Healthy Diet

 
Studies show that adding fish to your diet can be good for your heart, but if you’re turned off by the smell or its taste, how can you reap the benefits? Registered dieticians at Atlantic Health System offer these tips for meeting the American Heart Association’s recommended two servings of fish per week. When cooking, close all the doors in your house to keep the scent from spreading or try preparing fish in microwave-safe bags. Those with a sensitive palate can try eating white fish, such as cod or flounder, which are milder in flavor than some other species.
