Repair Meal Plans
Foods with very negative scores can be replaced by foods with more positive scores. Omega Meals software shows how the positive and negative scores combine in an “ordinary” meal with a typical Americans health risk assessment value near 79% n-6 in HUFA.
Replacing two foods can give a less inflammatory diet Replacing sausage (-17.8) with salmon (+40.5) and salad dressing (-47.9) with olive oil (-10.2) lets you NIX the 6 and EAT the 3 to give a repaired, balanced plan (Balance Score, -1.7). Just accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative !
Three more replacements (coconut oil,-1.9, for olive oil, -10.2; wine, 0.0 for avocado, -10.0; and flax-pretzels, +9.1 for walnuts, -44.4) can give a plan with health risk assessment values near 23% n-6 in HUFA (Balance Score, +4.1). You do not need to eat whale blubber and seal meat to have a HUFA balance like an Inuit from Greenland!
NIX the 6 and EAT the 3 to have an antiinflammatory diet . A primitive diet rich in foliage can also give a very positive average Omega 3-6 Balance. There are many ways to be balanced.
