If there was a way to get the freshest seafood in the world delivered right to your door over a block of dry ice, do you think I’d keep it from you? While fish is reputed to have necessary nutrients like omega-3s and vitamin D, not all of it is served free of hazardous contaminants such as heavy metals (mercury). This is why I love Vital-Choice!
Vital-Choice is an online home-delivery service that delivers only wild seafood and organic fare. Shipped from sustainably harvested and well-managed fisheries, Vital-Choice delivers the freshest salmon straight from Alaska. What differentiates Vital-Choice from other places is their method of finding the highest quality salmon. Rather than letting the salmon sit for hours after catching it, they initiate a “flash-freezing” method right after harvesting it, which preserves the flavor, nutritional quality, and texture. The freshest salmon, after all, is salmon that is frozen until it is ready to be cooked.
Additionally, Vital-Choice offers only pure, wild seafood, meaning their fish grow in an adaptable environment free of pesticides, antibiotics, and genetically modified organisms. Also, their mercury levels are far less than those in more commercial species like tuna and halibut.
Having ordered from Vital-Choice for many years, I have to say their seafood offers the most nutritional benefit. Often times I’ll order the spicy sardines, a great source of ribonucleic acid (RNA), which helps maintain healthy cell division and function in the body. Another favorite of mine is the sable fish (black cod), which contains higher amounts of omega-3 oils than salmon! Lastly, I’ll order a sweeter health snack for the week, like their frozen organic berries (free of mold) —great to blend up for protein shakes!
