Delicious Way of Getting Daily Omega-3s
My doctor told me I needed to start consuming more Omega-3 fats. I asked what the easiest way of consuming them was, and he let me know it was by eating fish specifically salmon. I am not very fond of fish. It kind of makes me break out. He suggested I just take cod liver oil or fish oil pills, but they made me feel sick as well. Dennis suggested I take flax seed oil instead of fish oil pills. I tried it and it didn’t taste that bad. I am sure some of you have experience with the wonderful flavor of cod liver oil. Eww… Flax seed oil has this nice nutty flavor to it. I actually liked it!
I don’t take it in pill form. I purchased flax seed oil in a bottle. Yesterday, I had the wonderful idea of mixing my flax seed oil daily requirement with a little bit of vinegar and pepper to make a dip similar to the Italian bread dipping oils they serve at restaurants. I figured it would taste pretty good since the only difference is the type of oil used. I tried it and it tasted wonderfully. Now, I get my Omega-3s in a very delicious and quick way without having to eat fish. I know there are more people that love fish that don’t, but this quick recipe is for the ones that just don’t care for it too much.
Flax Seed Daily Omega-3 Bread Dip
• 1/2 ounce of Flax Seed Oil (Daily recommended amount from your doctor)
• 1/4 ounce Balsamic Vinegar
• Black Pepper to taste
• 1 slice of toasted Dark Rye Bread
You are going to mix the flax seed oil, balsamic vinegar and pepper in a flat plate and serve. I actually take quite a bit of Omega-3s daily, but everyone should consult their own physician before they decide on how much to take. This is just how much my doctor asked me to take daily.
