Looking to Stay Healthy and in Shape this Summer? Just Add Fish!

With summer just around the corner, nearly everyone is trying to get into shape. People

are more self-conscious about their bodies as the layers of clothing start to come off at the pool, beach, or lake, but exercising to lose those few extra winter lbs isn’t always enough. Along with exercise, diet plays an important part in how a person looks and feels.

Eating right in the summer can be easier for everyone because there are fresh fruits and vegetables in the grocery store, at the farmer’s markets, and even in backyard gardens. Another way to stay healthy is to incorporate fish and seafood into the diet. Just add a side of veggies and instantly you’ve got a healthy, tasty meal.

Besides fish being tasty, low-calorie and easy-to-cook , seafood supports good health and happiness. Many types of fish contain high amounts of Omega-3s, which are essential nutrients that our bodies need. Unfortunately, our bodies can’t produce this type of nutrients on their own. To get them, we have to get them from the foods we eat, and there’s no better source than fish. Omega-3s help with maintaining a healthy cardiovascular system, help with neurological development, reduce depression, and more.


The path of seafood from sea (or) farm to our plate is becoming more traceable. In order to keep fish at its freshest, from point of landing and packaging to offerings in stores and

markets, flake ice is used to maintain just the right temperature. Flake ice also helps all types of seafood retain optimal levels of color and moisture. Howe Corporation has been in business since 1912, and manufactures flake ice machines that can produce anywhere from 1,000 to 40,000 pounds of flake ice a day. Our machines allow grocery stores, fish markets, restaurants, and more to keep fish and seafood at just the right temperature and displayed on the flake ice so consumers can see that what they’re buying is fresh.

When you’re looking for an alternative to getting in shape this summer, there’s no better way than to incorporate fish and seafood into your diet. Add that side of veggies and your body will start to get healthier one bite at a time. Fresh fish on the grill this summer is great for parties or an outdoor family meal. With Howe Corporation’s flake ice machines, fish stays fresh longer, keeping everyone happy and healthy.
