Omega-3, It’s What’s for Dinner

Jesse Kornbluth on the Huffington Post sings the praises of Omega-3.

He writes: “I started paying attention to these fatty acids when I read Nina Planck’s Real Food: What to Eat and Why, and was dazzled by the range of benefits they provide: heart health, brain growth, mental balance.”

And continues:

“So…what’s the best way to get your Omega-3?

Ideally, from natural food — it’s not hard to consume the equivalent of two grams of fish oil a day without taking a pill. Try “fatty” fish: salmon, herring, mackerel, sturgeon, and anchovies. Or a tablespoon of canola oil in salad dressing. Or walnuts — a handful of walnuts has as much omega-3 as 3.5 ounces of salmon. Or broccoli, cantaloupe, kidney beans, spinach, grape leaves, Chinese cabbage or cauliflower. Highly recommended: flaxseed oil, or better, ground flaxseed, or protein from grass-fed animals.” [emphasis supplied]
