Gone Fishing

I wrote a 1,400 word post about omega-3 fatty acids a couple weeks ago.  I have been debating with myself if I should post it.  It got a little preachy and new age sounding.  It was my attempt to explain why I'm adding fish back into my diet after four years eating mostly vegetarian.  In the end, I don't think this blog is the place to put all that information.  It's out there if you want to find it.  Here's a couple links if you want to know more:

The long and short of it is I’m adding fish back into my diet for my health and my kid’s health.

I've been experimenting with sardines, anchovies, and mackerel recipes. From what I've been reading those are the lowest in mercury and least in danger of being over fished.

So far I've found an excellent anchovies, fennel linguine pasta that I'll share with you all next.

How do you all feel about this? Do you eat fish? Am I going to completely alienate my audience with this change of direction?

  1. It is important to listen to your body and what it needs. I tend to eat a vegetarian diet but vary from time to time depending on what I am craving or what is available.

    Sardines and anchovies have always scared me so I am an interested in seeing the recipes you have tried out.

  2. I figure if it feels like food, go for it. I still eat fish because it tastes good. Sometimes I feel guilty but I try to be responsible about it and eat what is sustainably harvested. No alienation over here! :)
