Simple Lemon, Garlic, & Dill Salmon


I’m not a huge fan of fish, but I’m trying to eat more fatty fish for the healthy Omega – 3 fatty acids that they contain. A majority of Americans eat too few Omega 3’s and too many Omega 6’s. Both are very important in our diet, but an ideal ratio of Omega 3’s to Omega 6’s should be 1:1 or 1:2.  Unfortunately, for some of us the ratio may be 1:20 or worse due to the large amounts of vegetables oils through cooking, processed foods, and fast food we eat and the lack of foods high in Omega 3’s (fish, fish oil, flax seeds, walnuts…). Omega 3’s reduce inflammation in the body which is important as inflammation is at the root of many chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, obesity, cancer, Crohn’s, Celiac etc.

If I haven’t convinced you in this short paragraph the importance of Omega 3’s on your health, do some research – your life (or quality of life) may depend on it!
