Any of several polyunsaturated fatty acids found in leafy green vegetables, vegetable oils, and fish such as salmon and mackerel, capable of reducing serum cholesterol levels and having anticoagulant properties.
Here are my top 5 favorites: Incorporate these five omega-laden foods into your diet and you’ll be a happy camper!
xx ck Happy omegas!
1- SALMON: Broil it with a little ex virg oilve oil, sea salt and lemon zest! Serve with some capers, side of quinoa and sauteed broccoli raab. Marinate it with some miso + honey + soy sauce+ ginger and sesame oil, broil off in the oven and serve with brown rice and sauteed bok choy. Simple and delicious.
2- FLAX SEED: Blend into your baking! Bake with muffins, cookies. Sprinkle into pancakes, muesli, cereal or top on your yogurt, granola and dessert.
3- WALNUTS: Throw into your cereal, top on your granola, bake into your cookies, pulse in a food processor and crust a halibut with some herbs and sea salt: Walnut crusted halibut!? Mmm sounds dee-lish!
4- BEANS! – Soy, Navy or Kidney Beans: Toss them into your next arugu la-la salad! I love canned beans in my salad b/c they are simply dirt cheap and easy!
5- EX VIRG OLIVE OIL: Cook with it every day!! Just like the popular Mediterranean diet says, go for olive oil always! I believe it keeps my skin supple, my hair shiny and my attitude positive! You should go for olive oil every day my friends! It WILL keep you sexy! I drizzle it on ALL of my salads daily.
Muah!! To keep that brain, bod and face smiling and sexy, go for your OMEGAS EVERY DAY! Get with it!! xxx ck
