A Fishy Decision

Is farmed or wild salmon healthier for you?

An interesting article I found on Yahoo regarding the pros and cons of consuming Salmon.  Be it farmed or caught wild, consuming salmon has omega 3 which is good for your heart.  I choose wild because there is no added coloring that is present in farmed, which I find a bit disturbing.  However, farmed salmon from the good old USA is very regulated and is inspected unlike fish from Chile or Asian countries.  Read the label and it tells you the country of origin.

The article also states that eating too much salmon is not good for you.  I didn't know that.
Hope you enjoy the article and you can pick your wild coho or Atlantic farmed raised salmon based on knowledge, which is always a good way to make decisions.

Buon Apetito

We are here, in Europe, struggling with the dangers of e.coli in our veggies. I'll not worry about the salmon for now but thank you for the information.
