Delicious herring spread
Almost 13 years ago, I decided to adopt a healthy lifestyle to look and feel better. Changing your eating habits makes all the difference. It is healing and brings so much joy to your inner self.
Why is this delicious herring spread good for you?
I prepare this herring spread at least every two weeks, mainly because of its high content of omega-3 fatty acids. It is also an excellent source of lean protein and vitamin D. I used canned herring, but it works wonderfully with canned sardines. This herring spread is a smart addition to your diet, easy to prepare, nutritious, and filling.
As a woman, I need to take care of my hormone balance. The first way to do that is through nutrition. I ensure I eat all the nutrients my body needs to balance my hormones.
Omega-3 fatty acids are known to prevent hormone-related conditions. Our bodies need them for hormone production and function.
Omega-3 fatty acids also fight inflammation, which is often associated with hormonal imbalance. Research shows they help reduce menopausal symptoms like hot flashes.
Omega-3 fatty acids are part of my daily diet because I also need to prevent endometriosis flare-ups. Since I changed my lifestyle, I can say that I have it under control. From my experience and the studies I have come across over the years, I can say that omega-3 fatty acids reduce inflammation and endometriosis pain.
An adequate intake of omega-3 fatty acids is essential for your overall health.
The richest food source of omega-3 fatty acids is:
– Fish, especially cold-water fish such as herring, sardines, and organic salmon. Tuna and king mackerel are high in mercury. Seaweed and algae are also important sources of omega-3 fatty acids.
– Nuts and seeds include chia, walnuts, hemp, and flax seeds.
– A high-quality fish oil supplement.
