Week 2: Healthy Eating Contest: Mood Food.

Week 2: MOOD FOOD: Include one omega-3-rich food in your diet every day this week, June 8-14, 2020.

 

Omega-3 fatty acids are important for the structure and function of the nervous system. Deficiencies in omega-3s are connected to cognitive and mood disorders. Include omega-3-rich foods such as mackerel, salmon, herring, oysters, anchovies, flaxseeds, chia seeds and walnuts in your diet every day to give your brain a boost.

I always keep a variety of nuts and seeds in the pantry. I buy the ground flax seeds to easily mix them in my foods. I add flaxseed meal to my almond milk, smoothie or plain yogurt. I like to eat my walnuts in salads, with vegetables, and with some cottage cheese in the morning. I usually pair it with sunflowers seeds as well. Chia seeds are also very versatile and can be sprinkled in almost anything. They can also be used in baked goods like whole grain muffins, or used to thicken a dairy free hot chocolate. I even tried a recipe that used chia seeds to make a pudding base by leaving them overnight in the fridge in some almond milk.

Adding chia seeds to yogurt and substituting almonds with walnuts provided a good amount of omega 3 fatty acids to my diet not only for this week.
