According to the American Dietetic Association, one in three adults has some form of cardiovascular disease. One way to reduce your chances of heart disease is to eat more Omega-3 Fatty Acids.
Here are some tips from the ADA on incorporating these into your daily meals:
  • Look for cooking oils that have omega-3 fat, such as:
    • Canola Oil
    • Soybean Oil
    • Flaxseed Oil
    • Walnut Oil
  • Eat two 4-ounce portions of fatty fish each week, such as:
    • Salmon
    • Albacore Tuna
    • Mackerel
    • Sardines
  • If you already have some heart disease, consider taking fish oil supplements.

Flax seeds and chia seeds are also great sources for Omega 3. The benefit of flax seed and the benefit of chia seeds are many. Both flax seed and chia seeds contain fiber, Omega-3 and lignans. This helps lower cholesterol and can also benefit people at risk for diabetes by regulating blood sugar by slowing down the body's absorption of sugar. Flax seed and chia seeds are also both great sources for antioxidants.
