Better Than Wild Salmon?
We all know that wild salmon is an excellent source of anti inflammatory Omega 3s. That, along with the fact that the taste is absolutely phenomenal, whether eaten raw, cooked on a cedar plank or simply grilled, makes it a great choice to eat as part of a True Paleo Diet.
Could there be anything better?
Did you know that there are actually other sea creatures that provide even more of this healthy fat?
In particular, per four ounce serving:
- Anchovies: 2,300-2,400 mg.
- Tuna: 1,700 mg.
- Sardines: 1,100-1,600 mg.
- Trout: 1,000-1,100 mg.
Of course, we also need to factor in Mercury content and tuna, of course, is ranked from high to highest Mercury content, depending on the type.
If you’re pregnant, or trying to become pregnant, or breast feeding, current recommendations are not to eat more than 12 oz of low mercury fish should be consumed weekly and high mercury fish should be kept to only three 6-oz servings per month.
Fortunately, of the list above, trout, anchovies and sardines are all ranked as ‘low mercury fish’, so pile them on and be sure to include them as part of your weekly regime!
