The #1 Best Canned Salmon to Buy, Says Dietitian

Between the protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and plenty of other good-for-you nutrients packed into this fish, salmon is often the perfect addition to any meal. Adding some smoked salmon to a breakfast sandwich, topping a salad with it for an on-the-go lunch, or grilling a filet with some veggies for dinner. No matter how or when you eat it, you'll soon be reaping the benefits of your salmon-packed meal.

According to Lisa Moskovitz, RD, CEO of NY Nutrition Group, author of The Core 3 Healthy Eating Plan, and member of our medical expert board, the American Heart Association recommends eating at least a 3-ounce serving of fatty fish, such as salmon, twice a week.

But, the idea of cooking up an entire filet two times per week could be a little daunting, so going for canned salmon makes it even simpler to whip up an easy high-protein meal.

And yet, while grabbing a canned salmon seems easy, choosing which one to grab among numerous options at the grocery store can be a lot more overwhelming than you might think. With so many different types, it's tough to know which can is going to give you the most of those benefits found in a fresh piece of salmon. So which canned salmon does Moskovitz recommend?

"Not only is wild fish generally richer in beneficial, anti-inflammatory omega-3's, but it also contains fewer contaminants that when eaten in excess, may be harmful to your health," says Moskovitz.

Plus, the more omega-3's in your salmon, the better for both your overall brain and heart health—two of the most important organs in the body. Plus, canned salmon is shelf-stable, so there's no reason not to pop a few in your pantry for the next time you're looking to make a quick, healthy meal.

When Should I Take Creatine?

Creatine is probably the most well-researched supplement on the market today. Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training. Although the benefits of creatine are well-known to lifters, the best time to take it isn't common knowledge. Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw
