20 Omega-3–packed recipes

Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for good health. Unfortunately, our bodies don't make them, so we must consume them through food or supplements. Fatty fish, walnuts and certain oils are all excellent (and delicious) sources of brain-enriching, heart-healthy and anti-inflammatory omega-3s.

Salmon and other fatty fish

Cold-water, oily fish — including salmon, mackerel, herring and sardines — are all rich in omega-3s. Try to incorporate them into your meal plan at least twice a week.
