My 5 Favorite Natural Food Sources of Omega-3

wp-image--299764600I mentioned in a previous post the top ways to reduce cholesterol naturally.  One of those ways was to consume a fish oil supplement containing Omega-3 oils.  I personally take Advocare’s OmegaPlex, which you can order here.  Life Extensions also makes a good supplement that contains a good balance of EPA and DHA.  A majority of omega-3 sources are fish based and many of the best forms are in supplements because the oils can be extracted and taken in a concentrated form.  I suggest doing some research on the ALA/EPA/DHA quantities though since all omega-3 supplements are not created equal.

However since I always prefer and believe it’s best to get what I need straight from the source, the following are great FOOD sources of omega-3 oils:

  • Mackerel
  • Salmon
  • Chia Seeds
  • Walnuts
  • Tuna

In addition to regulating cholesterol, omega-3 has been linked to improvements in the following conditions:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • ADHD
  • Cancer
  • Skin health
  • Diabetes
  • Inflammation
  • Arthritis
  • Infertility
  • Alzheimer’s disease

It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like…

It’s the season of savings and free goodies!  We’re no different here.

I was seeing Halloween decorations up in September. I was seeing Christmas decorations in the store in August. Which means…it’s almost time to stuff your face for 3 months straight! Before I do that I will definitely be doing another round of Advocare’s 24 day Challenge. Just to feel like I’m starting fresh and maybe help to deter me from a little bit of the bad eating that wouldn’t have said “no” to otherwise. If you have an interest in seeing what it’s all about, message me and I will absolutely get you a discount and a free gift!


This Week’s Random Thoughts

Since I’ve been completely in a funk the last week and not motivated to really do anything, here’s just a crumb of what’s been going on in my head.

  1. CSI Miami is being taken off of Netflix, and for some strange reason I feel like I have to binge watch before it’s gone.  Everything in my head is now being said in that David Caruso voice with the dramatic pause, that’s in EVERY SINGLE LINE HE HAS.  I don’t know who wrote his lines, but some of them make me want to stab my eyes with chopsticks.
  2.  My dog is sad and moping around now that we’re not home every day like we were during Harvey, which makes no sense since it’s not any different from before the storm.  And by the way, since when does a dog poop TWICE in one walk?!?!
  3. Years ago when I was trying to explain the dog’s micro-chip, I told my daughter that she had a GPS tracking chip in her so that I would know where she was if somebody kidnapped her.  She believed  me until a couple of years ago when she found the GPS app that I had hidden on her phone and figured out that the app is how I always knew where she was when she wasn’t with me.
  4. T1288These Iced Lemon Cake and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough meal replacement shakes from Advocare are like crack.  It’s takes all the willpower in the world for me not to have one WITH EVERY MEAL.  It’s like dessert.  Seriously.  Typically I use meal replacement shakes when I’m in a bind and don’t have time to pack a lunch/breakfast or haven’t gone to the grocery store.  I started finding reasons to have these instead!  I think I have my addiction under control.  But I’m still not giving these things up completely!  They’re so easy and convenient, and I can throw my superfoods greens powder in them and not really notice the taste.  If you want a discount so you can try, message me and we can work something out.  You won’t be sorry.
  5. I’m pretty much ready to retire and just be done working.  Only 17 more years to go!
