Smells a little fishy

 

Fish is a food that’s particularly good for your brain, due to its high concentration of omega-3 fatty acids; however, one of the most popular fish, Tilapia, actually contains very little of the beneficial fatty acids, according to research from the Wake Forest School of Medicine.

Instead, Tilapa is loaded with omega-6, which can cause inflammation that harms the heart. In fact, one author of the study said, β€œthe inflammatory potential of hamburger and pork bacon is lower than the average serving of farmed tilapia.”

So make sure your fish provides the right kind of fish fats!

Here are 5 good fish options:

1. Salmon

2. Mackerel

3. Trout

4. Whitefish

5. Bluefin Tuna

    Warm up: Run at the park, play in the playground…pull up, k2E…do the monkey on the bar, push up, box jump

    WOD: 5 min of L-Sit on the ring….Fool—15 squats

    I did it in 10 sets…average of 30 sec per L-Sit.

    It was really hard!! On the ring is much harder than the pipe! It’s hard on the arm more than I though!! But I am glad I did it!! πŸ™‚
