Omega 3

we all knew that omega 3 was a healthy fat. it is found in milk, yogurts, and even hard boiled eggs we buy from the grocery store. but did you know that other than helping our cardiovascular, circulatory, and mental health, it may also help prevent cancer? some recent reports have shown just that.
foods such as fish (salmon, tuna, and even anchovies), flax, eggs, walnuts, and black raspberries are just a few that contain omega 3.

here is an omega 3 recipe that your family will love and you can keep them healthy at the same time.

Poached Salmon with Wild Rice
2 cups cooked wild rice
8 oz chopped walnuts
1 medium lemon
1 cup of dry white wine
3 pounds salmon (more or less depending on family size)
black raspberries
2 cups of yogurt

cook rice according to package directions. in the last 2 minutes of cooking, add 6 oz walnuts and let set. in deep skillet, place salmon, 1 cup of dry white wine and enough water to barely cover the fish. slice lemon in thin rings and place on top of salmon. cook on medium heat until fillets flake.
in several glasses, prepare the parfait. take a glass and add a tablespoon of yogurt, place a few black raspberries on top and repeat process until glass is nearly full (always end with yogurt). crush remaining walnuts and sprinkle on top of the parfait. repeat in other glasses until all ingredients have been used.
