If you’re concerned about your own health and the health of our planet, chances are you’ve started serving sustainable seafood. If not, here’s why you should.

Recent studies show that there will be virtually nothing left to harvest from the seas by the middle of this century if current trends continue. But sustainable seafood is produced in an eco-friendly way that helps to ensure that future generations will be able to enjoy delicious, healthy fish.

You’re thinking there must be a catch. That sustainable seafood must be much more expensive than farmed fish. It can be… but I’ve found a hidden treasure trove. You can buy individually wrapped, flash-frozen, high-quality, sustainable seafood – ranging from wild Alaskan salmon to flounder and mahi-mahi – at Target. And with two seven-ounce wild salmon fillets running about $7, you can serve an eco-friendly, gourmet meal for two for less than 10 bucks.

The next time you see the big red bull’s-eye, stop in and stock up. I think you’ll get hooked!

Kelley Herring is the Founder & CEO of Healing Gourmet – a multimedia company that educates on how foods promote health and protect against disease. As a young adult, Kelley battled a debilitating health condition that went misdiagnosed by multiple doctors for more than a year. Finding no help from “modern medicine”, she turned to her own knowledge of biochemistry and her passion for health research. She soon learned that her symptoms were related to nutrition and within weeks, she charted a course back to health with nothing more than simple lifestyle changes and the power of the plate. The lessons she learned spawned the creation of Healing Gourmet.
Kelley is a firm believer in vigorous exercise, moderate sun exposure and delicious, healthy, home-cooked meals. She is also the creator of Healing Gourmet’s Personalized Nutrition Software and Editor-in-Chief of the Healing Gourmet book series published by McGraw-Hill including Eat to Fight Cancer, Eat to Beat Diabetes, Eat to Lower Cholesterol and Eat to Boost Fertility.
