These good fats also help to fight inflammation in the body, resulting in clear, glowing skin. This slow-roasted salmon bowl is a tasty way to get your salmon fix. It also includes avocados, another great source of omega-3s. Walnuts, chia seeds and hemp hearts are also great brain foods rich with omega-3s.
