I am wondering how each of us consumes our Omega 3s? FishOil, CodLiver Oil, Krill Oil, Beef, Bison, salmon,other? How much do you take? When do you take it? and do you combine it with Vitamin E or with a meal? If taking a supplement which brand do you use?
Salmon and other coldwater fish (mackerel, halibut), sardines and anchovies several times a week, pastured meat, pastured eggs. Sashimi once a month. My husband hunts, so in a good year, game. Otherwise, lots of locally ranched meat.
I'm not against supplements -- I take Vit D3 since I live the life of a mole, and realistically, that's not going to change soon -- but I'm lucky in that good food sources are available locally, and aren't too expensive.
So far i eat fish everyday, no reason not to. Small fish cook faster on frying pan than bacon so doesnt take long even for breakfast. Salmon i do sous vide (42C), delicious! Now its fish season (especially salmon is local now), i dont bother with beef. Fish often superior nutrition wise i think. at least for omega balance, and if you are fish type of person, its hard not to eat fish :)
I take a small shot glass of Carlson's fish oil immediately after dinner, about 1 ounce. Pour it in, hold it at the front of my mouth, and swallow it with a glass of water. Much preferred to the capsules.
I take two capsules of Green Pastures Fermented Cod Liver Oil every morning.
Some weeks i'll have salmon twice in the the week, but others not.
I try to consume sardines every week too but there are plenty of weeks when i do not.
i don't worry about getting a certain amount of n3s, i just avoid as much n6 as possible, hoping/figuring my ratio is pretty close to 1:1.
I will admit, cheapest supplements I can find taken in bulk (10-15 pills) every other day or so when I remember.
Might get better results with other sources, but I hate oily fish and this seems to give me most of the benefits.
Edited to add that I freeze the capsules because this seems to eliminate the taste and fishy burps for me
