Why eat seafood for breakfast? Beyond the obvious answer, because it’s darn tasty, eat a seafood breakfast for the health benefits. Fish contains two essential fatty acids, EPA and DHA. Studies have shown that people who are getting these fatty acids into their diet have improved concentration and mental capacity. Fish also contain high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, which reduce inflammation and decrease your risk of cardiovascular disease. Last but not least, fish is one of the only dietary sources of vitamin D, in which we humans are commonly deficient! In addition to vitamin D, fish provide other fat-soluble vitamins to the body such as Vitamins A, B and riboflavin!
