The refrigerator light goes on...

You'll love this one (I did). It's the perfect Spring recipe. Bright, slightly spicy and fantastic with the halibut, this is one terrific salsa! Best of all, it takes all of about 15 minutes to put together. That's faster than you can drive to the pizza place for dinner.

Eating Fish and Heart Disease in Women

There have been numerous studies that show a reduction of risk in fatal heart attacks when men eat fish.  In a study in the Journal of American Medical Association, researchers reported similar protection for women, showing that eating fish about once a week reduces the risk for fatal heart attack by at least 1/3.  Eating fish more often reduces the risk even further, with having fish 2 – 4 times per week cutting the risk by over 40%.  

These results were independent of the study’s participants use of other foods that might also prevent heart disease, such as fiber, differences in intake of red meat, fruits and vegetables or lower saturated fat diets.
