Citrus and Mint Vinaigrette with Omega 3

My friends at PurePharma have been coming out with some pretty awesome products lately, and when I heard that they were launching a liquid Omega 3 I couldn't wait to get my hands on it! I've talked a lot about fish oil in the past. It's one of the supplements I swear by and highly recommend. Most of the nutrients we need to thrive we get easily by consuming a healthy diet. However, heart healthy Omega-3 is often one we lack if we aren’t eating a lot of oily fish. Specifically things like salmon, sardines, anchovies, mackerel or trout. I love salmon and eat it quite often. And if you eat Omega-3 rich foods on a regular basis you may not need a supplement. However, if you don’t, or if you’re an athlete, you may need a little bit more. Omega-3 can help to prevent inflammation, enhance recovery and improve endurance performance. So basically I never miss a dose! 

Previously I’d been supplementing with PurePharma’s Omega-3 capsules, which are another high quality product and convenient for traveling. But I love having the liquid option at home. I can add it to juice or a shake, take a shot, or mix it into salad dressing like I did with this recipes.
