With so many options in your local grocery store or restaurant, why choose seafood this month?

The USDA Guidelines recommend eating seafood at least twice a week, but only 1 in 10 of us are actually doing that. Seafood is high in protein, nutrients, and omega-3 fatty acids, and eating fish once or twice a week has been associated with a 36% reduction in death from heart disease and a 17% reduction in death from any cause.  Seafood is also high in essential vitamins and minerals and amino acids, and a major source of vitamin D, vitamin A, and vitamins C and E. Many types of seafood including shrimp, oysters, mussels, and clams are high in selenium, vitamin B12, phosphorous, choline, copper, and iodine.
