If you’re looking for quick and easy ways to add omega-3s into your diet, then look no further than my Super Simple Baked Salmon with Dill recipe!
Salmon and other cold-water fatty fish are loaded with vital omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s are important for boosting your immune system; improving mood and preventing depression; helping to lower blood pressure, cholesterol and plaque build-up in the arteries which can help prevent against heart attack and/or stroke; reducing your risk for cancer; helping with concentration and learning; improving the quality and health of your skin; helping prevent diabetes by stabilizing blood sugar levels; reducing muscle, bone and joint pain.
As you can see, getting plenty of these fatty acids in your diet, or through supplementation, is vitally important. Eating a serving (4 – 6 oz.) of cold-water fish like salmon three times a week will provide your body with the omega-3s it needs.
