Dont underestimate the power of fish. Some people like it, some people dont like it because of the smell. I, personally, love it because of far more wonderful benefits fish can offer to your body.

Eating fish, helps to reduce risk of developing heart disease. Wonderful Omega-3 Fatty Acids help to break down protein that is needed to grow muscle and help our normal functioning of the brain. Currently, American Heart Association suggest that we eat fish at least twice a week. Scientists remind us that not all varieties of fish are rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Preference should be given mackerel, unsalted herring, sardines, salmon. One must also consider that many useful qualities are destroyed when frying fish.

Last week I chose to cook Tilapia Fillets, because they are low-calorie, low-fat, and high on protein. The fillets is easy to cook (toal 30 minutes) and can be served with any of your favorite vegetables.
