Vegetarian Tips & Tid-bits: Omega-3

Omega-3 is an essential fatty acid important for human health during all stages of life.
Most people get their Omega-3 intake from seafood, however fish is not the world's only source of Omega-3.
Omega-3 can be found in many other tasty (and extremely nutritious) foods that are suitable for those maintaining a vegetarian or vegan diet and lifestyle.

Non-seafood sources of Omega-3 include flax seeds, kiwi fruit, lingonberries, chia, perilla, camelina, acai fruit and walnuts.


  1. I'm passing this on the heartgirl, my partner who is vegetarian & her daughter LaBelle (after La Belle Sans Merci) who is vegan. Have a great weekend

  2. I didn't realise kiwi fruits were a good source of Omega-3, that's good to know as I love them!
