Tired of the whining when trying to get your kiddos, hubby, or [insert fish-hater in your life] to eat their salmon? Well fret, no more because I’ve got you covered with…
Salmon is a great source of the omega 3s, EPA and DHA. This is different from the type of omega 3, ALA, found in walnuts, chia seeds, and canola oil. ALA has to be converted to DHA to be used by the body. And while I’m a fan of chia seeds, if we ONLY rely on them for omega 3s we will fall deficient.
