Goal: 2 Servings/Week
Your goal is 2 fish meals/week. Fish are the best source of heart healthy omega-3’s, but not all fish are created equally: salmon, sardines, trout, and tuna have the highest omega-3 levels; snapper and halibut have lower amounts; and tilapia has very little. Wild caught fish is preferred because they generally have fewer toxins than farm raised fish.
Omega-3’s from fish and fish oil is a more efficient process for the body than vegetable sources like flax seed or flax oil. For vegetarians or those with a fish allergy, flax is a good alternative.
