With Mardi Gras behind us, it’s time to put away the party beads and dive head first into a special season for many of our Roma customers: Lent!
Lent is the Christian observance of the liturgical year from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday. In the Roman Catholic Church, it is traditional to abstain from meat from mammals and fowl on Ash Wednesday and every Friday for the duration of Lent…which means FISH FRIDAYS at Roma!
For those of you not celebrating Lent, Roma’s offers a good opportunity for you to incorporate the health benefits of the fish-rich diet into your life. Fish is a low-fat, high quality protein in addition to being packed with vitamins and nutrients. Fish is rich in calcium and a great source of minerals, such as iron, zinc, iodine, magnesium, and potassium. Additionally, it contains omega-3 fatty acids which are essential nutrients keep our heart and brain healthy. There are so many positive health benefits to eating fish but our favorite is that it helps maintain a healthy heart by lowering blood pressure and reducing the risk of sudden death, heart attack, abnormal heart rhythms, and strokes.
