Earlier this week we talked about what can happen in your body if you don’t eat enough foods that contain omega-3 fatty acids. Now let’s look at what you can eat to make sure you keep your levels where they should be and avoid deficiency:
• Fatty Fish
Think salmon, tuna, sardines, herring, trout, and mackerel.
Go with oysters, clams, and mussels.
• Nuts and Seeds
Great sources are walnuts, chia seeds, hemp seeds, and flax seeds.
• Plant Oils
Try flaxseed oil, avocado oil, soybean oil, or canola oil.
• Fortified Foods
Things like yogurt, milk, and yogurt can be fortified with added omegas.
