Omega 3 SALAD

Recently i have been prescribing my patients diets higher in omega 3's. This important nutrient helps decrease inflammation in the body, contribute to joint pain relief / mental health disorders / hair and skin health. Omega 3s are good fats that everyone should LOVE. This essential fatty acid is a healthy fat that contributes to weight loss and body maintenance. This is a quick and easy throw together salad to make consuming omega 3s tasty.
