Lipids – vegetarians, and other people that don’t eat fish, need other sources of omega 3. Studies show that moderate intake of fats may reduce cardiovascular disease, improves nutrient uptake and can even help you control your weight.

Two daily servings of foods rich in omega 3 fatty acids are recommended:
- A teaspoon (5 ml) of linseed oil,
- 3 tablespoons (15 ml) of soy oil
- ¼ cup (60 mg) of walnuts.

Recommended intake of fat: 2 servings
