Focus on fish

Are you feeling that your meals are a little meat heavy of late? We can all get the feeling that we're a little over meat sometimes and it's making us feel sluggish. Meat is particularly hard to digest, especially red meat, so it's good to have some meat-free days.

Fish is a great way to have a break from meat and it's just so good for you! Packed with protein, vitamin D and lots of other nutrients, including omega-3 fatty acids, it's a fast way to fuel your body and brain.

But how about sourcing sustainable fish? In our part of the world, nestled along the east coast of Scotland, we are lucky to have access to many local fishmongers. If you can, try to buy from the fishmonger and don't be shy to ask them where the fish was from and where it was caught. Failing that, fish counters in big supermarkets are also well stocked. 

And how about your friendly fish van delivery? Again, we're lucky in our county to have a couple who visit the area each week. There's also some great online fish delivery initiatives like Fishbox that are well worth a try.

In terms of particular fish to try, while cod and haddock are definitely the popular choices, the lesser known coley and pollack are just as tasty white fish. Hake is also a sweet but meaty fish, which doesn't break down when it's cooking, so is great for curries.

To give you a little inspiration, here are a few of our favourite fish recipes:
