If you are in search of diabetes-friendly dishes to make your diet more diverse, make sure to include cod on your lunch or dinner menu. This fish is very common, relatively inexpensive, and can be easily found in your local supermarket, yet it is very healthy and has several dietary benefits for people with diabetes.

One of the main benefits of cod is high protein content – 20 grams of protein in 100 grams of cooked fish. At the same time, cod is very low in calories and fat. Same 100 grams of cooked fish contain just 84 calories and 0.25 gram of fat, most of which is Omega-3 fatty acids that protect from heart disease.

Cod is also a great source of vitamins and minerals. The treasure trove includes Vitamins B6 and B12, as well as Vitamins A, C, E, selenium, phosphorus, and potassium.

Cod is actually healthier than many other types of fish as it has very low mercury content, similarly to herring and sardines. High mercury content is a common problem that is more often present in larger fish. Mercury is toxic in high quantities and can cause serious health issues. When it comes to cod, mercury content in it is so low, the fish is even allowed for pregnant women.

When it comes to cooking, cod is a very versatile fish! – It is great baked, grilled, steamed, boiled, and fried. That is why there are so many delicious cod recipes you can find online. We also have a few of our favorite cod recipes. Here they are for your enjoyment.
