cook.
Garcia also reminded listeners that the seafood counter at their stores can steam and season your fish.
Last week, Garcia talked about apples and the different health benefits that apples may have. She also explained the saying, an apple a day keeps the doctor away. And while that may not be exactly true, apples are a great source of Vitamin C and they have other health benefits that might just keep you healthy this fall.
Remember that when you're shopping, the seafood department at United Supermarkets locations can always provide advice. Customers can also schedule tours with dieticians at Market Street locations for more answers to questions.
