If you're like me, you may find the vast amount of food and nutrition information out there to be a mixed blessing. You can learn about almost anything, but there's a lot to wade through and what you find is often inconsistent.
Fish is a perfect example. We're told that we should eat lots of it because it's such a great source of important omega-3 fatty acids. Other sources tell us that we should limit our consumption because of mercury contamination, unsustainable fishing practices, and already-depleted fisheries. What's a girl to do?
In this particular case, the good folks at the Monterey Bay Aquarium do the homework for you. Their website provides a geographically targeted guide to which species are okay to eat and which should be avoided. You just click on your area on the map and out pops a printable wallet size guide to what you can safely buy. Simple, reliable and easy!
