Ever notice how confusing nutritional science can get? I’m forever reading and studying what’s going on in the world of nutrition and often times all of the contradictory information out there leaves me wanting to pull my hair out! It can be rather bothersome.
This is why I try to over-emphasize (to my clients and my readers) NOT to get to hung up on all of the details of nutrition. You learn as you go, apply what you can, laugh and relax as often as possible and whatever you do, DON’T let the nitty-gritty get you crazy (we gotta learn to let it go people!).
We hear a lot about healthy Omega-3’s these days and how beneficial it is to add fresh fish to our diets (especially fish that are rich in these Omega-3’s [ie. salmon]). And since it seems like there is always something new to know when it comes to adding salmon into my diet, I thought I would try and do my best to simplify all the info out there and give you guys the bottom line.
Now, although my goal was to simplify this for you, as I watched the video through, I thought that even in my simplifying efforts, it was still a little confusing! Hopefully you guys will be able to walk away with some good info on the “do’s” and “dont’s” of salmon after watching BUT if you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to ask me.
Between the video and the comments, hopefully we can clear up any confusion there is around buying salmon.
