benefits-eating-seafoodAs the New Year really gets into full swing, so many of us are starting to be even more conscious of our health choices and what it is that we are eating. After all, eating healthy food can not only help you look your best, but help you feel your best as well. This is where seafood comes in. There are so many great benefits of eating seafood that can help you fuel your mind and body and have you feeling your best. Don’t believe us? Here are just seven of our favorite benefits.

1. Seafood is Filled With Nutrients. If there is one big thing to remember with seafood is that it isn’t just low in the bad stuff, but it is filled with the good stuff. Seafood is packed with nutrients, including, vitamin B, B-complex vitamins and vitamin A. Some fish, like tuna is even filled with vitamin D, which is great for the bones and for immune system.

We Recommend trying The Big Eye Tuna Poke here at The Pool House. It is delicious, and filled with that fresh tuna that can give you a boost of vitamin D.

2. Seafood Can Boost Your Brain. Let’s be honest, we could all benefit from a little extra brain power. The good news is, the omega-3s in seafood can do just that. They help with brain growth in infants and children, can boost cognitive function in aging women and can help lower the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease. That’s pretty powerful stuff.

We recommend trying our Bay Shrimp Cocktail. It is light, delicious, great for sharing and it is served with avocado and corn tortilla chips. It is good for your brain and good for sharing

3. Seafood is Good for Your Heart. Heart health is so important for both men and women at all ages. Seafood is high in protein and low in saturated fat, not to mention filled with those omega 3s that can really help with heart health and reducing the risk of cardiovascular events.

We recommend trying our fresh sashimi, it is good for your heat and will fill up your appetite as well.

4. Seafood Eases Joint Pain. If you are worried about early aching and stiffness in your joints, start adding seafood to your diet, research has found it can reduce joint stiffness and help ease the symptoms of arthritis.

We Recommend trying our Fish Tacos, they are made with fresh local Yellowtail and aren’t just good for you, they taste good as well.

5. Seafood Can Help You Maintain Your Eyesight. It is all about those Omega 3 fatty acids again when it comes to seafood and eyesight as eating seafood regularly can actually help your vision and prevent vision decline. Another fun fact is that fish and shellfish can also boost your night vision.

We Recommend trying our Main Lobster Roll, after all, there is no better shellfish than Lobster.

6. Seafood Can Give You Better Skin- Who doesn’t love nourished, moisturized, youthful looking skin? The omega-3 and fatty acids in seafood can help moisturize the skin, reduce acne and protect the skin from UV rays… although if you are spending the afternoon at Pool House, we still recommend some sunscreen.

We Recommend trying our Coconut Ceviche, it is light, fresh and great for sharing.

7. Seafood Can Help Fight Against Depression. New research on omega 3s fatty acids (as found in seafood) and depression have found that eating seafood can not only reduce the risk of depression, but can actually help treat depression as well, and give you a more positive outlook on life.

We Recommend trying any of our seafood dishes, with a dose of sunshine on the pool deck at Pool House, as it may be just what you need to get over those winter blues.
