The US Department of Agriculture announced new dietary guidelines to help Americans make healthier food choices. Their main recommendation was to encourage the two thirds of Americans that are overweight to eat less food, and focus on eating nutrient-dense food like vegetables, low fat dairy, lean meats, and seafood.
Specifically, we are encouraged to "Increase the amount and variety of seafood consumed by choosing seafood in place of some meat and poultry."
To help you on this journey, and to make sure you make sustainable seafood choices, we hope you will find these resources helpful:
