According to Lawrence Litzow, AKA the Wiz of Auz, our need for Omega 3 oil is not satisfied by our normal diet. Most "good" oils contain some Omega 3, but more likely a predominance of Omega 6. We should supplement out diet with Omega 3, of which we need about half our Omega 6 requirement.
Best sources of Omega 3 are fish oil and flax seed oil (must be cold pressedas heat changes the molucular structure of the oil)...the following recipe is designed to help provide some Omega 3
Flax Oil Cream
Put ground seeds in a bowl, cover with half the blueberries and the orange juice. Mix together - flax oil cream, vanilla, honey and the rest of the blueberries in the blender and pour over the above.
- 2 tablespoons with ground flax seed, sunflower and pumpkin seeds combined
- 1/2 cup of freshly squeezes orange juice
- 4 tablespoons of blueberries
- 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
- 1 teaspoon of honey
- flax oil cream mixture (see below)
"This, " says the Wiz, "is good for breakfast, but I guess the typical New Yorker would not have time to prepare it!"
- 2 tablespoons of flax oil
- 4 tablespoons of "Quark" or cottage cheese, yoghurt or kefir (or soft tofu for those allergic to dairy products
