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.
