September 16, 2011 by Leanne Vogel March 29, 2017As much as Kevin would love to have salmon everyday for dinner for the rest of eternity, I try to switch up our animal proteins on a daily basis. When I added animal proteins back to my life a couple of years ago, I made a promise to myself that I would eat the cleanest option for my body and the environment. We purchase local grass-fed and finished wild game, grain-fed poultry, and free-range eggs from Horizon Meats. Their products aren’t certified organic because the certification is quite expensive for local farmers, but the quality is just as fantastic as organic (and much cheaper, too!) In school we’d learned that seafood was; by far, one of the best foods we could eat. Seafood is lower in cholesterol than other animal proteins, lower in fat, high in omega-3’s and promotes anti-inflammatory responses. But what about the impact seafood has on the environment? What types of fish are better than others? When I was introduced to Monetary Bay Aquiarium Seafood Watch I nearly died with excitement. Seafood Watch recommends which seafood to buy or avoid, educates consumers on fishing methods, and helps consumers and businesses become advocates for ocean-friendly seafood. You can get their recommendations online, in their printed pocket guides, or on your mobile device. Basically, you search for the fish; in my case, salmon, and Seafood Watch tells you what type to choose! Each seafood search provides you with a table; like the one above, a consumer alert – what to watch for, summary, recipe alternatives, and links to the scientific studies that prove their recommendations. It’s such an amazing resource! Guess what type of salmon I used for this recipe?
I liked you on FB! Sure hope I win!I’ll send you an email today :) Thanks everyone for participating. Maybe I say this every time… but I’m already excited for next months’ product. It’s a good one!
