Being one of the most anti-inflammatory nutrients on the planet, omega 3s are MEGA good for us. These fatty-acids, found most abundantly in fish, are known to put up a strong fight against heart disease, cognitive disorders, joint inflammation, cancer, heart disease, and, most surprisingly, mental health conditions like depression, ADHD, and even schizophrenia, to name a few.
So if you’re still feeling the winter blues, or anxiety seems to be your BFF this month, join in on our meditations and try to get a couple of servings of fatty fish in your diet each week.
But fish lovers beware! Since tuna tends to have higher levels of mercury in it, it’s important to limit your tuna fish intake to one can every couple of weeks and get your omega 3s from other SMASHing fatty fish (Salmon, Mackerel, Anchovies, Sardines, Herring).
1. Combine tuna, capers, scallions, and 1 tbsp of lemon juice. Season with salt, pepper, and (optionally) more lemon juice, to taste.
2. Serve with a small hand full of sturdy crackers or spooned into endive leaves, bell pepper boats, or celery sticks.
