INCREASE YOUR PROTEIN AND WOUND HEALING BY EATING FISH?
Is it possible to increase your protein and thus, improve wound healing?
Yes! Wound healing can be enhanced with good nutrition, especially higher levels of protein when faced with very serious wounds.
Halibut and many other “white” fish contain healthy doses of protein at near zero fat levels. Find your Omega 3’s, 6’s, and 9’s and ensure good wound healing by making sure you get enough protein. Try out this recipe below.
6 oz. halibut (or other fish such as whitefish, cod, flounder)
2 T. cilantro
1T. olive oil
1 T. lime juice
Preheat oven to 425 F. Brush fish with olive oil and and squeeze lime juice over fish. Sprinkle with cilantro and bake approximately 12 minutes or until done.Tags: Dr. Bruce Ruben, Encompass Healthcare, nutrition, protein, wound healing
