Omega-3-rich mackerel is known to enhance brain functioning and boost muscle mass. "There's also evidence that the fish helps to reduce cholesterol, lower blood pressure and regulate metabolism," Aikens says.

RW serving suggestion: Grilled mackerel

Mix 50ml olive oil with the juice and grated zest of half a lemon, one crushed garlic clove and half a tsp of thyme leaves. Brush over four fresh mackerel fillets and grill for six minutes. Flake into salad. Serves four.
