Omega-3 rich fruits and veggies
For vegetarians, there are plenty of options for Omega-3 rich foods. Seeds are your friends – namely flaxseeds and chia seeds. One tablespoon of flaxseeds offer 1.8 grams of plant-based Omega-3s, so it’s great to sprinkle this stuff onto smoothies, bowls of cereal, and yogurt parfaits. One ounce of chia seeds offers five grams of Omega-3s and typically goes well on many of the same foods as flaxseeds do. Navy beans and soybeans are also excellent sources of the stuff, and they’re high in protein, making them staples of a vegetarian diet. Nuts show up again as a food good for the hair here, as they’re also high in Omega-3s.
