These little swimmers are a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, which
are powerful anti-inflammatory ingredients. When you eat foods
containing omega-3 fatty acids, your body converts them into different
types of compounds including resolvins, which halt inflammation.
Choose foods containing these healthy fats over supplements. Aim for
about two servings of fatty fish—like sardines—per week. To control
calories, choose sardines packed in water instead of oil. Serve them on a
sandwich or salad, or whip up an easy sardine spread with sardines,
shallot, parsley, olive oil, mustard, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt.
Spread on whole-grain crackers.
