Nutrition Notes: Omega-3 is a fatty acid that’s found in high amounts in fish and other seafood (especially cold-water fatty fish like salmon, mackerel, tuna, herring, and sardines). There is another essential fatty acid, omega-6, that has become increasingly present in Western diets. It’s found in high amounts in conventionally raised meats as well as safflower oil, sunflower oil, grapeseed oil, corn oil, and soybean oil (which are ingredients in most processed foods). Scientists believe that diets high in omega-6 and low in omega-3 increase systemic inflammation. Avoid this imbalance by minimizing processed foods and actively eating foods high in omega-3! Here are some tips:
- Eat cold water fish 1-2 times per week.
- Choose grassfed beef over conventionally raised beef, which is fed mostly grains (soy and corn) which causes a high omega-6 to omega-3 ratio.
- Eat pastured or omega-3 enriched eggs
- If you eat a lot of conventionally raised meats or don’t eat much seafood, consider taking a fish oil supplements; here’s one of our favorites: Coromega Omega 3.
