That's Nutty

That's Nutty

Nuts! Fish!? Seeds?!? Omega 3s can cause some culinary confusion. If you're looking to get more of them in your diet here's a few simple ways:

  • Walnut Oil: I use this in salad dressings regularly using equal parts walnut oil to olive oil. Then I add a little white wine vinegar and some Dijon mustard. Plus, I throw some toasted walnuts onto the salad. Be sure to refrigerate your oil after you open it.

  • Flax seeds: My favorite way to sneak flax seeds into my diet is Uncle Sam Cereal. It is simply toasted whole wheat flakes and flax seeds. Taste wise the cereal would benefit with some added fresh fruit. Plus my kids love it, which I love since the cereal hardly has any sugar in it!
  • Canola Oil: Canola oil is great to cook with and is the best oil when making a stir fry. It tastes much lighter than olive oil which makes it suitable for baking as well.

The best kind of oil to use is definitely virgin olive oil. Good for the heart! ____________________________________ Don't tick me off. Or you'll get it.

Happy to know that you are interested in this walnut oil - it's my favorite. If you want to buy some of that walnut order here's the website for shopping at la Tourangelle. Also, regarding the RDA for omega 3's, there is no official RDA but the National institute of Health recommends about 4 grams a day for adults. So go on and get nutty.

That dressing sounds good! 3Sweeties, I've googled a little and to my understandning you should have between 1-4 grams a day? :? I could be wrong, but I'm sure FitSugar will know.
