Omega-3 Foods: Mouthwatering Recipes For Complete Eating

There’s nothing like a fresh green salad topped with a pan-seared salmon filet. As delicious as this meal is, it’s actually loaded with omega-3, the most beneficial nutrient known to man.

Without laundry-listing the proven benefits of omega-3, I want to share some foods with omega fats that you’ll actually enjoy eating.

Omega-3 Recipe Starters

Let’s start with some walnuts, perhaps candied walnuts, on a bed of fresh greens. Throw in some roasted squash, navy beans, and a big hunk of tuna. You’ve got yourself another tasty salad with all the ingredients of omega-3 success. Your choice of dressing–most creamy dressings are high in vitamin E. That’s an added bonus.

So, we know about nuts an beans, let’s move on to different kinds of fish. Have you ever tried arctic char? This fish tastes like salmon, but actually has more omega-3. You’re not going to find a better omega-3 food. The cold arctic waters have packed this fish with beneficial oils, so grill it up. Have some spinach or another leafy green on the side, maybe some kale seared with extra virgin olive oil. Top that with a few grilled scallops, and you’re good to go.

Do you like shrimp? Who doesn’t like shrimp. Grill five shrimp–don’t grill away the fat, and don’t forget the olive oil. Throw these on some pasta, if you can handle the carbs. Saute together with some cooked soybeans, your choice of veggies and seasonings, and you have another wonderful omega-3 meal.

Don’t Worry: When You Can’t Find Omega-3 Foods

It’s tough in the US to have an endless supply of fatty fish and quality greens. It takes a lot of greens and nuts to make up for one serving of fish. Also, if you happen to be traveling, you’re likely aware of the harmful toxins lacing fatty fish. Remember to be careful.

Your alertness is your most healthy asset. It’s been easy to stay on top of things like mercury in the past. Today, chemicals worse than mercury are found in fish and other omega-3 rich foods. The safest way to get your fatty acids is in a distilled supplement. I had trouble finding a good supplement myself, and there’s no reason for you to go through the same research hassle.

When you can’t cook your omega-3, don’t let your nervous system starve.

We both know the pitfalls of sacrificing health for pleasure, but don’t worry too much either. After all, what’s the worst that could happen?
