Omega Meals software shows how the positive and negative food scores combine in an “ordinary” USA meal to give a typical American Daily Balance Score near -6.7. Replacing foods that have very negative scores by foods with more positive scores can repair the balance of omega-3 and omega-6 nutrients. The repaired menu plans lead to health risk assessment values with lower %omega-6 in HUFA, associated with a lower risk for chronic inflammatory conditions. [ click the plans to see more details]
Replacing turkey (-15.8) with salmon (+52.6) lets you NIX the 6 and EAT the 3 to give the Well-Balanced Meal Plan below (Balance Score, +3). All you need to do is just accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative !
More substitutions give a “Super-Balanced” Plan with a Balance Score of +5.8.
You do not need to eat whale blubber and seal meat to have a HUFA balance like an Inuit from Greenland! Just NIX the 6 while you EAT the 3. A simplified diet rich in foliage can also give a very positive average Omega 3-6 Balance.
