We all know Omega 3 is found in fish, but how to get Omega 3 in your diet without eating fish for breakfast, lunch and dinner, seems a little more elusive.
Sure you could have a probiotic drink with added Omega 3, or even bread with Omega 3 in, but if you’re not so keen on things being “added” to your food, then the Omega 3 Cookbook is a more organic approach to getting more omega 3 in your diet.
Omega 3 is More Than Fish
Yes, it’s true, there are loads of other foods with Omega 3 in other than fish such as broccoli, walnuts and strawberries. In truth half of the recipes (and this is before you get to the desserts, smoothies and juices) are fish free, and most of these are vegetarian friendly as well.
The recipes in the Omega 3 Cookbook give you a diverse range of foods with naturally occurring sources of Omega 3, so you’ll be able to reap the benefits of good levels Omega 3 being in your diet, while having plenty of foods to choose from.
Omega 3 and Cholesterol
Omega 3 is found in good monounsaturated fats such as olive oil, but not in saturated fats such as those from meat and diary products, which can lead to high cholesterol. In fact Omega 3 is only found in good fats, so by default eating a diet rich in Omega 3, is likely to lower cholesterol and is another option for people trying to reduce their cholesterol levels.
