Omega 3 Sources

August 17, 2007

Omega-3s are easy to come by in our house. They are found in grassfed beef and walnuts – two staples of the Morris Household diet. We buy our certified organic walnuts from Paul Hain and Sons of Tres Pinos. They are wonderful sprinkled on baby greens, with some crumbled Gorgonzola, dried cranberries and a Balsamic Vinegarette dresing.

But I’m always looking for other sources of this essential nutrient that fights heart disease and lowers cholesterol. Wild salmon is another great source. We grilled some Coho Wild Salmon steaks this week, served them with some lemon, organic butter from Clover Dairy in Sonoma County, and – of course -a salad of baby greens (another staple in our house.) Jack and Sarah are learning to like fish, particualry Jack who has taken an interest in fishing and preparing his own food. (Michael Pollan’s got nothin’ on us!) 

One of the beauties of starting this blog has been my own awareness of what we are eating and how we are preparing it. I find myself looking for local foods I can write about. Joe is a cook. More often than I, he will open a cookbook from our bookshelves in the kitchen and start whipping up a recipe.  One of the best things about cooking is the time it enables us to spend together in our kitchen.  Surrounded by beautiful views of California hills, some good music, and a glass of California wine, I cannot think of a better way to wind down at the end of a day.
