Eating healthy day 17: Canned sardines for that Omega-3

Omega-3 is such a buzz word these days, it’s easy to glaze over the details. An important fact to note is Omega-3 is a type of polyunsaturated fat, of which 3 are found in our food. ALA is the first kind, found in leafy plants and plant seeds, think flaxseed, chia, or avocado, (not coconut oil because that’s actually considered a saturated fat) and so forth. Our bodies actually convert these into longer chained EPA and DHA at a pretty inefficient rate. So, it’s more efficient to directly consume EPA and DHA in oily fish like salmon, sardines (bigger bang for the buck), or algae and krill oil. Glossy hair is very attractive, why? Because it’s a sign of health and we’re attracted to our counterparts who look healthy. Omega-3s can help you get that glossy hair from the inside!
