Diet Blog passes along some tips to help you get your Omega-3 fatty acids. Here are a few good ones:
- Grind up flaxseeds and sprinkle them on salads or add them to oatmeal, protein shakes or morning cereals. Alternately, supplement with flaxseed oil; 1 tbsp is equivalent to 3 tbsp flaxseeds (use as a supplement; Not for cooking)
- Snack on walnuts, which contain modest amounts of omega 3 fats (other types of nuts and seeds can also contain significant amounts of omega 3 fats)
- Increase your consumption of leafy greens which contain small amounts of omega 3 fats.
