Why Eating Fresh Fish & Seafood Is Important
Growing up on the east coast of Florida, I’ve been blessed with fresh seafood my entire life.
But it wasn’t until I got older and started to take a close look at my diet that I realized the importance of eating fresh fish and seafood. It’s packed with Omega 3’s, nutrients, and minerals.
Plus, who doesn’t love to go out and catch their own meal, and share it with family and friends?
It always tastes better when you earned it yourself!
Growing up in Florida, I’ve been surrounded by saltwater my entire life…and I love sharing my passion with others.
