I don’t know about you but I hate seafood. I like shrimp and I don’t mind halibut – but don’t try feeding me salmon or just about any other type of seafood. Thats unfortunate for me healthwise, as seafood appears to be extremely good for you – if you get the kind without mercury.
Over the years I have several times attempted taking Omega-3 supplements to help replace (at least in some small way) the lack of seafood in my diet. But every time has failed – either because of cost or taste – or a combination of the two. The pills can be rather expensive and they don’t taste very good and oftentimes result in bad tasting/smelling breath.
Recently I discovered Coromega and I really love them! You can buy them in packs of 90 off of Amazon. They are packaged in something similar to condiment containers (e.g. ketchup, mustard) and each packet contains one serving. They are flavored using natural flavors and can be eaten straight or mixed with something like a yogurt. I find they taste great just by themselves – though very sweet (but not from sugar!). The packets come in a variety of flavors including orange, lime, chocolate orange, etc.
For those who are running, Omega 3 fatty acids have numerous health benefits. Research indicates they are helpful for heart health, effective blood flow, and in fighting depression. You can read more over at Wikipedia.
