Adding more Omega 3 fatty acids in your diet can help minimize or eliminate the negative effects of the change of seasons and Seasonal Affective Disorder. According to Self magazine’s nutrition data, complied by Dr. Axe, below are the top sources of Omega 3s:
• Mackerel, salmon, herring, and tuna. Fish oil is a great source, too, and it’s easy to add to morning smoothies.
• Chia seeds, flaxseeds, and hemp seeds
• Eggs (specifically, egg yolks!)
2 6 oz. salmon fillets (boneless, skinless)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp fresh parsley chopped
6 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
In a medium glass bowl, prepare marinade by mixing garlic, olive oil, basil, salt, pepper, lemon juice and parsley. Place salmon fillets in a medium glass baking dish, and cover with the marinade. Marinate in the refrigerator about 1 hour, turning occasionally. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place fillets in aluminum foil, cover with marinade and seal. Place sealed salmon in the glass dish, and bake 35 to 45 minutes until easily flaked with a fork.
