How are you getting your omega 3's
 
all the sites, blogs, primal, paleo, etc suggest we get more omega 3's then 6s and 9s..
So I was wondering how is everyone making sure they are getting all of theres?

Fish oil caps, sardines, salmon I think I'd call my primary sources.

fish oil pills, eating fish, and flax

but just as important is limiting omega 6s, primarily by NOT eating vegetable oils or anything made from them, except occasionally

In my research, I found that krill oil is considered superior to fish oil by many. I take krill oil. It has no fishy aftertaste, too.

While a superior antioxidant, krill is less superior as an omega 3 fatty acid than that of fish oil.

I take cod liver oil, fish oil and eat grass fed beef and wild salmon

I take fish oil and cod liver oil as well, at least a tbsp of each every day. I am trying to work towards the grass fed beef, lol.

I do cod liver oil pills, though they are better for vit A and D I think. Eggs from birds who are feed the right foods (ie no corn) also have omega 3 and some egg people will even advertise it. I love sushi so omega 3s are pretty easy for me :) I also eat eggs like they are going out of style.

Oh , I guess I get mine from eggs and some fish cause I don't take any capsules...:dunno:
Maybe my ratio is okay cause I ditched all the vegetable oils and only use lard, coconut oil, Palm Oil, Butter and whatever runs off the meat I cook.
