Are you familiar with the health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids? Some science-based benefits of omega-3’s: they help to improve eye health, lower risks of heart disease, fight inflammation, support bone health, promote healthy skin and hair, and protect against age-related mental decline.
Sounds great, but what are some easy ways to get omega-3s into your diet? Through the seas and through the trees.
For example, if you like fish, begin broiling some of your more oily selections for dinner. Excellent sources of omega-3s can be found in herring, mackerel, salmon, trout and tuna, to name a few. If you’re concerned about the mercury levels in fish, safer choices include wild trout and wild salmon. Impressive plant-based sources of omega-3s include nuts and seeds like flax seeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds and walnuts. While nuts are a great source of protein and healthy fats, they are high in calories, so enjoy them in moderation. Vegetables from the cabbage family like Brussels sprouts and cauliflower can supply you with omega-3s as well.
You have many options for adding omega-3-rich foods to your diet. And you’ve been looking for another great opportunity to show off your culinary skills, right? Pulling ideas from the above list, you can stir up a meal with salmon, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower and a few chopped walnuts. Call me when dinner is ready!
