10 Foods High in Fatty Acids That You Should Eat More Of

2. Eggs

No breakfast is ever complete without eggs—unless you are allergic to eggs, of course. But for those who aren’t, eggs are an important part of a balanced breakfast. They are high in protein, easy to cook, and very delicious, and can be served in many different ways. They’re also a main ingredient in most cakes *wink*. As it turns out, a cup of egg yolks contains about 500 mg of fatty acids, or about 12% of your daily need. This is good news for people who are trying to build muscle and are using eggs as a main source of protein, or for people who love eggs in general – which is everyone, unless you’re allergic to eggs.

3. Milk

If there is one lesson from our mothers that we won’t forget, it’s that drinking milk is essential to build strong bones. This is a fact that is pretty much etched onto our brains ever since we can remember, and this actually due to an extremely effective yet simple ad campaign, but that’s a different topic. At any rate, it is true, milk is necessary to avoid osteoporosis and to build bone density and strength. And as it turns out, it’s also a good source of fatty acids. So keep drinking milk—or eating ice cream, we won’t judge.
