Oh My, Omega-3!
- Omega-3 is an essential fatty acid found in fish and certain plant oils. Our bodies can't produce it naturally so it's important that we include it in our diets.
- Research shows that polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fatty acids (a.k.a. the healthy fats) tend to lower your risk of heart disease. Omega 3 is a polyunsaturated fat.
- There are delicious plant-based sources of omega-3s, such as flax, walnuts, hempseeds, canola and fortified foods, but fatty fish is the best source. In fact, we should eat fish at least two to three times per week.
- Get more omega-3 into your diet by sprinkling a little ground flax on your cereal in the morning or by adding a small handful of walnuts to your lunch.
