More on omegas

If you are a vegetarian and can’t get your omegas from fish, we have other options to share. Experts recommend between 300 and 600 milligrams a day for pregnant and lactating women, as a deficiency of this nutrient has been found to correlate with cognitive issues in babies. So don’t skip on it, even if you don’t eat fish. Flaxseeds as well as flaxseed oil are very high in omegas, and can be easily incorporated into both solid and liquid food recipes like oatmeal, smoothies, and muffins. Chia seeds, hemp seeds, walnuts, and seaweed are also excellent sources of omega fatty acids.
