Fish is often recommended as a lean source of healthy protein and omega-3 fatty acids. Great! So long as the fish are raised in a healthy environment, they should be healthy enough to eat. Although there are opposing viewpoints in the wild caught vs farmed fish issue, choosing the right fish to eat can be difficult.

The American Heart Association recommends two servings of fish a week, consisting of 3.5-oz portions. Wild caught Alaskan salmon is one of the best choices for wild caught fish since it is eco-friendly and considered a superfood due to its omega-3 content. Omega-3 fats are anti-inflammatory and good for brain and heart health.
