More fish, less meat for this lady!

As I have been working on my thesis and waiting for my knee to heal, I read a few articles on going vegetarian. Being impressed by the benefits of eating fish instead of meat, I challenged myself not to consume chicken, pork or beef for the next two weeks and see whether I feel better or not.

Benefits of eating fish instead of meat:

*Less chance to suffer from asthma

*Omega 3 fatty acidsย contribute to the health of brain tissue and the retina

*People who consume fish are less likely to suffer from cancer

*Eating fish every week reduces the risk of heart disease and stroke

*Improves blood vessel elasticity

*Lowers blood pressure, blood fats and boosts “good” cholesterol

*Lower risk of developing dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease

My favourite fish meals. Real yum and health!

*Better eyesight

*Lower incidence of depression (depression is linked to low levels of omega 3 fatty acids in the brain)

*Relieves the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis and autoimmune disease

*Reduce the risk of delivering a premature baby

    Oh, I do eat fish quite a lot. It is just that I cannot (and will not) give up chicken and pork completely. I love my meat too much to bid them adieu! I think as long as we have a bit of everything, in moderation, we should be fine! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. ive been a pescatarian most of my life. i eat a little meat here now, but still stick to a 80% vegetarian / 20% fish diet. welcome to the club ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I’m a big fan of sea food, and yes, if I have to choose between meat (of any kind) and fish, I owuld definitely prefer the latter. Will be waiting to find out the results of your experiment.
