Well That’s Fishy

Everyone associates October with…

A. Kids dressing up as ghosts, goblins, witches, princesses, Justin Bieber… and running through the streets because of their sugar highs, in the pursuit for the house that doles out the BEST CANDY!

OR

B. Adults dressing up as naughty nurses… cavemen… the President or something that shows as much skin as possible. LMFAO – How about a naked Obama running around the street in search of some Gold Chocolate Coins? (You can thank me later for that BRILLIANT costume idea). 

Costume or real? You be the judge!

While you all may LOVE buying MONSTER-SIZED bags of candy at your local drug store (they’re for the trick-or-treaters, right? Uh dude… it’s October 9th)… What you should really be focusing on this month is that it’s NATIONAL SEAFOOD MONTH!

Fish and seafood are “candy from the sea”! Imagine handing out clams and oysters to that kid dressed up as Optimus Prime!

But seriously, fish and seafood are not just delicious, they’re packed to the gills with health promoting properties…

  • Omega 3 Fatty Acids: These essential fats keep your heart and brain healthy. Two omega-3 fatty acids found in fish are EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). Our bodies don’t produce omega-3 fatty acids so we must get them through the food we eat. AKA: EAT FISH!
  • Selenium: You may not have to be as scared of mercury as you once were when you thought about scarfing down a boatload of fish. You see, large ocean fish also tend to have higher concentrations of selenium, a trace mineral essential to human health that bonds to the mercury and prevents it from being absorbed in your brain. (To be on the safe side though, limiting consumption of king mackerel, swordfish, shark, tilefish, and some tunas may still be a good idea). 
  • Fish are also WONDERFUL sources of protein and vitamins such as D and B2 (riboflavin), calcium and phosphorus and a great source of minerals, such as iron, zinc, iodine, magnesium, and potassium

So which fish are BEST to scarf down (because they’re highest in omega-3 fats, sustainable, etc), whether it be in your sushi roll, at a seafood buffet, your kitchen or a fancy restaurant? 

Wild Alaskan King Salmon

Sardines

Sable Fish/ Black Cod

Arctic Char

Herring

Mackerel 

While those six fish deserve top honors,

Tuna and…

Anchovies…

Also deserve some time in the spot light as well…

So what will you be handing out to trick-or-treaters this year? I’m thinking ANCHOVIES!

  1. So which one is a hamachi collar?? I was thinking about handing those out. But I might be keeping those guys to myself. LOL

    • GiGi Eats Celebrities says:

      OMG Heidi looks like a Chilean Sea Bass – google that fish, it’s EFFING FRIGHTENING!!!!! Ah ha ha ha ha ha!!! Whacha gunna be for Halloween! :)

  4. AHHH Heidi’s picture cracked me up. Girl got way too much done to her face/body. Alas, cold water fish is a great source to get your Omega-3’s.

    • GiGi Eats Celebrities says:

      Seriously! There was one point, after I think the 3rd surgery where she actually looked really good… Then she just got a little KNIFE happy! I think she had Spencer do the rest for her in the kitchen – EW, I just grossed myself out! LOL!

  5. Hmmm, you do eat a lot of celebrities. I joined a fish share so we had fresh, sustainable fish all summer and autumn long.

    • GiGi Eats Celebrities says:

      Wow I am jealous of your fish share! I must join one, I am sure it would save me a lot of money too! What was your favorite fish you got from the share?

      • It didn’t necessarily save money doing it, but I knew that it supported local fisherman (well, 100 miles away) was fresh and line-caught. It probably averaged the cost int he store. There were scallops (my favorite), lobster, cod, monk fish, dog fish, sword fish, grey sole, skate fish, and others— oh and tuna steak. It really depended each week on what was in the ocean at the time. It was fun and adventurous!

  6. Do Swedish Fish count?

  7. Which celebrity would be a Goldfish cracker? Kevin Federline?

  8. This is a good reminder for the days when I consider getting my lips plumped. Yikes!
