Omega-3s Good for Your Health and Your Mood

New research from the University of Pittsburgh has found that omega-3 fatty acids are not only good for your physical health, but also good for your mental health. More specifically, they found that people with lower blood levels of omega-3s were more apt to have a negative outlook and to be more impulsive, while those with higher levels of the fatty acid typically were more agreeable and less likely to be in a bad mood.

So next time you head out for a nice dinner to lighten your mood, order the salmon (instead of vodka on the rocks) to boost your spirits up even more.

Everytime I read about omega-3s I think the same thing: I wish I liked fish even just a tiny bit! But alas, I don't. Hey Fit, what other non-fish foods have decent levels of omega-3s?
