Health Benefits of Fish Tacos
People come from far and wide for Verde Kitchen’s fish tacos because they are the best on Long Island. Though our loyal customers keep coming back for the flavor, they are also reaping in a boatload of health benefits from the fish we serve. Read on to learn how our delicious fish tacos can help boost you and your family’s health!
For starters, fish is chockfull of omega-3 fatty acids, which are necessary for proper brain function. Is your mind feeling a bit foggy these days? Your diet may be lacking in essential omega-3s, and fish tacos may be just what the doctor ordered …
Fish is also a hearty source of protein, and protein makes us feel full faster, so even a few of our fish tacos will satiate your hunger. For those trying to lose a few quarantine pounds, fish is a great option. On a similar note, fish is a big “heart-healthy food”, meaning it can help boost cardiovascular health and assist in preventing heart attacks and strokes.
Additionally, fish is high in vitamin D, something essential for bone health and good moods. It’s hard to believe, but an alarming 41.6 percent of Americans have low levels of vitamin D! Add to this the fact we have all been indoors a lot more this past year and have missed out on our normal doses of vitamin D from the sun’s rays, and it’s safe to say we could all use a boost of vitamin D.
Our fish tacos (Tacos Pescado) are made of lightly battered local fish and are topped with cabbage, avocado, crema, and a grapefruit habanero hot sauce. If you’re taking a break from tortillas, you can also add fish to our Ensalada Verde, a flavorful green salad with pickled tomatillo, toasted sesame, and a tomato chile vinaigrette — yum!
