Omega-3 fatty acids are important to normal brain function and promote a healthy heart. What is interesting is that the body does not naturally produce these acids; instead they are found in certain foods. Seafood such as salmon, tuna, halibut, anchovies, sardines, trout and even crab are packed with omega-3 fatty acids, which not only help with cognitive functions, but can lower the risk for diseases as well. Not a fan of fish? Snack on beans, nuts, spinach and squash.
If you are feeling sleepy, depressed or experiencing mood swings you might be low on your omega-3s. Incorporate omega-3 fatty acids in tonight’s meal by serving up some delicious seafood.
