Optimise your brunch
It’s the weekend. High chance you’re brunching. Why not make it brain-friendly?
You can still have your Sunday roast and achieve this, so don’t fear. Optimising your brunch for your brain can be done in restaurants or by using what’s in your fridge, if you know what you’re looking for.
Which is [drumroll]:
[still going… really feeling this new snare drum]
And those are?
Omega 3 fatty acids are one of the things the body can’t make on its own, so we get them from the food we eat.
The easiest way to get Omega 3s via food is fish. And if fish isn’t your thing, here are the next best sources:
Flax and chia seeds
Soybeans and soybean oil
Meats and dairy from grass-fed animals
It's important to note that your body doesn't absorb plant-based sources of Omega 3s as easily as fish, so double up on those options to maximize your intake.
This isn’t an exhaustive list, but the whole point of this newsletter is to summarise things for you, so...
You’re welcome and end of list.
Wait, what kind of fish?
Choose fatty sources of fish for high Omega 3 content. Good options: mackerel, salmon, sea bass, sardines.
What's so great about Omega 3s?
The cell membrane of brain cells is made up partly of Omega 3s.
They work to preserve membrane health and make sure brain cells communicate to each other. Studies have shown that a lack of dietary Omega 3s can lead to deficits in learning and memory.
The love is strong
We love and believe in Omega 3s so much that we've sourced the world's most bio-available plant-based Omega 3 algae oil for our upcoming product launch. More to come!
Fish. Walnuts. Eggs. And if you feel like getting creative in the kitchen: Walnut crusted salmon, anyone?
And if you're looking for a high-qual, non-fish source of Omega 3s: check these out. Ethically sourced and clean, just how I like my algae.
