Whether you are a vegetarian or a Paleo dieter, there is one thing that should be in common for both diets: fish. While fish is definitely a meat and thus does not fit into the vegetarian category, it is often considered the only food that vegetarians are willing to incorporate into their diet. If you want to take advantage of the benefits we explain below, it is worth it to you to get this super food:
- Fish has omega-3 fatty acids – For your brain, the number one nutrient it can get are omega-3 fatty acids and particularly DHA and EPA. These are two of the most important because it is what your brain is made of. If you eat these nutrients you are going to get the best results and have a much more efficient work day.
- Fish is full of lean protein – Protein is important no matter who you are and some people (Vegetarians) need it more than others. The good thing about fish is that it is a lean source of protein rather than a fatty one. This means that you will have no problems with other health detracting features of the food.
Because of these two things alone, you should eat more fish and realize that not only is it healthy but it tastes great too! Most people who are starting off with a fish diet add some glaze and sauces to the fish before cooking it. The process is great and you’ll find that there are many ways that you can use this to your advantage to get a better brain and a better body.
