February is Heart Health Month, and what better way to celebrate than to try a new heart-healthy recipe? The American Heart Association recommends eating fish (preferably fatty fish, rich in omega-3 essential fatty acids) at least twice a week. Mahi is a tasty variety that not only supplies omega-3s but also serves as a good source of lean protein–and it’s low in saturated fat. Enjoy it with a simple citrus marinade loaded with vitamin C and antioxidants for a super healthy meal. Your heart will thank you!

Q: Winter is wreaking havoc on my skin—please help!
Licensed esthetician Catie Wiggy of MyChelle Dermaceuticals responds:

What makes them “essential” is the fact that our bodies don’t produce these nutrients and can only obtain them from food or supplements. Read more →
We’ve all been there—hunting for misplaced keys, trying to recall the name of a person we just met, walking into a room and wondering why we entered in the first place. Forgetfulness happens. It comes with being busy, stressed or tired. It also naturally picks up as we get older.
Interest in omega-3s continues to grow, and for good reason. Omega-3 – an essential fatty acid found in algae and certain fatty fish, such as salmon, sardines and cod – has been scientifically associated with impressive benefits. These include the ability to support cardiovascular health, maintain healthy cognitive function, support healthy moods and even influence joint comfort and flexibility.*
