“I know that I should eat more fish, but I have a hard time finding recipes I can get excited about. This is a great recipe because the fruit salsa gives a fresh flavor.” Pat R.
A Note from Dr. B.:
Tuna and swordfish also contain Omega-3 fatty acids, which have heart-protective benefits. Another way to help your heart and your body is to increase your physical activity. Exercising regularly builds healthy muscles (your heart is a muscle), joints and bones and reduces the risk of heart disease, cancer and diabetes.
