When it’s cold outside there’s nothing that the staff at Collins Seafoods love more than a generous portion of Fish & Chips and it seems we’re not the only ones yearning for those warm, winter comforts!
Throughout this frosty season, your body inevitably experiences different changes in energy levels, metabolism and even food preferences. Studies confirm that in colder months, we actually eat more food and are much more likely to opt for rich, hearty comfort food over a healthier, lighter option. This seems like a no brainer but here’s the reason why we’re reaching for that hot cup of tea and a warm portion of delicious Fish & Chips!
When temperatures outside start to drop, your body temperature follows suit. In turn this makes us crave hot food that’s likely to warm you up. Seems sensible right?
The sugars and starches in carbohydrates, found in these types of comforting dishes, give your body that instant heat that it’s looking for. However, when you eat these foods, your blood sugar levels peak and fall, creating a never-ending cycle that’s destined to keep us hungry!
We know nobody wants to eat a salad when it’s freezing outside so luckily, Collins Seafoods has the perfect solution. Our Frozen at Sea range is not only practical, but our fish is unbelievably tasty too. There’s everything you need to create a wholesome dish that will leave you nothing but satisfied.
Don’t forget about the health benefits as well! By making smart food choices, such as eating our Frozen at Sea Cod and Haddock, you’re adding more protein to your diet and curbing carbohydrate binging. You can also have a much lower chance of heart disease and heart attacks than those who choose not to eat fish.
Fish is as good for the mind as it is for your body, so while you enjoy eating our fish, you can keep your diet in check and you’re less likely to suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). This is a form of depression that people experience at this time of year and can cause a wide variety of things from feelings of depression, fatigue and sleep deprivation.
Collins Seafoods maintains only the highest quality fish combined with certified sustainable species are caught and used in our Frozen at Sea range. Cod and Haddock are largely cold water fish so are really in their prime in the winter months. Our fish is always frozen within five hours of being caught – in order to maintain freshness – making sure it’s especially mouth-watering by the time it reaches you.
So, the next time someone suggests going to the local chippy for that evening’s supper, you don’t need to feel too guilty about indulging on this sensational, seasonal dish!
