Health Tip: Adding More Omega-3 Fatty Acids to Your Diet

(HealthDay News) — Omega-3 fatty acids are healthy polyunsaturated fats that can help to boost heart health.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics mentions these good sources of omega-3s:

  • Fatty fish, such as salmon, lake trout, sardines, mackerel and albacore tuna.
  • Walnuts, which make a great addition to salads, cereals and muffins. Use walnut oil as a cooking oil or salad dressing.
  • Canola oil, which makes a healthier substitute for butter or margarine when cooking, baking or stir-frying.
  • Look for eggs marked as good sources of omega-3s. This implies the chickens were fed fortified feed.
