NON-fishy Omegas

I was recently asked to post about non fish sources of omega 3s- thanks Sarah for the enthusiam. Besides who likes those aweful fish burps and house smelling like fish for days.... Here's what I found:
Alternative sources of omega 3

Believe it or not there is a large variety of whole foods that are rich in omega 3. Some foods to include in your diet to ensure you get enough omega 3 are:

*Green leafy vegetables such as, spinach, broccoli, kale, and Brussels sprouts.

*Legumes such as, pinto beans, kidney beans, black beans, and split peas.

*Walnuts

*Pumpkin seeds and flax

*Berries such as, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, and strawberries

*Avocados.


Personally i try to eat a Table spoon of flax seeds and 6 walnut halfs daily. I also Eat about 5 cups of leafy greens. Berries for sure too.
