Expert Tips

“My main meal is at noon. I eat a well-rounded low-fat, low-calorie lunch with a lot of fruit and veggies included. This recipe makes a great low-fat, low-calorie lunch, and I can add whatever vegetables I like.” Wanda S.

Omega-3 fatty acids benefit the heart of healthy people and those at high risk of—or who have—cardiovascular disease. For this reason and because fish is also high in protein and doesn’t contain the saturated fat that fatty meat products do, the American Heart Association recommends eating fish, especially fatty fish, at least two times per week.
