Fish-Burp-Free Fish Oils!

Have you attempted to boost your Omega 3 intake by taking fish oil pills, only to find a fishy taste repeating on you throughout the day? That's what happened to me, but recently I went to my eye doctor with symptoms of dry eye and she suggested taking an Omega 3 supplement (which has been found to ease symptoms), so I thought I'd give it another shot. I had read about the brand Nordic Naturals, noted for their purity and lack of aftertaste, but was still hesitant after purchasing (the pricey) bottle of pills from Whole Foods. Well, it's been a week and so far, so good! No fish burps to speak of!

All of that said, getting these essential fatty acids by adding certain foods to your daily diet is the easiest and most effective way to increase your Omega 3 intake. Items to add to your shopping cart include: flaxseeds, walnuts, beans (soy, navy or kidney), fish, olive oil, vegetables and commonly fortified foods such as eggs and some breads. The Mediterranean diet is especially effective in increasing the intake of good fats. Start today with these salmon and walnut recipes:
Seared Wild Salmon with Mango Salsa
Salmon with Cilantro Pesto
Walnut Hummus
Curried Walnut Chicken
