  1. Flaxseed products: One tablespoon of whole flaxseeds has 2.3 grams, one tablespoon of ground flaxmeal has 1.6 grams, and one tablespoon of organic flaxseed oil has a whopping eight grams of omega-3s.
  2. One tablespoon of chia seeds sprinkled on your cereal or salad provides 2.5 grams of this healthy fat.
  3. Hemp products: Two tablespoons of creamy hemp seed butter offers 2.5 grams of omega-3s, and one cup of creamy Hempmilk contains 0.9 grams.
  4. Cooking oils: One tablespoon of canola oil offers 0.8 grams of omega-3s, while the same amount of olive oil may not have much, 0.1 grams, but if you cook with it often, the omega-3s will add up.
