Fish

Fish plays a big role on mediterranean diet and the benefits of eating seafood regularly are countless. The fact that Croatia, especially Istria, is a peninsula with a very long coastline, makes it possible to have a variety of fresh seafood.

Firstly, a seafood based diet is very low in fat, cholesterol and high in protein. A diet rich in Omega 3, is extremely beneficial for the brain and body function, particularly during developing ages, or on a late stage, maintaining a healthy brain function and preventing the brain from deteriorating.

A mediterranean seafood diet is also high in nutrients and vitamin D, a nutrient that most people are deficient in. It functions like a steroid hormone in the body. It can even avoid mood swing and prevent depression.

Good for the heart, brain and body, fish is an incredible nutritious and healthy ingredient towards a happy enjoyable life.
