Omega 3's: Are They A Fish Story?

Healthy Omega-3 fatty acids are found in a variety of fresh foods, but according to resident dietician and "Second Helpings" co-host, Elizabeth Kelsey, seafood, particularly finned fish like salmon and mackerel, is the most efficient source for our bodies. Episode three begins beside Uig Bain the Outer Hebrides, and leads the viewers through three great seafood recipes high in Omega-3's. They include mussels marinara, smoked mackerel pate, and foil roasted salmon with lemon and dill. Out-of-kitchen adventures also season this seaside episode, with host David Jackson collecting the mussels, catching the mackerel and educating viewers about wild vs. farmed salmon prior to preparing the trio of Omega 3-rich delicacies. David takes a dive in Uig Bay for an undersea "Earn What You Eat" segment, re-emphasizing the importance of both healthy food and appealing exercise as the years go by.

The Spices of Life

Herbs and spices offer a bounty of concentrated anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory agents that are greater than almost any other category of foodstuffs. But best of all, spices offer a superior variety of intense flavor alternatives that shame salt and sugar by comparison. Host David Jackson opens the show in the kitchen amidst a bazaar of exotic spices. Donning his apron, it's straight into a pair of outright delicious Indian-influenced recipes, fresh and easy lamb curry and vegetarian saag aloo.

Eating Away at Inflammation

Every recipe in each of the series' episode helps fight inflammation. The saturated fats, sodium and sugar shows teach food behavior to combat heart disease, hypertension and diabetes. However, the episodes about healthier fats, fiber, spices, protein and the vegetable rainbow teach that health-positive meals are also taste positive. But they all help prevent inflammation, no matter what their additional attributes may be.
