The American Heart Association has released new dietary guidelines saying that when it comes to healthy sources of protein, the best meal — fish. They noted that white fish dishes are tasty, easy to prepare and very healthy for the heart.
«We recommend that people eat fish at least twice in Week. This makes for a filling meal that is relatively low in saturated fat compared to something like a hamburger or quiche», — said Alice Lichtenstein, senior scientist and director of cardiovascular nutrition.
However, what side dish you eat your fish with also matters. According to the American Heart Association, fresh greens are best, especially cilantro, avocados, onions and garlic. If you want variety, you can add pieces of pineapple, broccoli and brown rice.
Recall that it was previously reported that this side dish can cause sudden spikes in blood sugar: which doctors recommend avoiding.
