Seafood is an ideal protein because it’s low in artery-clogging saturated fat. Plus, fatty fish rich in omega-3 fats can help lower triglyceride levels. There are so many kinds to choose from that there’s something to please everyone’s palate. Cod is a tender and mild fish and contains about 135 mg of omega-3s per 3-ounce serving. Cod also contains selenium, a mineral with antioxidant powers involved in enzyme function.
