fish like salmon, tuna and mackerel to your diet twice a week can save your life, it’s the heart healthy thing to do. But what if you don’t like fish? Those fatty fish are also very strong in flavor.
Well, don’t write off Omega-3s so easily. There are many plant sources of this good fat—particularly flaxseed. You can purchase flaxseed as whole seeds, ground seeds or oil. Ground flaxseed is the best choice because it contains 3 grams of fiber per tablespoon and it can be mixed into cereals, pancakes, waffles and breads.
Other good sources of omega-3s are cantaloupe, avacado, kidney beans, spinach, grape leaves, cauliflower and nuts. In fact a handful of walnuts provide the same amount of omega-3 as a 3.5 ounce piece of salmon.
