Essential Fatty Acids

The Art of Health

Essential fatty acids are a vital component for our body, and these need to be sourced from our food. They are of two types: Omega 6 and Omega 3. 🌴

Most traditional Indian diets provide sufficient Omega 6, but might lack in Omega 3. Fatty fish is the most well-known source while flaxseeds, chia seeds, and walnuts are good sources for vegetarians.

Also, there is a huge range of Omega-3 supplements, but supplements shouldn’t be considered as an alternative to real food.🌴

This is my daily dose of omega-3, I add a tablespoon to my curd daily: protein, fiber, healthy fat, and probiotic all together make it a super healthy snack!🌴

About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit). I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.

  1. We started adding flax and chia seeds and a bit of crushed walnuts to our bowl of yoghurt and to our salads too. They are nice additions to both.
