Salmon, Avocado and Lamb’s Lettuce Salad for Omega 3’s

This is one of my favourite meals because it’s so quick and not at all heavy. A good one if you’re pressed for time but don’t feel like pasta.

It’s also high in our good friends Omega 3’s. What are Omega 3 Fatty Acids?

They’re considered “essential” fats – Essential fats are so defined as they are vital for, but cannot be made by, the human body. They are needed for the integrity of every cell membrane in the body so particulalry important for the health of vital organs such as the heart and brain.

Where can you find Omega 3’s? Omega 3′s are found in foods including walnuts, some fruits and vegetables, and coldwater fish such as herring, mackerel, sturgeon, and anchovies.  Fish contain omega 3′s because they eat microalgae that contains omega 3′s. Other vegan sources of omega-3s include canola oil, broccoli, cantaloupe, kidney beans, spinach, grape leaves, Chinese cabbage, cauliflower, spirulina, and walnuts. And obviously salmon and avocado!

Or else, you could also use a product like Udo’s Choice Ultimate Oil Blend and put it in smoothies, drizzle over salads or vegetables. It’s a very wonderful product. I use the ultimate oil blend, it really is wonderful.

For my salad dressing I used grated ginger, chia seeds, olive oil, a dash of baslamic and of course the Udo’s oil.

Happy Friday folks
