How to Supply Correctly
Since your body doesn’t produce Omega 3, you need to add it to your diet in order to have a great health.
One way to get Omega 3 is to make sure you add fish and seafood to your diet.
But to be completely safe from mercury poisoning, you can supplement with Fish oil or…
Add plant-based foods rich in Omega 3.

Flax seed: The Overlooked Superfood
It’s one of the richest sources of plant-based Omega 3 fatty acids.

What’s amazing about flax seeds is that baking has no effect on Omega 3 fatty acids.
So you can enjoy their benefits without worrying that cooking and baking will destroy its properties.
Here are some ways I include flax seeds in my diet:
- I add 3 tablespoons of ground flaxseed to my morning smoothie. Depending on what I want, I mix it with plenty of water or almond/coconut milk.
- I mix in a small bowl, 3 tablespoons of ground flaxseed, 1 tablespoon of yogurt and a bit of raw honey.
- Sometimes I even bake ground flaxseeds into muffins, cookies, and even to breads.
