I'm having salmon tonight, and I do like tofu ratatouille, and edamame, plus I take a fish oil suppliment, so I think I've got the omega 3's covered.

get a lot of Omega 3's. I take a coromega supplement with Omega 3 in it, plus I use a lot of olive oil to cook with and incorporate flax seed meal in anything I can add it to, such as yogurt, cereal, oatmeal, whole grain muffins, etc. I eat salmon about once a week or more, scallops on occasion, as they are higher in cholesterol, though not a sardine fan, but would like to try halibut.

I can not eat almonds easily, so I am more of a walnut person. I love edamame, though getting harder to find around here. I love heating them up, already shelled, in the microwave and sprinkling just a touch of kosher or sea salt on them. Tofu I am getting used to, slowly. Plus, whenever I buy a margarine or butter type product, I go for the ones with added Omega-3's. Also, I get low sodium kidney beans and add them to any soups that I make and/or salad or even help out any ground beef dish I make, like for tacos for hubs and son. And winter squash....some of my favorites...I love the butternut and acorn squash like crazy, though not a fan of the spaghetti squash, at least not yet anyhow.

Happy Wednesday to you!

Do you eat enough Omega 3 foods? Do you know what they are, and what they do for your body? Consider this:

*Omega-3 fatty acids are considered essential fatty acids. They are essential to human health but cannot be manufactured by the body. For this reason, omega-3 fatty acids must be obtained from food.

*Omega 3 acids are also known as polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs). These fatty acids play a crucial role in brain function as well as normal growth and development.

*Extensive research indicates that Omega-3 fatty acids reduce inflammation and help prevent risk factors associated with chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and arthritis.

*Symptoms of omega-3 fatty acid deficiency include extreme tiredness (fatigue), poor memory, dry skin, heart problems, mood swings or depression, and poor circulation.

YOUR CHALLENGE FOR TODAY: Make sure to eat some foods that are rich in Omega 3 acids. What are they? I am so glad that you asked!

Omega 3 Rich Foods:

*Fish and seafood such as salmon, halibut, mackerel, sardines, herring, trout, swordfish, shark, tuna and scallops
*Flax seeds
*Almonds
*Walnuts
*Kidney Beans
*Soybeans & tofu
*Winter squash
*Olive Oil

Have a LEARNING TO EAT THE GOOD STUFF Wednesday!
