The month of January is often viewed as a time for self-improvement and self-betterment after New Year’s resolutions have been made. At Heartland Catfish Company, we want to help you with your resolutions to not only improve your health but also help our customers make financially and environmentally responsible food choices. Learn more about the nutritional advantages, cost savings and lifestyle benefits that come with including more catfish in your New Year’s resolution diet.
A Forbes Health study performed in 2023 found that 33% of respondents claimed improving their diet was a top priority for their New Year’s resolution. Catfish not only provides an excellent protein source but many other health benefits associated with healthy eating as well. By containing essential nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin b-12, consuming catfish can help better heart health along with improving the functions of red blood cells. This low-fat fish also boasts significantly less calories than other fish like salmon.
In addition to the positive dietary benefits, catfish has a lower price point and is easier on your budget. In the same Forbes Health study discussed earlier, improving finances was a New Year’s resolution for about 30% of individuals. Catfish fillets are typically less expensive than their equally popular counterparts like salmon or shrimp and the cost-effectiveness of catfish makes it an appealing product for our health and budget-conscious customers.
Additionally, the convenience of having catfish fillets readily available in your freezer can incentivize and promote easier meal preparation.
