Omega-3 fatty acids are believed to lower your risk of heart disease by decreasing inflammation, triglyceride levels, blood pressure, and reducing blood clotting.  As if this weren’t enough, including omega-3 fatty acids in the diet can boost immune function.  Salmon and walnuts are excellent sources of omega-3s, so although these recipes may seem high in fat, they are high in the good fats.
