Fish on a Friday…

With more and more of us being encouraged to live a healthier lifestyle,

what are the benefits of eating fish?

Fish is a super-food. Packed with vitamins and minerals, and a major source of

omega-3 fatty acids, fish can help to protect against a range of diseases,

from cancer to heart disease, depression to arthritis.

 

Which fish should we be eating?

 

White fish like cod are a good source of low-fat protein and minerals.

Oily fish such as sardines, pilchards, salmon and mackerel have the

highest concentrations of omega 3 fatty acids.

Crab, lobster and mussels come into the shellfish group and contain

selenium, thought to have cancer-fighting properties.

So why not make use of of our local shops and fish vendors across

Lancing, Worthing and Adur?

Lancing even has a mobile fishmonger that regularly parks up in the Monks pub

car park most Thursdays and Fridays, and has a wide and tasty variety on offer.
