Happy Fatty Omega-3

Ready to get your happy on? You can with Omega-3! Not only praised for its health benefits, Omega-3 could improve your mood. One study from the University of Pittsburgh found that people with higher levels of Omega-3 fatty acids were less likely to experience moderate or mild symptoms of depression.

Sources that contain the highest levels of Omega-3 fatty acids include flax seeds, walnuts, and salmon. So, get happy today with a delicious Salmon Mornay from the SoupedUp Kitchen. Made it? Snap a photo and hashtag it #soupeduprecipes. We love to see your creations on Instagram and Facebook!
